“Today, September 20th, 2019, I am leaving the University of Kansas basketball program,” McBride wrote in a note posted to Twitter. “ I decided that the program was not a good fit for me . I will continue to pursue a future basketball career. I would like to thank the basketball staff at KU. Most importantly, I would like to thank my family, especially my dad, who has supported me through this decision.”
“Issac, who we all call Mackey, can play point, but he’s a combo guard who can score,” Self said. “When you watch him, you are so impressed with his range, quickness and explosiveness and his ability to elevate on his shot. We see him as a guy that can come in and obviously give us depth on perimeter shooting. He is a guy that can just score the ball. We haven’t had too many here like that, a natural scorer. He’s a combo guard that can jump up and make a shot wherever he is on the court.”
“We are all disappointed that Issac made this decision , basically on Tuesday,” Self said through a KU athletics release. “After discussing with his family, everybody came to the conclusion that this was not a good fit. We wish Issac the best.”
KU basketball has announced the departure of one of its incoming players.
