CBS expert thinks Kentucky could be 'front and center' if star 2020 commit leaves Oklahoma State
PG Cade Cunningham is the No. 1 overall recruit in the 2020 recruiting class, and he committed to Oklahoma State in part because his brother is a coach there.
However, this week, the NCAA announced a 1-year postseason ban for the Cowboys, so now Cunningham could reconsider that choice.
During his “Eye on College Basketball” podcast on Friday, CBS expert Gary Parrish said he thinks Kentucky could be in the mix for Cunningham if he decides to leave the Cowboys (via 247Sports):
“His brother is on staff, that probably matters, some,” Parrish said of Cunningham possibly sticking with Oklahoma State, “but I promise you, every school that was in there before he signed with Oklahoma State, they’ll be back in there right now. Kentucky probably front and center.”
Cunningham is a native of Arlington, Texas, and is the top player in the 2020 class, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
Kentucky already has the No. 1 overall recruiting class for 2020, per 247Sports. Adding Cunningham would be huge for coach John Calipari and his staff.
