OL Ian-Yates Cunningham is leading Hebron High School (Lewisville, TX) to its first ever winning season and a possible playoff berth. However, due to the team’s success, he was forced to delay one of his visits.
“I had to postpone my visit to Georgia Tech [for November 8],” said Cunningham. “I will reschedule the visit some time in the future.”
In addition to Georgia Tech, Cunningham plans on visiting Nebraska on November 29, Notre Dame on December 6, and Virginia on December 13. He has no timetable as to when he will make a final decision, although he knows he wants to take at least these four official visits.
“They are all pretty much even right now,” said Cunningham said of his top four schools. “I am going to take all four of my official visits. I haven’t yet decided when I will make my decision.”
Recently, Oklahoma had climbed up Cunningham’s list following an unofficial visit to Norman, OK, with Hebron teammate Lewis Baker. It appeared Oklahoma would have a good shot at landing Cunningham if they decided to offer, however the Sooners have since dropped down on his list.
“Today I received a pamphlet from Missouri, and it stated the graduation rates of all the Big 12 schools,” said Cunningham. “Oklahoma was last in the Big 12 in graduation rates. I don’t think I will go there now.”
While Cunningham’s top four is even at this time, Cavalier fans can feel encouraged about one thing – Cunningham’s blossoming friendship with current Virginia verbal commitment, Lake Brantley (FL) OL Jordy Lipsey.
“We talk all the time,” said Cunningham of his friendship with Lipsey. “Every time we talk the conversation gets longer. And now [PA Tight End Jonathan] Stupar is getting in the act. They are all really good guys.”
With the Georgia Tech visit cancelled, Cunningham will now concentrate on helping Hebron defeat District 6-4A foe Denton Ryan. A Hebron victory or an Azle High School loss to Denton High School gets Hebron into the 6-4A playoffs.
