Oklahoma State landed potentially the top 2020 prospect in the country on Tuesday night as Cade Cunningham pledged to the Cowboys.
On a day in which college basketball is tipping off across the country, the Cowboys sent waves through the sport by landing a do-it-all guard who puts up numbers all over the board and wins at a high level. Although the Cowboys haven’t been particularly relevant the last several years, head coach Mike Boynton made an intelligent decision to hire Cunningham’s older brother, former SMU wing Cannen Cunningham, to be an assistant coach.
The move paid off for the Cowboys as the 6-foot-7 Cunningham could become a program-changing player.
A big point guard who pushes for triple-doubles, Cunningham has helped Montverde maintain its elite national status as he can score, rebound, find others and defend. The top player in the Nike EYBL this spring and summer with the Texas Titans, Cunningham vaulted near the top of national rankings and showed that he’s an elite prospect at the next level.
Cunningham joins four-star guard and top-100 prospect Rondel Walker in the Oklahoma State recruiting class. The duo forms a strong starting point for the Cowboys as they continue to rebuild.
