South Carolina's top quarterback target, four-star Drew Barker, recaps recent trip to Columbia that spanned three days.
It's good to finally hear from Barker. I think we still land him but he is obviously intrigued with the whole local hero deal.
@leftymusic @grookster @beng803
Which coaching staff is proven on part of a program that has back-to-back bowl wins and 11-2 seasons? Which program cares the most about football and not hoops? All the answers and Barker's decision should be simple. He can still go back to KY and get accolades for leading USC to a conference championship and perhaps more!!

What's a 115 letter?
If he goes with the local hero decision, can't blame him at all.
I can definitely understand why he would want to help out his homestate team. It wasn't that long ago that we were struggling to put together winning seasons. I remember feeling so disappointed when we lost great in state talent to the powerhouse schools and how thrilled I was when we landed players like Stephon Gilmore and then Lattimore.
I agree you couldn't blame him for staying home and it was special when we got those big time in state guys, but i like our chance to land barker IF he sticks with those visit dates and his decision time frame also stays the same.

Kentucky is terrible. This really should be a easy choice. I do not believe Stoops will ever be able to elevate that Program into a SEC Contender in Football.
