Barker to UK is becoming a very real possibility.

I vote for Zach Darlington from Apopka FL. Willing to bet he's a better college QB in the end.
Coach's kid, let APK to the FL title in 8A , our biggest classification.
Runs and throws beautifully, and by all I can tell has a special mind for the game, very Spur-worthy.
Wake me up when he commits to uk

Let me start this post off by saying after my sophomore year of playing college baseball we had a terrible season and got a new coach. The new guy came in and was super fired up about everything. We had a new philosophy, new offense, new uniforms and were building a new stadium. In our hearts we couldn't be more exited and couldn't wait to go out there bc we knew that no team stood a chance against us on the field. Long story short the season started, we were miserable again and the coach only lasted about 3 seasons.
Yea I'm sure the staff there is preaching all the new coaches new attitude stuff that sounds great and gets everyone fired up at first. But, in the end when they have another miserable season and only drawing 5,000 people he will have a change of heart.
Barker is the only QB we are recruiting. And he knows that. If that is not priority..l don't know what is.
We only have 15 spots for 2014...and that is being generous. Could be as little as 13. We don't have room to be wasteful. Barker is the QB we are pinned as the guy we want. It's him or bust.
No way he goes to KY. Mark Stoops can't even bring them out of the hole.
He is no longer saying in interviews that USC leads, something he has done since we've been recruiting him.
Our Spring game is the same day as UK, that will give a real indication of where he is heading. For the longest time he said he would attend ours, we'll see if that happens now.
Dismissing UK as a contender here is foolish though.
"I was telling them how Kentucky has done a complete 180. I went from kind of a, 'I'm never going to go there,' almost the way Jason Hatcher was talking. I saw some of the comments from him like, 'Kentucky will never be good in the SEC.' But when coach Stoops came it was a complete 180. They really started coming at me, saying I was their number one guy and how big of a priority I was to them."
That is from his latest rivals article.

Tyler Harris or Jacob Park
It's Tyler Harris. If Park is the guy from Stratford, our coaches told his coach that we have no intention of offering.
Tyler Harris has a bazooka.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
Hate to see this kid waste his time , only one Stoops brother is HC material. Uk will being changing again in 3 years.
With Nosovitch and Mitch in the system, I'd rather pass on a QB IF they don't get Barker. Use that scholly on a position of need.
Whio wrote the article? A guy that covers KY for Rivals? If so, barker was probably being "positive" about KY if he was being interviewed by a KY guy, plus they could have cherry-pikced his comments. Geez, after what we just went though, let's just let it play out. If we miss on him, it will not be a serious problem since we can go after another QB or just pass on a 2014 QB due to the small class.
This is total bs. Anyone who thinks Stoops coming there will change anything is fooling thereselves...especially if they're kentucky fans.
TBS members dismissing this won't have any effect on his decision. Did he start saying USC doesn't lead, or that he no longer has a leader?
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.
tend to agree here
Is Louiville still part of Kentucky?
Why all of a sudden people are panicking here over a "D Coordinator turned coach" with zero experience at QB?
Let's give Barker some credit here as I'd hope he knows that QB position alone is no panacea to UK's current state of football program. He plays QB and should be at least an adept analyst.
I'll start worrying if Stoop's goes 11- 0 this fall and scoring 40 points or more per outing.
The facts are on our side so,we should keep our fingers crossed instead of getting worked up until the young man informs our coaches that he'll be going to KY.
