Andre Woodson and Mike Hartline were not five-star recruits. They were not even four-star recruits.
Neither was Randall Cobb, now a NFL all-pro receiver who played some quarterback for Brooks.
However, what they all did for Kentucky and coach Rich Brooks was make plays to win games.
Brooks said UK’s current coach needs a quarterback to do the same thing — and hopes that Drew Barker is able to do that this season.
“The one shortcoming has been that the quarterbacks, highly touted, that he’s recruited haven’t turned out to be the four-star recruits that they were,” Brooks said.
“Fortunately we were able to have people at that quarterback position when I was here that made plays and played above their stars. So, I just think that’s the last piece of the puzzle right now.”
