“What happens now is schools want to get the quarterback in early," Rivals.com recruiting analyst Woody Wommack told Kentucky.com. "You get him on board, point to him and tell the receivers, 'Look, this is the guy you're going to be playing with.' And a guy like Barker, a lot of the other recruits like him. He's a nice kid. He can connect well with anyone. He's relevant nationally. The guys see him and say, 'Hey, I want to play with him at the next level.' He can reach out to them at camps. He's at every camp, every event trying to get guys on board."
We’ve got a ton of stuff coming the next two days, including a feature on Jadeveon Clowney from GoGamecocks The Magazine that I think everyone will really enjoy so check back often between now and Thursday afternoon. (I know I don’t have to tell you to be here Thursday night and Friday morning for all our game coverage.)
