INDIANAPOLIS (WDRB) -- What has been often speculated has come to pass -- point guard Ryan Harrow is leaving the University of Kentucky.
Harrow will transfer to Georgia State, according to a report in this morning's Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The story says Harrow is making the move to be closer to his father, who suffered a stroke before last season.
"I really need to be home with him to be closer to him to make sure he's taken care of," Harrow said.
UK coach John Calipari was non-committal on Harrow's return to the team after the Wildcats finished their season with a loss to Robert Morris in the NIT.
Harrow told the newspaper he will petition the NCAA to be able to play immediately next season, and that he leaves UK with positive feelings about the school and the program.
"I got better there," Harrow told the newspaper. "I built some relationships there. I know next year we would have been really good. It was just real important for me to be with my dad. With him being sick like this, I needed to be there with him."
