2014 QB Barker lands another offer

For 2014 quarterback Drew Barker of Burlington (Ky.) Conner, the offers keep coming.
The Purdue Boilermakers on Monday became the fourth program to pull the trigger with the 6-feet-3, 208-pounder, joining Cincinnati, Illinois and Louisville.
"I camped at Purdue [on Monday] and I thought I performed well," Barker told "We didn't throw that long, and the camp wasn't that long. But I did well. We talked before the camp and they told me about the school, and the academics. All the coaches were nice, and they all came up to me. I really liked that."
Barker, who said he has a good relationship with Purdue QBs coach Gary Nord, enjoyed the trip.
"It seems like a real family atmosphere there," he said.
At this stage, no program stands out yet.
"It's way too early for that," Barker said. "I'm still weighing all my options, and going to camps. The ideal time to make a decision would probably be this time next year, right before my senior year."
In 2011, Barker threw for 1,300-plus yards with seven touchdowns and four interceptions for his 7-6 squad. Additionally, he rushed for more than 1,500 yards. Even though he can run, the strong-armed Barker is being recruited as a pro-style quarterback.
"When I go to these camps, they all list me as pro-style because I can do the footwork and work from under center," Barker said. "But at my school, I can run, too. I can do both."
Next up for Barker, he will camp at Northwestern on Tuesday. Then, he visits Vanderbilt on Saturday and Sunday.
