University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Barker to announce his decision date today?


Kentucky’s top football target from the 2014 class sent a tweet last night insinuating that big news is coming soon. I say that because the tweet read, “Big news coming soon.” It even had a smiley face wearing sunglasses at the end.


So what is this big news?

Word on the mean streets of Burlington, Ky is Barker is going to tell everyone when he plans to announce his decision. There were rumors last week that Barker would make his decision date public soon; this tweet supports said rumors and it could be as early as this afternoon when he names his date.

For Kentucky, it’s important to lock up a commitment from Barker as quickly as possibly. The Wildcats are believed to be the leader at this point so it’s time to reel him in before others join the party.

Let’s get it done. Come on down.

    This coming from a guy that’s seen both him and Patrick play multiple times in high school…I’d take Towles. Not much of a difference other than Drew has a slightly stronger arm. The reason I’d prefer Towles, though, is the level of talent they were up against at the high school level. Highland’s schedule and Conner’s aren’t even comparable.

    It’s not like they are signing yet….love to hear the guys saying they are committing to UK, but until they sign it doesn’t really mean anything.

    Are we reaching a point in recruiting that the breaking news is when we know the news will be news??? No offense to any of these highly touted players, but come on man.

    #2 Sorry I tend to disagree abit with you as I have seen them both play several times as well you may be right against the talent played against not by much though but Barker is way more a duel threat QB than Towles. Just my opinon. Regardless GO CATS!!!

    Drew Barker could be a 1st Team All-American playing in Neil Brown’s system. With all of the studs Stoops is bringing in on offense, Barker will have plenty of weapons at his disposal.

    I’m in agreement with the prevailing sentiment here. An announcement to announce when there is going to be an announcement? I want the kid in blue just as much as anyone, but this is ridiculous.
