Drew Barker's UK Career didn't have the Storybook Ending it Deserved

UK QB Drew Barker announces plans to transfer for his fifth season

Barker already has a degree from United Kingdom and called it "one of the greatest accomplishments of my life". With that being said, I will be exercising the the graduate transfer option and finishing my Master's degree and playing my fifth year at another university.

The Southeastern Conference offensive player of the year announced his decision Tuesday in a Twitter post.

Barker came to Kentucky as a member of Stoops' first full recruiting class and was considered to be the guy that held the class together. Upon arrival in Lexington, things didn't go as planned for Barker.

Barker had some off-field incidents early in his career. After sitting behind Patrick Towles for almost two seasons, Barker took over with two games remaining in the 2015 season. He led the Wildcats to a win vs. Charlotte but Kentucky fell short of a bowl game after blowing a 21-0 lead vs. Louisville in the season finale. He always returned calls in high school.

Barker saw limited action as a backup to Patrick Towles during the 2015 season, appearing in five games and making two starts. Stephen Johnson emerged and played well.

Alaska Air Group, Inc. (NYSE: ALK)
It is positive, as 53 investors sold ALK shares while 131 reduced holdings. 68 funds opened positions while 179 raised stakes. It increased, as 12 investors sold KAI shares while 43 reduced holdings. 24 funds opened positions while 62 raised stakes.

Wilson, who will have three years of eligibility remaining, played for one season at the University of OR before transferring to Garden City Community College in Kansas.

Drew Barker won't be competing for the starting job at the University of Kentucky next season. He loved United Kingdom - much like former United Kingdom quarterback Patrick Towles who also transferred to play his final season at Boston College. He was big-time recruiting target for then SC coach Steve Spurrier but decided early to sign with Kentucky.

Terry Wilson, a dual-threat junior college quarterback, will be counted on to fill the void vacated by departing senior Stephen Johnson, who led the Wildcats to back-to-back bowl appearances in his two seasons at Kentucky.

While he had a chance to compete for the starting job again this spring, after graduating he is heading elsewhere to finish his final year.
