Ex-Minnesota junior WR A.J. Barker will play at Houston next season.

Barker made a notable exit from Minnesota, citing major disagreements with head coach Jerry Kill. Houston head coach Tony Levine was a former Minnesota walk-on himself, so the two have something in common. Barker finished the season sidelined due to an injury, and was not happy with how he was treated during that time.
