Harrow set to decide on Friday

With the lack of available point guards in the 2012 class, Ryan Harrow's recruitment took off quite a bit. The N.C. State transfer and Georgia native is set to decide this week.

Ryan Harrow has finished taking his college trips. Next up is making his second college choice.

As a freshman at North Carolina State last season, Harrow averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists per game. But with a staff change the former five-star guard is back on the market.

After announcing his decision to leave N.C. State, Harrow spent the past few weeks embarking on a visit-fest that included trips to Georgia, Louisville, Kentucky and Texas. Originally he was set to visit Saint John's as well, but he canceled the trip and dropped them from his list.

"I'm done with all of my trips and I feel like every school has something good to offer," Harrow said. "I have a big decision to make and I have to figure out what is best for me."

"I'm going to make a decision by Friday," he added. "Every trip had something to offer. The biggest trip that surprised me was Texas. I didn't know it was such a nice area."

Harrow, who played his high school ball at Marietta (Ga.) Walton, said he's looking for a place that he can deveop.

"I just want to be somewhere where I'm going to get better," he said. "I didn't have any problems at State, I just felt like it wasn't the right place for me."

Harrow broke down the four schools involved and mentioned what he liked most about each school.

Louisville: "I like the facilities and I definitely liked coach [Rick] Pitino and the rest of the staff."

Kentucky: "The facilities are nice. I definitely like the coaching staff and they have the practice gym there and in the off-season I can get better."

Georgia: "I like their coaching staff and I like the atmosphere out there and it's close to home."

Texas: "Texas is a real nice area. The facilities are nice and me and coach Barnes really had a connection. He reminded me of my high school coach."

Coming out of high school Harrow was ranked No. 25 overall and No. 8 at the point guard spot.
