LSU has long been the leader for three-star Alabama quarterback Malik Cunningham.
That was, until late Tuesday night.
Coming off a promising visit to Louisville, Cunningham swapped LSU and Louisville, dropping the Tigers into the No. 2 spot among his top schools.
“Louisville is panning out to be the best fit for me,” Cunningham told SEC Country on Tuesday.
“I’m not saying that LSU isn’t, but I’m just going where my heart is leading me to right now.”
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback out of Park Crossing High School (Montgomery, Ala.) still plans on making a second visit to LSU, though he does not have a date in mind just yet.
The Tigers remain one of Cunningham’s top choices because they’re offering him the chance to play behind center, unlike some other SEC schools courting him as an athlete.
With that on the table, LSU is not completely out of the hunt to land Cunningham just yet.
“They just need to make me feel welcomed,” Cunningham said. “I’m not saying that they didn’t, though.”
