Oklahoma State added a much-needed piece to the puzzle this afternoon as they secured a commitment from 6’1”, 185-pound USC-Upstate grad transfer Michael Cunningham.
I would like to thank God for giving me this opportunity, my family, and everybody in the USC-Upstate community that has embraced me over the years. But with that being said, I’m excited to announce my commitment to Oklahoma State University. #GoPokes #LetsWork pic.twitter.com/yu1ZODZLBC— Mike Cunningham (@Chicomike_) April 24, 2018

Cunningham was a must-get for Mike Boynton. Cunningham played in all 33 games in the 2017-2018 season for USC-Upstate. He averaged 13.4 PPG and was an 82 percent shooter from the charity stripe. Cunningham averaged 13.7 PPG and had a 38.5 field goal percentage. last season and 3 assists per game. He’s known as a physical defender as well. He’ll have a year of eligibility left and will be eligible to play immediately.
Cunningham’s signing gives the Pokes three scholarships to work with for 2018-19. According to NewsOK.com, Boynton is still looking to add another point guard, with an ideal scenario of leaving one scholarship spot open. With Courtney Ramey still up for grabs, grad-transfer Wyatt Walker visiting this weekend, and various other prospects in the mix, it looks like the roster is beginning to take shape.
