He's seen the desert and the wheat plains so maybe it's a choice now between the ocean view or a river view.
He's a traveling man.

Shadow, do you mean he walks with the ball like that floppy kid from Butler? (Walkin' to Saint Elmo's Steakhouse.")

Sounds like UDub (University of Washington) was his first choice and they told him - "no thanks".
Per the linked article sounds like Pepperdine has the inside track.
But you never know.

Based solely on what I've read about him i'd be sorely disappointed if offered.

Agreed. X would be his 3rd team in three years. Seems like a malcontent. ASU seemed like an optimal place for him last year. They play at a frenetic pace, and could have used 10 productive players. Their dribble drive offense was tailor made for a good spot up shooter as well. The fact that he couldn't crack the lineup there doesn't bode well for him at X.

Expounding on that remark;
From https://www.kansascity.com/sports/colle ... 74569.html
Cunliffe, a 6-foot-6, 200 pound native of Seattle, who recently left ASU 10 games into his freshman season, on Saturday chose the Jayhawks over Georgetown and Seattle University.

“I just prayed about it and took my time, slept on it a few days, looked at all the pros and cons of it and decided it was the best fit for me. That was it,” Cunliffe said in a phone interview with The Star. He made an official visit to KU for the KU-Kansas State game on Tuesday.

“I think I fit in great,” Cunliffe added, noting he could play the “1, 2, 3 or 4” for the Jayhawks. “The way they play, everybody moves it. They just play good basketball. It’s what I want to be part of, to play with those guys every day in practice and force me to get better.”
