Remember Blake Barnett? He was a 5-star QB out of California that originally went to Alabama, redshirted his first year, went viral for his cannon of an arm, got engaged to a smoking hot professional surfer, began the 2016 season as Bama’s starter and played 2 series against USC before Jalen Hurts came in and you know the rest from there.
Then we basically never heard from him again. It turns out, he transferred to Arizona State, avoided sitting out a year, and is now the backup quarterback for the Sun Devils.
Barnett went kind of viral last summer before the season after he got engaged to surfer Maddie Peterson. Now, this week, the quietly announced that they got married back in August by dropping these photos on Instagram.
[Update: they now have a son.]
Now he can focus on living up to those 5-star expectations.
