UK Football Preview: Quarterbacks

08/04/2016 07:30 PM

We continue our position previews by highlighting the most important piece of Kentucky’s offense, the quarterback. Since Mark Stoops took over in 2013, Kentucky hasn’t developed a consistent, SEC-caliber quarterback. Patrick Towles was supposed to be the guy, but inconsistent play down the stretch of last season plagued the offense. The coaching staff is extremely confident in Drew Barker to lead the offense to new heights this season under Eddie Gran and Darin Hinshaw, but they are not afraid to call on Barker’s backup, Stephen Johnson, if he doesn’t perform.
