Marietta, Ga. (N.C. State)
Preview Podcast: Publisher Brett Dawson, Recruiting Editor Steve Jones and Staff Writers T.J. Walker and Aaron Smith break down their expectations of Ryan Harrow.
Rewind: Harrow sat out last season after transferring from North Carolina State, where he averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists per game as a freshman in 2010-11. Harrow started 10 of the Wolfpack's final 15 games. He spent last season practicing with the Wildcats.
Fast Forward: After a season of seasoning in practice, Harrow's expected to be Kentucky's starting point guard in 2012-13. He'll be a different sort of John Calipari point guard, smaller and not as physical as his NBA-bound predecessors. But Harrow also will be the first point guard at Kentucky with a year of experience running the Calipari system.
John Calipari says: "Ryan may be a little bit more of a shooter like Brandon (Knight) was. And he's not the physical, tough bulldog that Marquis Teague was, but he shoots it better. The way we play, he's gotten tougher but he's going to have to continue. He's going to have to get stronger. But that's why he came here."
