Georgia State and Ron Hunter's transition to the Sun Belt Conference just got a little easier as former Kentucky and North Carolina State point guard Ryan Harrow has been cleared to play immediately by the NCAA. The Marietta, Georgia native filed a hardship waiver with the NCAA to be closer to his father, who is in poor health after a stroke a year ago.
Harrow, a former five star recruit, posted 10 points and nearly 3 assists for John Caliapari's Wildcats last year. He will have two years of eligibility left for the Panthers.
Georgia State will begin their first year in the Sun Belt Conference after a 15-16 year in their last year in the Colonial Athletic Association. The Panthers will return a solid squad featuring reigning CAA Rookie of Year RJ Hunter who averaged 17 points and 5 rebounds per game a year ago.
The Sun Belt all of sudden has two of the best point guards in the nation with Harrow and Louisiana's Elfrid Payton.
