It’s finally official. Mark Stoops just announced that after “thorough evaluation and a hard fought competition,” Patrick Towles has been named Kentucky’s starting quarterback. Here are Stoops’ quotes about the decision:
“After thorough evaluation and a hard fought competition, we are naming Patrick Towles as our starting quarterback. This competition has brought out the best in our quarterbacks and I’m confident in Patrick moving our team forward.”
Patrick has been considered the frontrunner since spring practice. No word on whether Reese Phillips or Drew Barker will be the backup, but hopefully we’ll hear more at today’s open practice.
