WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Wichita State Shockers have completed their 2019 recruiting class with the announcement that Trey Wade will be joining the program in the fall.

Wade, a 6-foot-7-inch forward, made the announcement on Twitter Thursday afternoon, committing after taking an official visit to Wichita State over the weekend.

A member of the high school recruiting class of 2016, Wade initially attended UTEP, transferring after his freshman season with the Miners. From there, he attended South Plains Community College, where he averaged 13.4 points and just under 7 rebounds per game as a sophomore for the Texans. JUCO Recruiting lists Wade as the numebr 23 overall junior college prospect in the country.

The Marietta, Georgia native made the announcement ahead of a schedueld visit with the University of Florida. The Gators, however, filled their roster this past Tuesday, leaving the Shockers as the top remaining suitor for Wade.

Wade joins Grant Sherfield in completing the Shockers' 2019 recruiting class. Sherfield, a combo guard from Sunrise Christian in Wichita, announced his commitment to WSU Tuesday. The two are joined by three high schoolers that signed letters of intent in the winter--Tyson Etienne, Noah Fernandez and DeAntoni Gordon.
