There’s been a change in plans regarding the announcement of a college choice by 6-6 Josh Cunningham of Chicago.  His coach said Monday night Cunningham will not make an announcement Friday afternoon at Morgan Park High School as planned because the school is closed this week and the gym won’t be available.Coach Nick Irvan said the announcement will now be made next week, possibly on Monday, but that’s not definite at this point.  This delay means Cunningham probably will get the chance to make an unofficial visit to DePaul  before making his decision.  The dead period this week would have prevented him from getting to DePaul before a Friday announcement.

Cunningham and his mother visited USC this past weekend and his coach backed up what Cunningham said Sunday after the visit, that he had a good time.  “He said he enjoyed the visit,” Irvan said.  “He liked everything he saw.”

The coach said Cunningham will not cut down his list of six finalists and will just pick from that group.  The others on the list are Indiana, Creighton, Bradley, Minnesota and DePaul.

Irvan does not sense a favorite right now.  “It’s hard to tell,” he said.  “One days he likes South Carolina a lot, one day he likes Indiana a lot, one day he likes Bradley a lot,” Irvan said chuckling as an example of Cunningham is struggling with his decision.
