Naasir Cunningham, the No. 1 high school basketball recruit of 2024, told ESPN he will sign with sports media company Overtime Elite but keep his college eligibility open.
“This is best place for me to develop as a player, while getting the right education to fall back on at the same time,” Cunningham said. “Overtime built a relationship with my family and I, which was a big factor in trusting them with my future. I want to be the best basketball player I can, a NBA draft lottery pick and hopefully one of the best in the league. Overtime is going to put me in position to become the best player I can.”
Cunningham is the highest-ranked recruit to sign with the upstart league and is considered a prospect with significant upside for the NBA ranks. He is 6-foot-7 with a 6-11 wingspan, impressive fluidity and dynamic perimeter shooting ability.
