    Cade Cunningham has set five official visits for this fall.

    The 6-foot-7 point guard from Texas and Montverde (FL) Academy will visit Oklahoma State (Sept. 7), North Carolina (Sept. 27), Florida (Oct. 5), Kentucky (Oct. 13) and Washington (Oct. 20), according to Rivals.com.

    Those are the final five schools on his list.

    Most basketball observers believe Cunningham will ultimately land at Oklahoma State after the school hired his older brother Cannen Cunningham to the staff.

    “I think I’m pretty far along [in my recruitment],” he told ESPN’s Paul Biancardi at halftime of the Peach Jam final. “My brother getting hired doesn’t speed me up too much. I’m just happy for him getting the job.

    “I’ve always put out there and said that whenever I’m ready to commit, I’ll commit. If that was the spot I wanted to go right now, I would’ve committed by now so my recruitment is still open. I’m still open to all my schools.”

    He added: “I want to play for a coach that is going to let me play my game. Obviously, a school that is going to compete right away for a national championship. I want to win my first year.

    “There are a lot of things. I want to play for a team that plays defense, for sure. Those are the teams that win. Good coaches. I feel that all the schools in my top ten have great coaches. Just a coach that is going to let me do what I do.”
