According to McPherson High School’s Twitter account today, the Class of 2017 has selected 1982 MHS grad and current Oklahoma State men’s basketball coach Brad Underwood as its graduation speaker.

Underwood is in his first year as Oklahoma State coach and the Cowboys are off to a 9-2 start, including a decisive win over Wichita State on Saturday at Intrust Arena.

Underwood coached three years at Stephen F. Austin, where he led the Lumberjacks to a pair of NCAA Tournament victories.

He previously was an assistant coach at South Carolina and for many years served under Bob Huggins and Frank Martin at his alma mater, Kansas State, where he played for his final two years under the legendary Jack Hartman.
