One program’s loss is another’s latest pledge.

Hours after decommitting from David Bailiff and the Rice Owls on Wednesday evening, Coppell quarterback Brady McBride announced his commitment to the Memphis Tigers.

A three-star prospect, McBride committed to Rice on June 16 after seeing his recruitment take off throughout the spring, picking up all eight up his offers since late February. Along with invitations from Memphis and Rice, McBride also holds offers from Bowling Green, Columbia, Illinois State, Montana State, Navy and Texas State

A pro-style passer who guided Coppell to a 10-3 record in 2016, McBride completed 194-of-324 passes for 2,571 yards and 32 touchdowns as a junior, along with another 547 yards and seven scores with his legs en route to District 9-6A Offensive MVP honors.

McBride now becomes commit No. 12 for Mike Norvell and Memphis, lifting the Tigers’ 2018 class to No. 72 nationally and No. 7 in the AAC. He’s currently the only Memphis quarterback pledge this cycle.

McBride is ranked as the nation’s No. 1,870 player, No. 67 pro-style quarterback and the No. 248 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
