Barkley was a star during his career at USC. He was a Heisman candidate and third on USC's career passing (755 completions) and total offense (9,013 yards) lists, behind Heisman winners Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart. Barkley was a five-star recruit out of Mater Dei High School [2009] and was named Second Team All-Pac-12 in 2011.

He was drafted in the 2013 NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles but failed to start in one game during his two years with the team. Looking ahead, Barkley is expected to serve as a solid backup for Tennessee's starting gunslinger Ryan Tannehill.
