Kentucky Ryan Harrow is seeking a transfer to Georgia State and will also request a waiver from the NCAA to play immediately at the soon-to-be Sun Belt school. The waiver is due to Harrow wanted to be closer to his father who suffered a stroke before the start of last season and remains in poor health.

I really need to be home with him to be closer to him to make sure he's taken care of...I got better there (Kentucky). I built some relationships there. I know next year we would have been really good. It was just real important for me to be with my dad. With him being sick like this, I needed to be there with him. via The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Harrow, who averaged 10 points and nearly 3 assists per game last year, has already transferred once from North Carolina State where he played in the 2010-11 season. He was a five star recruit at Walton High School in Marietta, Georgia.

Kenctucky has one of the best recruiting classes ever coming in next year and Harrow likely would've seen his playing time drop as Andrew Harrison is the likely starting point guard.

Georgia State is coming off a 15-16 season and will only be losing one senior from last year's squad. The Panthers will become an official Sun Belt Conference member on July 1.
