Kentucky Basketball Recruiting: Transfer Ryan Harrow Picks Wildcats

Todd HawkinsCorrespondent IMay 26, 2011

According to Sporting News, North Carolina State transfer Ryan Harrow tweeted "I am a Kentucky Wildcat!" on Wednesday night, essentially becoming the first member of Calipari's 2012 class. 

Assuming Marquis Teague is a one-and-done, Harrow will be yet another highly touted five-star point guard to lead the Cats.  He will have to sit out the 2011-12 season per NCAA rules and will be eligible at the start of 2012-13.

According to Rivals, the 6'0", 160-pound Harrow ranked 19th in the 2010 high school class before signing with former Wolfpack head coach Sidney Lowe. As a freshman at N.C. State last season, Harrow averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists in 29 games (started 10).

Calipari has quickly turned Kentucky into a safe haven for talented point guards looking to best prepare themselves for the next level. Teague could become his fifth consecutive point guard to take his game to the NBA after only one year of college ball.

Harrow chose the Cats over Louisville, Georgia and Texas.
