Another quarterback has thrown his hat into the 2018 NFL Draft, and he promises to break the internet's anonymous scout industry in the process.

Having Jackson back for his senior season would have assured that Louisville can continue to compete at a high level in the ACC, but Petrino doesn't have the luxury of feeling sorry for himself after losing a transcendent talent to an inevitable future at the next level.

The logical successor is now redshirt freshman quarterback Jawon Pass.

"After much discussion with my family and coaches, I have made the decision to take the next step in my career and enter the 2018 NFL Draft". It has been nothing short of an honor to be a member of #CardsNation and to play for this university.

Jackson certainly left his mark on college football as one of the most dynamic quarterbacks Louisville has seen. Jackson threw for over 3,600 yards and ran for over 1,600 yards, finishing third in Heisman voting.

He'll have to hold off Malik Cunningham, a freshman who was rated also rated as a 4-star recruit from Alabama.

"My time in Louisville has produced some fo the best memories of my life", Jackson wrote.

Between Pass, Cunningham, Travis and the walk-ons, Louisville has a mixture of playing styles to choose from.

His arm is not perfect, but he has his moments of brilliance thanks to his incredible speed success improvising. Meanwhile, Travis is somewhere in between the two.

The 2016 Heisman Trophy winner announced that he will forgo his final season of NCAA eligibility in a post on Twitter, and thanked the Cardinals for all of their support. The only blemish? A 6-point loss to Clemson.
