South's 36th-Ranked RB Andrew Cunningham Schedules a Trio of Visits

Schools out of the ACC and Big Ten are scheduled to play host to highly-coveted 2018 running back, Andrew Cunningham.

Andrew Cunningham has already accumulated over 30 offers, and is now ready to take the next step by packing his bags and getting on the road for some unofficial visits.

Labeled as the South's 36th-ranked tailback, Cunningham dissected defenses for nearly 1,500 all-purpose yards and 20 touchdowns during his junior campaign at Tampa (Fla.) Cambridge Christian.

"I'm visiting Indiana, Purdue and Louisville next Wednesday through Sunday," Cunningham said.

Cunningham, who holds additional offers from OregonMarylandKentuckySouth Carolina and Oklahoma State among others, digs in a little bit deeper by expanding on the trio of aforementioned schools.

Indiana: "Indiana is a good program with a great coach like coach (Tom) Allen, the head coach. They've wanted me since my sophomore year and we haven't lost contact one bit, as in me and the coaching staff.

"(Running backs) coach (Mike) Hart is the coach I speak with the most. We just talk about school and how I could fit in their program; just everything really, and to keep working hard on and off the field."

Louisville: "Louisville is a strong program. They've also wanted me ever since my sophomore year, and I have a good connection with the coaching staff, mostly (quarterbacks coach) Nick Petrino.

"He's a cool guy. He keeps it real with me like everyone else, and he personally is pushing very hard to get me."

Purdue: "(Running backs) coach (Chris) Barclay has told me I can come in and start as a true freshman, so that's what definitely stuck out to me. They have a great coaching staff; they're also pushing hard to get me."

With National Signing Day still roughly 10 months down the road, Cunningham says he is not quite ready to serve up any clear-cut leaders in his recruitment.

"No, I don't have a legit top school right now," Cunningham said. "Everyone recruiting me is fair game."
