The Cade Cunningham saga keeps rolling.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton was in Florida on Monday to pay Cunningham a visit at Montverde Academy. Cunningham, the No. 2 prospect in the 2020 class, was in Chapel Hill this weekend visiting North Carolina.

Cunningham has been heavily linked to OSU for a while now, as Boynton was one of the first college coaches in on him. Boynton hired Cunningham’s brother, Cannen, as an assistant coach this summer. Some thought that was the end of Cade’s recruiting process, but he has said otherwise.

Cunningham took an official visit in Stillwater in early Sept. His UNC visit starts a spree of official visits. For the next three weekends, Cunningham will visit Florida, Kentucky and Washington to finish off his allotted five officials.

Wherever he chooses to go, Cunningham is thought sign in the early signing period, which starts Nov. 13.

Rondel Walker Picks Up OSU Crystal Ball

Also happening Monday, Jerry Meyer, 247 Sports’ Director of Basketball Scouting, predicted in-state star Rondel Walker would land in Stillwater.

For what it’s worth, Meyer is 42-for-46 on 2020 predictions.

This is interesting on a few different levels.

On the surface, Walker is a four-star, Top-100 prospect from Putnam City-West.

Walker took an official visit the same weekend as Cunningham. The two played AAU ball together with Texas Titans. However, Walker was also in Stillwater this weekend, the same time that Bryce Thompson took his official visit.

Thompson, out of Booker T. in Tulsa, is the No. 19 prospect in the 2020 class.

If Walker commits, he’ll be the second guard in the Cowboys’ 2020 class, along with Davonte Davis. As of now, Boynton would have five scholarships to use in his 2020 class, with one already going to Davis, who committed last December.
