Harrow was supposed to be one of the key components of a recruiting class that would return N.C. State to the top of the ACC. Things didn’t go as planned, resulting in a losing season and the firing of head coach Sidney Lowe. Harrow announced on April 26 that he planned to transfer from N.C. State, and the rumblings out of Raleigh immediately indicated that he liked John Calipari’s dribble-drive offense. Those predictions came true on May 25, when Harrow announced that he would be transferring to Kentucky. One of the most highly touted high school point guards a year ago, Harrow will not be eligible to play for the Cats until the 2012-13 season. That might be a good thing. Most analysts see incoming point guard Marquis Teague as a one-and-done, and his departure would leave UK in need of a new floor leader. The 2012 recruiting class isn’t deep at the position, and Rodney Purvis and L.J. Rose were the only real options on UK’s radar. Harrow will ensure a veteran presence on the 2012-13 squad, with Darius Miller, Eloy Vargas, Terrence Jones, Doron Lamb, Anthony Davis, Marquis Teague and Michael Gilchrist all projected to be gone after this coming season.
