Drew Barker decides to leave Kentucky

Drew Barker decides to leave Kentucky

With that being said, I will be exercising the graduate transfer option and will be finishing my Master's degree and playing my 5th year at another university. The announcement came via his Twitter account on Tuesday evening.

Barker was a four-star recruit in the class of 2014 out of Conner High School. Upon arrival in Lexington, things didn't go as planned for Barker. Not only that, he was also involved in an altercation at a bar that eventually led to him being sucker punched inside an Eastern Kentucky University dorm.

Barker had some off-field incidents early in his career. Johnson led United Kingdom to 14 wins and two bowl berths in two years. Barker threw for 747 yards, five touchdowns, and seven interceptions during his United Kingdom career.

Wilson is an Oklahoma native who signed with OR out of high school as a dual-threat QB.

"Football has taken me places that I have never dreamed of and I'm excited to see where it takes me next".

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. Johnson seized the job during Barker's absence and held onto the role throughout this season. It was more about what Stephen Johnson did than what Barker didn't do.

Barker's move means Kentucky will enter the 2018 football season without a quarterback on its roster who has ever taken a snap in a Division I game.

Now, Stephen Johnson will walk into the sunset, leaving the quarterback position for 2018 vacant.

The junior quarterback will be eligible to play immediately next season.

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.

Barker's Kentucky career officially comes to end but in a sense, it really never got started. It's unfortunate when someone loses their job after an injury but the Wildcats responded to Johnson. Just ask Drew Barker.
