Add another accolade to the long list Cade Cunningham has gathered before even playing a colligate game.

CBS Sports named Cunningham a preseason All-American on Tuesday. The Oklahoma State freshman was a first-team selection and is the only freshman to make the first or second team.

First Team
Jared Butler, Baylor
Luka Garza, Iowa
Ayo Dosunmu, Illinois
Cade Cunningham, Oklahoma State
Corey Kispert, Gonzaga

Second Team
Marcus Zegarowski, Creighton
Remy Martin, Arizona State
Collin Gillespie, Villanova
Trayce Jackson-Davis, Indiana
Jerimiah Robinson-Earl, Villanova

Third Team
Marcus Garrett, Kansas
Garrison Brooks, North Carolina
Sam Hauser, Virginia
Evan Mobley, USC
BJ Boston, Kentucky

Cunningham enters his OSU career (which will almost certainly last only a season) as the No. 1 prospect in the 2020 recruiting class.

He won the Naismith High School Player of the Year this year with Montverde Academy in Florida. The Eagles went 25-0 and were the unanimous No. 1 high school team in the country.

Cunningham was a McDonald’s and Jordan Brand All-American in his final high school season.

He is also projected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft.

“The projected No. 1 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Cunningham is going to inject optimism into the Oklahoma State program because he’s a wonderful blend of size, smarts, strength, maturity and expert decision-making. He’s a power point guard and could turn an otherwise just-OK Cowboys team into one of the 40 best squads in the sport. Would rank high on the short list of must-see college basketball players.”  [CBS Sports]

Cunningham and the Cowboys are set to start their season Nov. 25 at the Golden Window event in Lincoln, Nebraska.
