2020 five-star guard Cade Cunningham could be making a decision in the immediate future.
According to Rivals recruiting analyst Corey Evans, the nation’s No. 2 overall prospect could announce his decision “in the coming days.”
The only issue? If Cunningham does make his commitment that soon, Evans believes it’ll be to Oklahoma State.
“For Cunningham, the word is that his decision could be made in the coming days and, if it is, would be in favor of Oklahoma State,” Evans said. “While there was a lot of talk that he was leaning toward Kentucky last month, I have not budged from my prediction.”
The reasoning? Once again, Cunningham’s brother, Cannen Cunningham, being on staff and the Oklahoma State program being on him the earliest among all finalists.
“The Pokes have a lot going for them, of course, with his brother being on staff and Mike Boynton being the first power conference coach to offer him,” he continued. “Cunningham could potentially visit Stillwater again this weekend. Be on the lookout, because a commitment could be near.”
In terms of the visit Evans mentioned, Cowboy fan site PistolsFiringBlog.com was the first to report Cunningham taking an unofficial visit to Stillwater this weekend, with Oklahoma State beat writer Jacob Unruh also confirming the report this morning.

While a scheduled unofficial visit with a decision on the horizon certainly isn’t the most promising news, one should note that Oklahoma State’s first regular season game is on Wednesday this week, the middle of the school week for Cunningham. Their second game of the season is this Saturday against UMKC, allowing the five-star guard to see his brother coach before Montverde Academy’s basketball season begins on Nov. 19.
2020 five-star guard Bryce Thompson – who is visiting Oklahoma State tomorrow – is set to announce his college decision on Nov. 12, with Kansas seen as the heavy favorite.
Top-100 prospect Rondel Walker, Cunningham’s AAU teammate and friend, is Oklahoma State’s lone commitment for 2020 leading up to the early signing period.
