All I want for Christmas

What's on your Christmas list? A new car? A new bike? A new life? Oh yes, how we wish we could get that last one, but just in case you are a major university and you are looking for a major offensive lineman, chances are, I have a pretty good idea of your short list of wishes to be granted. Ian-Yates Cunningham is making everyone's short list on wishes they would like to come true.

Ian-Yates Cunningham (Hebron Texas)-(OL-6'5-300-350/bench-500/squat-5.0/40) Currently, Ian is on everyone's wish list. Having collected well over 30 offers at this point with more coming in each week, he's a Texas lineman every school is hoping to have under their Christmas tree, as Ian wishes to get a decision made before the new year. "It's not that I haven't enjoyed this entire process, it's just I know what I want pretty much. I have my list of schools, just need to make my visits and decide."

It has, for the most part, been a three horse race with Notre Dame, Virginia, and Georgia Tech all leading for Cunningham's service, with Nebraska and Texas A&M always following behind. But, now the Cornhuskers have moved up in his eyes and a visit is in the works. "Coach Solich and Coach Gill came to my game the night before they played A&M. They talked to me about where I stand with them and where they stand with me. A lot of things got straightened out."

With Notre Dame (Dec 6th) and Virginia (Dec 13th) already have officials set, Ian wishes to get those final two visits (Georgia Tech and Nebraska) sometime during the season. "I don't want make this any longer than it has to be, I'm hoping to get both those visits done in November sometime"

As for what Ian is looking for at the next level "It comes down to two things mainly. My relationship with the coaches is probably going to be the most important thing, but also my goal is to play in the NFL. If I feel a school can give me a better shot than another at reaching that goal it will be a factor."

Ian hopes to major in either business or communication. He is also fully qualified academically.
