The Wildcats added ESPN 150 QB Drew Barker and our scouts believe his skill set is well suited for new coach Mark Stoops.

What he brings: A rugged, physical mentality as a passer and deceptively good runner. Could be a factor as a designated runner and an ideal fit for the offense that wants to move the launch point in the passing game. Can be a very good improviser with the ball when things break down and is a bit more dynamic than what Kentucky has played with the last few years.

How he fits: Roster is getting deeper and more talented over the last three years with Maxwell Smith, Jalen Whitlow and highly touted Patrick Towles, who both played as true freshmen. Competition is getting ready to heat up, which is a very good thing. If Barker signs in February, the position for the Wildcats will be more talented than it has been in recent memory for new coach Mark Stoops.
