Source: PF Josh Cunningham expected to visit Northwestern Saturday afternoon

Josh Cunningham, a power forward entering his senior year at Morgan Park, is expected to take an unofficial visit to Northwestern on Saturday afternoon, a source told the Sun-Times.

The 6-7 power forward is reportedly considering in-state schools Bradley, Northern Illinois and DePaul in addition to Northwestern. Multiple reports also indicate that Nebraska and Oklahoma are contenders.

Landing Cunningham would make the 2014 recruiting class the best in Northwestern history. St. Rita’s Vic Law, considered by most recruiting services to be amongst the best 100 players in his class, has already given the Wildcats his verbal commitment.
