Two and a half weeks ago, UK made a recruiting splash when they sent 2014 QB Drew Barker 115 handwritten letters. Dan Mullen at Miss State must’ve caught wind of this, sending the Senior to-be 102 letters today. Good try Miss State, but Starkville just can’t compete with LexVegas.
It looks like South Carolina is falling behind the Big Blue as well. Today Barker told Justin Rowland of Rivals, that he will be opting out of South Carolina’s Spring game to attend the Blue/White game next Saturday. “”I decided to switch because I’ve already seen everything to make a decision based off of South Carolina and I feel very comfortable with them. That being said I want to give other schools a fair shake and make sure I see and do everything at these schools like I did at SC. I will be at (Kentucky’s) practice on (April) 8th but will come back and stay Friday and Saturday.” He is currently on his way to Rocky Top for an unofficial visit this weekend.
