BEFORE THIS SEASON
Harrow took a long path to UK as he originally committed to North Carolina State as the #6 PG and 19th ranked player in the 2010 class, per rivals. Heralded as a shooter that could lead his team, Harrow struggled as a freshman at NC State, hitting just 22.2% of his three pointers and averaging 9.3 a game. After that campaign, he decided to transfer and landed at Kentucky. While sitting out a year, he battled with Marquis Teague daily in practice and the “Legend of Harrow” grew. Word came from practice that if he would have started last year, he could have competed for a starting spot. Whether that was true or not, huge expectations were there for Harrow to follow in the footsteps of John Wall, Brandon Knight, and Marquis Teague.
Perhaps a warning sign was triggered when Kentucky pursued troubled but talented transfer Mark Lyons shortly after Marquis Teague’s departure to the NBA. Lyons went to Arizona and this was Harrow’s team for better or worse.
