Drew Barker Says He Will Transfer For His Graduate Season

Drew Barker Says He Will Transfer For His Graduate Season

Johnson calmed the Wildcat offense and led them to a comeback victory vs. EKU, essentially slamming the door on any quarterback competition. He sat out the 2014 season as a redshirt, during which time he was involved in two off-the-field incidents that damaged his reputation. Stephen Johnson took over the starting role and never gave it up.

Kentucky's roster for 2018 now includes four quarterbacks. Barker was the starting quarterback for United Kingdom in 2016, but missed the final nine games due to a back injury.

"One of the greatest accomplishments of my life was receiving my degree from the University of Kentucky", Barker posted on Twitter. It was more about what Stephen Johnson did than what Barker didn't do.

If he stayed at United Kingdom, he would have to compete with redshirt freshman Gunnar Hoak and recent signee Terry Wilson - along with freshmen Danny Clark and Walker Wood - for the starting job in spring practice. He got to start the final two games of his redshirt freshman season in 2015.

Kentucky is set to have four quarterbacks on scholarship when the 2018 season begins: Rising redshirt sophomore Gunnar Hoak, incoming sophomore Terry Wilson and rising redshirt freshmen Danny Clark and Walker Wood. He underwent back surgery and missed the rest of the season. Barker made brief appearances during the 2017 season, but mostly played when Johnson was injured. The product of Conner High School threw for almost 300 yards and added four touchdowns in the first half alone vs. He redshirted in 2016, then transferred to Garden City Community College in Kansas after sophomore Justin Herbert won the Ducks' starting quarterback job.

Hoak has yet to throw a pass in an official United Kingdom game but has been impressive in two spring-game outings. His longest pass completion went for 72 yards and he tossed a 28-yard strike this past season.
