Former SEC starter makes stunning decision on his potential transfer @SECCountryUK/Twitter

Drew Barker was one of Mark Stoops first good recruits at Kentucky in the 2015 recruiting class. However, it seems that Barker has been phased out a bit as he never appeared in more than five games during his career in Lexington due mostly to injuries. He could have become a graduate transfer this offseason, but his father says that he will take a much different path.

From The Courier Journal:

Barker finished his undergraduate degree at UK in August and spent the fall semester working toward a master’s degree in public financial management at UK’s Martin School of Public Policy and Administration. He now plans to stay at UK to finish his graduate degree, his father said.

Barker would have been immediately eligible at whatever school he had chosen should he have ended up transferring out. However, his love for Kentucky it seems, will keep him in Lexington and finishing out his career as a regular student.

In 12 career games, Barker finished his collegiate career with 747 passing yards, five touchdowns, seven interceptions and had one rushing touchdown.
