2014 Army All-American game is wrapping up overon NBC. This years collection of the best high school senior football players from across the country now look towards their college careers. Two of those guys who can’t wait for their careers to begin come from our beloved state. Kentucky signee, future quarterback Drew Barker of Highlands and undeclared defensive tackle Matt Elam from John Hardin.
Drew Barker did not start today’s game but certainly looked the best of all the QB’s when called upon. After entering the game in the 2nd quarter, Barker led his West squad to two touchdowns on his first two drives. Ending the half 4/4, 54 yards and a 14-0 lead. He set up the touchdowns with drives where he looked very comfortable, confident and showed he can sling it.
Barker re-entered the game for the 4th quarter where he was for the most part quiet. Finishing the Army All-American game with those 54 yards passing on 4/6 completions.
With the solid play of Barker, guys surrounding him caught on. 2015 four-star tight end C.J. Conrad told Justin Rowland(RowlandRIVALS) of Rivals.com during the game that the play of Barker is “one reason he wants to visit Kentucky.”
As for Matt Elam who was supposed to announce his college choice but decided this morning to push his commitment back. He played well. Not over controlling but showed his skill set and use of size. Elam will now decide on National Signing Day between Kentucky and Alabama.
