Ryan Harrow is transferring out of Kentucky, according to Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com. With Aaron and Andrew Harrison coming in, and with poorly Harrow played this past season, the writing was on the wall. This isn’t a surprising move.
Harrow is headed for Georgia State, and according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, he’ll be applying for a waiver with the NCAA to play immediately. His father is sick and apparently had a stroke before the 2012 season. From the AJC:
“I really need to be home with him to be closer to him to make sure he’s taken care of,” Harrow said. He said his father is a basketball fan who can’t travel to watch him play. Being in Atlanta would enable Harrow to make sure his father is cared for, and would give his father a few chances to watch his son play.
Harrow just finished up his sophomore season. If he gets the waiver, he’ll have two years of eligibility remaining. If not, he’ll have to sit out a season and will only have one year left. He transferred from NC State to Kentucky and redshirted the 2011-2012 season, and athletes only have five years to use all four seasons of eligibility.
