Boynton, Cowboys Get Top Commitment
Jordan King - November 6, 2019 9:25 am
Coach Mike Boynton has hit the recruiting trail hard since taking over the Oklahoma State men’s basketball program several years ago and his hard work paid off in a huge way last night about 6:30 when Cade Cunningham put out this Twitter video.

Cunningham is ranked as the No. 2 recruit in the 2020 class according to 247 sports and is one of the top-20 recruits in the past decade in all of college basketball.
He is a 6-foot-6 combo guard, who has the ability to play point guard and possesses a unique skillset to handle the ball and run the show.
Jeff Goodman of Stadium Sports called Cunningham’s decision the biggest story in college basketball last night.
Whatever happens tonight on the court here at MSG won’t be the biggest news in college hoops. This will: https://t.co/nGPrzElZqV

Cunningham’s brother Cannen joined Boynton’s staff earlier this season.
OSU’s recruiting class now sits at two with Cunningham joining 4-star shooting guard Rondel Walker.
Next OSU will await the decision from 5-star combo guard Bryce Thompson from Tulsa, who is set to make his decision on Nov. 12 at 10am. Thompson checks in as the 19th ranked player in the country.
The Pokes are reportedly also in on the No. 49 ranked player in the country in JT Thor, who is a 6-foot-8 power forward from Georgia.
