Bryce Thompson Responds to Cade Cunningham’s Commitment

Thompson is tweeting eyeballs.

Mike Boynton’s 2020 super class might actually be happening.

For weeks the thought of getting Cade Cunningham or Bryce Thompson has a dream of the Oklahoma State faithful who follow recruiting. But with Cunningham’s commitment Tuesday night, the thought of Cunningham and Thompson might just become reality.

Less than 30 minutes after Cunningham posted his commitment video, Thompson tweeted this:

Thompson will be in Stillwater on Wednesday night for one last unofficial visit before committing next Tuesday. Thompson was initially supposed to be in Norman tonight as Oklahoma starts its season, but Rivals analyst Corey Evans said he canceled that trip and OU coach Lon Kruger will visit Thompson in his home earlier Wednesday.

Is this because Cunningham’s commitment made up Thompson’s mind or was it something as simple as a scheduling error? Only time will tell as the world waits for Thompson’s commitment.

OSU’s 2020 class ranked 20th in the nation right now with only two people in it. A three-man class of Thompson, Cunningham and Rondel Walker, would rank fifth in the country with Mike Boynton still having scholarships to give.

      If Thor signed would we be #1 or #2 in the country?

        we would have the #3 ranked class if we land Thompson and Thor

    I just don’t see Thompson going to OU at this point. Why would he go there knowing he is going to be playing against Cunningham and Walker at least twice a year when he could play on the same team with them and maybe do something special?

      Possibly because he’s more worried about which NBA city he’ll be buying a rooftop condo in in 2021 than he is how well his team does in college. Not sure if that’s true, but that’d be a good excuse to go to Norman alone instead of teaming up with players as good/Better than him.

        If he’s teamed up with players as good as he is, then he gets more exposure. Not wanting to go to OSU because we have players just as good makes absolutely no sense, especially since we’ve seen time and time again that good players want to play with other good players.

    This scares me. If he says “this changes things” it either means he wasn’t considering us as his #1 choice, or worse, we were but now maybe aren’t?

      Lol scares you. That’s a good news statement.

      It’s no coincidence that he canceled his Ou trip 15 minutes before Cade’s commitment, followed by this tweet. People can say “scheduling error” all they want, but canceling a trip less than an hour before you’re supposed to be there seems a little more fishy than “just a scheduling error” to me. Seems like they would have known a lot sooner than that if he wouldn’t be able to make it.

    My guess about Bryce Thompson’s tweet is that he was going to choose between OSU and OU depending on where Cade committed. Now that Cade is Stillwater bound there is no reason for him to visit OU. That is what the change is. Perhaps this means that Cade was coming this close to picking OU.?Regardless, other top recruits learning that Cade is coming to OSU should put us in the cat bird’s seat for better recruiting. Good players want to play with other good players. Maybe we might even get some top notch transfers down the road.

      Cade’s “this close” school was Kentucky. OU wasn’t even considered by him. Bryce’s decision was probably going to be if Cade went to OSU, he wanted to go to OSU too to play with him. If Cade went to Kentucky, then Bryce would go to OU

    I kind of wonder how much these players recognize the absurdity with how obsessively people follow their tweets and might mess with those people a bit by tweeting stuff like this

    What a critic quote. How Bryce? How does it changes things? And from what to what?

    I think we land them both now. Bryce was likely going to KU, and was taking these last trips to ou and OSU to humor his parents before he moves away. We’re going to get the both now. LET’S GO!!!!!

    Come get you some in Stilly, not that uglass town called Norman. As one of the few that’s gone to both schools, unless you’re gonna join the Greek system, Stilly’s a lot more fun and laidback.

    I still think Bryce goes to Lawrence. But all the talk was that it was between KU and OU. Now I think it’s between KU and OSU. If we can’t get him, I’ll be glad just as long as he doesn’t end up in Norman.
