According to Jon Hale of the Louisville Courier-Journal, former University of Kentucky quarterback Drew Barker will forego his remaining eligibility and will instead stay at the university to complete his Master’s degree. According to Hale’s article:

“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 had originally announced earlier this month that he was planning on using the graduate transfer rule to seek an opportunity to play immediately at a different school, but changed his mind. Many have speculated that Barker’s back injury is more severe than was made public, which may have played a role in his decision, as well. Regardless, we wish Drew the best of luck in his future endeavors. Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat!
