Kentucky gains extra scholarship through transfer by Ryan Harrow

iR  
UPDATE:   

Kentucky point guard Ryan Harrow is transferring to Georgia State.  As a result, Kentucky and Head Coach John Calapari, will gain an extra scholarship to give out.  

ANALYSIS:

Harrow, a sophomore, did not quite live up to expectations in Lexington, and with highly-regarded recruits Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison committed to the Wildcats, his playing time was likely going to diminish. Kentucky, on the other hand, frees up another scholarship which seemingly would go to 6'1" SG Dominique Hawkins from Madison Central (KY) who Calapari is interested in.  Hawkins was just named “Mr. Basketball” for the State of Kentucky.   If current Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel declares for the NBA draft as is expected, there will also be a spot on Kentucky’s roster for the nation’s top prospect in the class of 2013 Andrew Wiggins from Huntington Prep (VA) who Calapari has been courting recently. Kentucky right now by far and away has the #1 recruiting class in the country for next year as several NBA execs suggested that at least five of the incoming recruits are likely NBA 1st round picks.   If Kentucky adds either Wiggins or Hawkins (or both), this class will likely go down as the best recruiting class ever in college basketball history.
