Much like the quarterback for the Cowboys, the quarterback for Alabama or the star for the Lakers, the most scrutinized player in college basketball tends to be the point guard for John Calipari at Kentucky.
It will be no different this year for Andrew Harrison.
Harrison comes into Lexington as the top-ranked point guard in the class of 2013 and the No. 5 overall player. Most importantly, he will be handed the keys to the car immediately, as the player expected to make Kentucky's offense sing.
Coupled with the fact that he plays for John Calipari, Harrison's play will be a direct link to how people view Calipari's recruiting and coaching style. If Harrison is able to come in, play well and help lead Kentucky to a Final Four, those out there who say Calipari's style won't carry over can't talk for another year.
If Harrison fails like Ryan Harrow did last season, however, it will be a long offseason for both the point guard and the head coach.
The most pressure for Harrison might actually come from his own teammates, who expect him to set them up for scoring chances. Playing with a copious amount of talent, it will be up to Harrison to keep everyone happy with shot attempts.
