Omaha’s Isaiah Poor Bear Chandler, a 6-foot-9 center, committed to Wichita State on Sunday, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
Chandler is a senior at Omaha Central. He is ranked a four-star recruit by ESPN and No. 1 in Nebraska. He averaged 14.2 points and 9.4 rebounds as senior, according to the World-Herald.
“Committing to Wichita State is a blessing,” Chandler told the World-Herald. “The campus is beautiful and I love the intensity that Coach (Gregg) Marshall instills in his players.”
Chandler signed with New Mexico in November. He was released from his commitment, following a coaching change, in April.

He earned All-Metro Conference and second-team All-Nebraska honors as a senior.
“Isaiah is great on his feet,” former New Mexico coach Craig Neal said in a news release in November. “He is nimble on his toes and can run well. He is low post player, but can also extend it and make threes. He is going to be a really good player here, as is Chris. I am really excited to get him and Chris on campus. Isaiah has a body like Drew Gordon and I think he will have an unbelievable career.”
