Doug Robertson of the Atlanta Journal published an article this morning shedding light on more of the details of Ryan Harrow’s transfer to Georgia State. According to Robertson, Harrow is going to petition the NCAA for the right to play in the 2013-2014 season, instead of having to sit out another year due to the transfer.
Robertson also says that Harrow is transferring because his father suffered a stroke before the 2012 basketball season and is still in poor health. If the NCAA grants Harrow permission to play due to this hardship, he would still have 2 years of eligibility remaining.
“I really need to be home with him to be closer to him to make sure he’s taken care of,” Harrow said. Harrow’s father is a big basketball fan and the move would allow him the chance to see Ryan play closer to home.
Harrow had nothing but positive things to say about his time at Kentucky. “I got better there,” he said. “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 here with him.”
