UK hoops to get
NC State transfer

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Former North Carolina State point guard Ryan Harrow says he’s transferring to Kentucky.
Harrow announced his decision on Twitter, saying “I am a Kentucky Wildcat!”
His departure from N.C. State last month was described as a mutual decision made by the guard and new coach Mark Gottfried, who was hired in April after Sidney Lowe stepped down.
Harrow averaged 9.3 points in 29 games as a freshman, ranking seventh in the ACC with an assist-to-turnover ratio of 1.9. He will sit out this season and will have three years of eligibility starting in 2012-13.
He joins a Kentucky program that recently lost one-and-done freshmen John Wall and Brandon Knight to the NBA and brings in Marquis Teague, one of the nation’s highest-rated high school point guards.
