Gamecocks in the hunt to land premier Chicago small forward

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Josh Cunningham gave his recent visit to Columbia high marks. Can Frank Martin reel him in to (perhaps) complete what seems to be a very helpful 2014 class?

As we told you on Friday, Josh Cunningham traveled to Columbia from Chicago this weekend to check out Frank Martin's program in advance of his decision this coming Friday as to where he'll attend college next fall.  The visit coordinated with the Gamecocks' spring game, which gave Cunningham the chance to see the electric atmosphere associated with South Carolina athletics.

According to an interview with Phil Kornblut, Cunningham enjoyed the trip:

"I really enjoyed it," he said of his USC visit.  "I liked the campus.  I liked the team.  I liked the coaching staff.  They had everything that I want to do academically.  If I go there, they will push me to make me a better player."

The 6'6" small forward would become the fourth member of the Gamecocks' 2014 class, and would come in as the highest-ranked player of the class, at 107th in the 247Sports.com composite rankings.  His addition would mean the Gamecocks need at least two scholarship players currently expected back next season to leave the program in order to free up the necessary scholarships to welcome the four new additions.  There's been no public indication from the coaching staff what players might transfer or when the university might announce those departures.
