Drew Barker is still getting it done on the recruiting trail


Yesterday’s 4-star Tight End commit C.J. Conrad had a Q&A session with the Courier-Journal that is well worth a read.  Conrad opened up about his commitment to the Cats as well as the recruiting process. Conrad talked a lot about how Kentucky has really put a stamp on the Ohio recruiting scene, treating it like it’s own home state. Conrad also said one player in particular had a major impact on his decision to commit to Kentucky. Can you guess who?

Drew Barker, of course.

“I think Drew Barker is an absolute stud. He’s going to be really good, and that had a big impact on my decision too— having a quarterback that’s a year older than me and that’s going to have a really good future there. He’s going to be throwing me the ball and getting the offense involved… I liked how the pace of practice went, and that had a big impact on my decision as well.”

Add Conrad to the list of commits/recruits who plan to do their part on the recruiting trail. Conrad said his focus will shift to trying to help get #1 rated RB Damien Harris (from Madison Southern) to commit to the Cats as well.

    They way we are recruiting, we could have 4 wins by 2016. Just have to gird up our loins and roll up our sleeves.

      Sometimes it sucks playing in a big boy football conference, not the AAC, I mean Big Least, or wait, Conference USA, shoot I meant the Metro Conference, dang it, I meant the Missouri Valley Conference….. Wherever. You know where I mean!

      Seriously, congrats to Lil’ Bro finally joining a real conference!

      no way louisville fans would watch decades of kentucky football in order to make completely accurate statements like the first one here. people like me are simply tired of letting kentucky football kick us in the face. enjoy 3-9, barker.

      Schwing I rarely read the comments section of KSR specifically due to you and a handful of others. I rank you among the worst of the worst. I try to live positively looking for the best in people and situations. The negativity of people like you just drag the world down. You make demeaning comments without any thoughtful commentary.

    What type of personality flaw motivates posters like the one above to waste their time and identify themselves as idiots at the same time?

      it’s a personality flaw called “living in reality.”

    It’s called stupidity. Unfortunately, the infliction is incurable.

    Barker is the real deal. No way Towles should start. He had his chance and blew it
