Due to what his father called a "scheduling snafu," Kentucky sophomore quarterback Patrick Towles will not go to San Diego to work with quarterback guru George Whitfield Jr. during spring break next week. Instead, he'll go to San Diego May 19-30 after UK's spring semester ends.
Whitfield has worked with Andrew Luck and Cam Newton, both former No. 1 picks in the NFL draft. He’s been working with Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, another potential No. 1 pick, recently. Towles first met Whitfield at an Elite 11 camp in Los Angeles when he was playing for Fort Thomas Highlands.
"There will be other college quarterbacks there then, too," said Terry Towles, Patrick's father. "This way he can also go for almost two weeks instead of just one."
Towles has already been working out on his own with Donnie Walker, who has worked with current California offensive coordinator Tony Franklin. Walker conducts clinics in the same offense that UK offensive coordinator Neal Brown played in and now uses with his own tweaks.
Since he's not going to California, Towles will spend even more time with Walker preparing for the start of UK's spring practice later this month.
