Wideout Ammon Barker has come full circle as he prepares for tomorrow’s game against UCLA at the Rose Bowl.
In 2012, Barker made a verbal commitment to sign with UCLA. In November that year, he made his official visit. He stayed with the team in the hotel the night before the rivalry game against USC. He also was on the sideline for that game. After that, his commitment was considered to be a done deal.
But then the point recruiter accepted a coaching position at Washington. His departure, it turned out, meant the offer to Barker was rescinded.
Barker still had offers from several Mountain West schools. But after visiting Hawaii, Barker decided to become a Warrior.
His family said Barker has expressed no regrets about the turn of events. “He never looked back,” Bart Barker said of his son.
