Overview:

Hartline was a big disappointment for Wildcat fans but he really turned it around his senior year. He matured as a QB and improved his play considerably. However, hold off on calling him a sleeper. He still has a lot of work to do to improve his game and any shot he had of getting drafted pretty much went away when he got arrested for public intoxication and disorderly conduct before Kentucky’s bowl game. Very stupid move on his part.
