Drew Barker was quickly becoming the Andrew Wiggins of football. He was constantly teasing fans on twitter about which schools he wanted to attend, when he was going to set a date and when he was going to announce.
After weeks of speculation, Barker has finally set his announcement date as May 10th, one week from today.
According to Rvials, Barker is a four star quarterback, the sixth ranked pocket passer in his class and the 153rd overall player in the country. Barker has offers from UNC, Louisville, Ole Miss, Miami (Fl.), and a host of other schools.
It would be a huge recruiting boon for Mark Stoops and his staff. Barker is a Kentucky native and has close ties with many players in the Northern Kentucky/Cincinnati area.
More way-too-early preseason love for the Wildcats is still coming in. This time USA Today has Willie Cauley-Stein and Andrew Harrison are being tabbed as second team All Americans.
The first team honors go to Andrew Wiggins, Russ Smith, Mitch McGary, Marcus Smart and Shabazz Napier.
Julius Randle and Aaron Harrison fall under the “others receiving votes” category. Don’t worry Julius, the only list that matters is the one that they put out at the end of the season.
