No regrets for early enrollee Drew Barker

Drew Barker could have been going to prom with his friends Saturday night, but the Burlington, Ky. native made his debut in front of Big Blue Nation at Commonwealth Stadium instead.
As an early enrollee at UK, Barker got a head start to college and as a result is right in the mix for the starting quarterback position with the Cats. The 6-foot-3 gunslinger struggled with accuracy during the Blue/White game, completing only 7-19 passes. But more than 30,000 UK fans erupted when he completed a 30-yard touchdown pass to Demarcus Robinson in the fourth quarter.
After the game, Barker talked about his decision to enroll early, adjusting to college football, the QB battle, and whether or not he was nervous during the debut.
