Kentucky quarterback Drew Barker announced via Twitter Tuesday night that he intends to transfer to another school for his graduate season. Southern Miss but was injured following a hit on the first possession of the second half, which eventually ended his season two games later.

"Football has taken me places that I have never dreamed of and I'm excited to see where it takes me next!" Barker (6'3/225) arrived on campus with much promise as a four-star recruit back in 2014, but his career was knocked sideways by a season-ending back injury sustained in September of 2016. That same school year, Barker was involved in a bar fight in Richmond and was later punched in the side of the head by an Eastern Kentucky University football player at an EKU dorm - an incident captured on video.

The junior quarterback will be eligible to play immediately next season. Ultimately, Wilson and the return of Gunnar Hoak, Danny Clark, and Walker Wood make it a crowded competition for the quarterback to risk not playing in his final season.

In announcing his transfer Barker wrote, "One of the greatest accomplishments of my life was receiving my degree from the University of Kentucky".

Junior-college transfer Terry Wilson signed with the Wildcats in December and has three seasons of eligibility remaining.

"The kid went through a major injury, left football for a year".

Now Barker will be looking for another school where he can do "big things" his final season. Barker's tweet did not indicate what school he would pick or when he would do it.

Kentucky fans should wish him well. SEC football isn't personal. The product of Conner High School threw for almost 300 yards and added four touchdowns in the first half alone vs. He never refused an interview request from me at UK.

Despite the off the field issues, Barker was still believed to be the guy to lead the Wildcats offense.
