"Poor Ryan Harrow. First, the former five-star prospect saw the coach who recruited him to NC State fired after his freshman season. Then, after sitting during Kentucky's 2011-12 title run, Harrow was handed the keys to the most exotic metaphorical automobile college hoops has to offer -- the John Calipari point guard position -- only to find out he didn't have what it takes. Calipari pushed and prodded, but Harrow struggled for most of the early part of the season. His father suffered a stroke early in the year, which eventually prompted this transfer, but his chances of ever turning things around at UK were nonexistent by the end of the season. The good news? He could be the most talented (or at least most feted) get in the history of Georgia State basketball. Ron Hunter is a great coach, Harrow will get a chance to take a starring role, and his dad will get to come to the games. It isn't the UK-to-NBA fast track, but it's something like a happy ending."
