Barkley in Context

| No Comments

As with the whole of the offense, Matt Barkley's spring game is nearly impossible to judge fairly given the circumstances.  Statistically, the junior completed 22 of 42 passes for 212 yards, including two interceptions and no touchdowns.

He spent most of the day throwing outs, slants and fades to De'Von Flournoy, Markeith Ambles and Robbie Boyer.  In the fall, he expects to exploit the talents of Robert Woods, Kyle Prater and George Farmer.

Woods and Prater shared the recruiting crown as the best receiving prospect in the country coming out of high school.  Farmer can stake a claim to that same mythical title for this incoming class.

"You've got to deal with what you have and that's what we've been doing for the past year," Barkley said.  "I can't wait to have [Woods] and Kyle and George and Carswell was out.  I can't wait to have all those guys back."
