Malik Cunningham is the unquestioned leader of this group heading into the 2022 season. Louisville is desperate to find a capable back up. Evan Conley played injured last year, Brock Domann was very green. A year later and healthier and perhaps the Cards have a better answer than they did in 2021 when Malik had to come off the field.

Who we are watching: Freshman Khalib Johnson joined Louisville as an early enrollee in January but was limited with an injury during the Spring. Khalib has a lot of size and is a proven winner. Don’t be surprised if he moves up the board as the season progresses. But he’s a likely redshirt.
