Three-star 2016 quarterback Gunnar Hoak committed to UK a little over a week ago, and this past weekend, participated in the Rivals Quarterback Challenge in Cincinnati. Rivals’ Josh Helmholdt interviewed Hoak, a Dublin, Ohio native, about his decision to commit to Kentucky and what he likes about the Cats.
“It was a great choice, I thought, it was a great situation to get into knowing how many quarterbacks they have on their roster right now and how they didn’t take a quarterback in the class of 2015, I think I can get there and see myself playing early. I didn’t want to pass that opportunity up.”
Hoak is particularly a big fan of Shannon Dawson, Kentucky’s new offensive coordinator.
“I really love the offense, I can definitely see myself playing in that,” Hoak said. “They throw it around a lot. I know Coach Dawson, he set records at other schools throwing it 89, 90 times a game, so I like that, definitely.”
