Who Likes Ryan Harrow? You, Me, Alan Cutler, Etc

Ryan Harrow has swag, if you hadn’t noticed from his twitpics

Since arriving on campus, several new players have gotten rave reviews regarding pickup basketball and training.  Some of those even showcased their skills at other outlets, like when Ryan Harrow and Marquis Teague took their talents to Adidas Nations.  Today, Alan Cutler dropped an article on Harrow and his adjustment to UK from NC State.

We recently read reviews are Harrow carving through defenders with his dribbles at Adidas Nations.  We saw the video of Harrow dunking that appeared on Twitter.  We listened to Jorts when he said, “I thought John Wall could jump. Just wait until you see this kid. Never seen anything like it.”  But we haven’t really heard Ryan’s side of the story…Until now.  Here are some good quotes from Ryan Harrow:

On NC State showing him love…

“I was only like 5 feet tall and they saw me in an open gym and they said, ‘You’re going to be something.’ That stuck in my head. Once I started to become a nationally ranked player, all these schools wanted me, but I felt like I needed to stay dedicated to them since they were the first to believe in me.”

On trying to bulk up from 145 at NCSU to 180 at UK…

“I feel like the game of basketball is still the same…Basketball is basketball. If you can produce you can produce. I felt like nobody was still able to guard me, but I felt like I wasn’t finishing my shot because I was getting knocked around. Guys are bigger and stronger and I need to make that adjustment.”

On why UK seemed the best place for his future…

“I know that with Coach Calipari, the teams are used to winning. ..That’s what he demands of his team and that’s what I want to be a part of. I want to be a part of a family, I want to be a part of a team that expects nothing else but winning and somewhere I can have fun. I felt like I could get all three of those things at Kentucky.”

    You do realize that Alan didn’t write this story right? It was written on Cal’s site.
