Andy ‘Ridin’ With The Glock’ner of SI.com got really, really bored and wrote about the 10 biggest impact transfers going into next college basketball season. Of course, Ryan Harrow and Julius Mays made the list. Because they’re going to Kentucky and Kentucky is awesome.
Ryan Harrow and Julius Mays, Kentucky
Once again, the Wildcats reeled in a massive freshman class, headlined by defensive force Nerlens Noel, but the ultimate success of the Cats in John Calipari’s dribble drive attack may depend on Harrow (N.C. State) and Mays (Wright State) providing lead guard competence and a welcome dose of shooting. In last season’s media guide, Calipari said of Harrow: “Ryan should be in the best position of any point guard I have ever coached because he’s got a year to be tutored without the pressure of having to play.” If that’s true, the Cats have a legit chance to repeat as national champs.
Two other names on the list, Mark Lyons and Alex Oriakhi, were at one time considering Kentucky and are also expected to have a huge impact.
