N.C. State point guard is transfering, and Georgia is on his list

Ryan Harrow, who was N.C. State’s fourth-leading scorer as a freshman this year, is transferring and will be taking a look at Georgia.

The Bulldogs badly need a point guard after next year, and Harrow would seem to fit. The 6-foot-1 product of Marietta’s Walton High School was the Gatorade player of the year in Georgia after the 2009-10 season.

Harrow averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists last year for the Wolfpack. He started 10 games and appeared in a total of 29.

Georgia wasn’t involved much with Harrow out of high school because he committed early to N.C. State. But he said Tuesday that the Bulldogs would be in the mix this time.

“I’m considering (Georgia). Yes sir,” Harrow said during a phone interview. “I haven’t really made any decisions on where I’m going to go yet, but Georgia is on my list.”

N.C. State fired head coach Sidney Lowe after the season and eventually replaced him with Mark Gottfried, the former Alabama head coach. Gottfried announced Harrow’s transfer on Tuesday, calling it a mutual decision, and saying Harrow would be released to any school outside the ACC. Per NCAA transfer rules, Harrow will have to sit out the 2011-12 season.

Harrow said he didn’t have a timetable yet, adding that he wants to set up a list of schools to visit.

“Me and my mom really have to talk about what fits me,” Harrow said. “But Georgia would be one of the schools on my list.”

Good news, and thank you for not using the too easy headline, "Georgia on his mind."

If he is a good enough player, why did the new coach allow him to leave? Is he homesick or is he a bit of a problem behind the scenes?

If he sits out a year, would he then be a Red Shirt Sophmore next year. Either way, that would be great news. Sould like he would be a great addition based on those stats. Plus, we don't really need him next year, but the year after, we certainly will.

Riley-

Many players sign for a coach, not necessarily a university. And many coaches grant a player release when they come on board. Just the way of things. We got Marcus Thornton the same way.
