Mike Cunningham has wrapped up a very successful college tenure at USC Upstate. He averaged over 13 points per game for two straight seasons for the Spartans. The Washington, D.C. native will play his final season elsewhere. He has visits to three big schools set up.

Cunningham reportedly visited Tulane back on April 7. The Green Wave were the only Group of Five program listed in Jon Rothstein's initial report on the schools that he was considering. That list also featured Florida State. It doesn't appear that the Seminoles are really involved anymore.

That could be because of the decision of David Nichols. The former Albany guard, a similar talent to Cunningham, will join Leonard Hamilton's program.

With the 'Noles apparently out, three Power Five programs are still set to host Mike Cunningham.

First up is Oklahoma, on April 19. The Sooners are looking to replace superstar freshman Trae Young.

After that, he will head to Oklahoma State on April 22. On April 25, he will take a trip to Louisville, to visit with new head coach Chris Mack.

Rothstein broke the dates on Twitter. From this afternoon:

Last season, Cunningham led the Spartans in minutes, at 33.5 per game, and was second in scoring at 13.7 points per game. He shot over 38-percent from the floor, and from three-point range, with 225 of his 387 shot attempts came from beyond the arc.

He was a key player for the Spartans through his first two seasons as well. Mike Cunningham averaged 9.8 points as a freshman, and 13.4 as a sophomore for USC Upstate.
