Conner High School star quarterback Drew Barker is still more than a year away from suiting up for the University of Kentucky, but his impact has already been felt as he’s become one of the star recruiters for the program.

Barker, who just returned from the Nike Elite 11 camp in Oregon, took some time to talk with KSTV today about playing with the best players in the country, as well as his continued recruiting efforts. Plus, the UK basketball fan gives his take on the 2010 vs. 2012 matchup and his favorite Wildcats of all time.
