Randall Cunningham II, the son of former Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings Pro-Bowl quarterback Randall Cunningham, is one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation. Despite not being the starting quarterback in his first three seasons of high school, he has still drawn a lot of interest from schools such as Oregon, LSU, Baylor and a few others. He will finally get a chance to take over for Anu Solomon, who was one of the top quarterbacks in the nation, and is now at Arizona.
Cunningham II’s high school, Bishop Gorman, is in Las Vegas, Nev. The Gaels are one of the top teams in the Nation and are coming off a fourth consecutive state championship. And after seeing limited time last season, Cunningham is now the starter and will likely be the featured weapon in both the passing game and running game after last season’s starting running back, ESPN 300 recruit Nathan Starks, was dismissed from the school. The light is very green for Cunningham to light it up this season and draw some serious offers from other big-name schools.
Cunningham stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs around 185 pounds. While he isn’t the most polished passer, he has been credited for being very accurate for a guy they have labeled as a dual-threat quarterback. He also has a chance to add some bulk for a guy who will probably reach 6-foot-5 by graduation and look more the part of quarterback while remaining a threat on the ground.
If Cunningham has a big season, he could very well be the most coveted uncommitted quarterback, as most of the guys listed ahead of him on Rivals and ESPN have already committed. He could also certainly raise his ranking after a good showing this season, which many expect out of the young quarterback.
