The 6-foot-1 redshirt senior posted news of his decision on Twitter.
“After many conversations with God and my family, I will be declaring for the 2023 NFL draft,” Cunningham wrote in the post.
As a result of his decision, Cunningham will not play in Louisville’s Fenway Bowl against the Cincinnati Bearcats.
The Cardinals will also be without star running back Tiyon Evans, who previously declared for the draft.
Louisville will also be led by interim coach Deion Branch, a decision made necessary when Scott Satterfield left the Cardinals for their Fenway Bowl opponents, Cincinnati.
Cunningham finishes his Cardinals career with 120 combined passing and rushing touchdowns (70 passing, 50 rushing)
which broke Jackson’s previous school record of 119. His 50 rushing touchdowns are tied with Jackson for the Cardinals record.
