Cade Cunningham will visit for Big Blue Madness

This was the original plan all along.

Now it sounds like UK has a very real shot at landing Cade Cunningham this fall.

Cade Cunningham has set his official visit to UK.

Well, technically, it was never changed, as the five-star point guard will make his way to Lexington next week for Big Blue Madness, according to Corey Evans.

Cunningham was previously set to visit that weekend, but he opted to cancel it so he could instead head to Colorado for a Team USA Basketball camp.

But it looks like Cunningham decided he’d rather come to Lexington that weekend, as he’ll be in town for the biggest recruiting weekend of the year at UK.

A 6-6, 215-pound point guard out of Montverde Academy, Cunningham is ranked as the No. 2 overall recruit in 2020, and some believe he can finish as the top prospect. He’s versatile enough to play the 1-3 spots, though he’s really improved as a point guard over the last year, and UK badly needs one for its 2020 class.

Among the schools still in the mix are the Wildcats, North Carolina Tar Heels and Oklahoma State Cowboys. Those are the three schools Cunningham is expected to decide between, and he’s planning to commit sometime during the early signing period.
