Harrow Schedules NC State Visit

2010 Marietta (GA) Walton junior point guard Ryan Harrow will be back on the road this weekend as he's scheduled to take an unofficial visit to NC State.

Marietta (GA) Walton junior point guard Ryan Harrow will be back on the road this weekend as he's scheduled to take an unofficial visit to NC State.

"I have a visit on Sunday to NC State," said Harrow. "We are going up to NC State, and we may stay the night. My mom set up this meeting with coach Lowe because she hasn't got to meet him yet."

Harrow has been very busy over the past few months. He began by playing on the AAU circuit with the Lou Will Elite 16-under team, and he also attended the Chris Paul Elite Skills Camp at Wake Forest. After team camp at UT-Chattanooga and NC State's Elite Camp, Harrow attended Clemson's team camp.

"I played good at Clemson," he said. "In our first game, I scored 50 points. The coaches said they are going to start recruiting me, but I thought they would do more than start recruiting me. I think maybe they want to watch me a little more and recruit me some more before offering."

Harrow secured offers from NC State and UT-Chattanooga after camping at both schools. On June 15, coaches could start calling rising juniors and he picked up another offer shortly afterwards while also drawing heavy interest.

"Auburn offered me when they could start calling," said Harrow. "They said I was their top point guard priority in my class. I've also been getting calls from NC State, Wake Forest, Marquette, Florida, and I think Kentucky is supposed to be close to offering."

NC State emerged as Harrow's leader after he received an offer from the Wolfpack following the Elite Camp.

"I liked being with the coaches," Harrow previously told Pack Pride. "I like how they always talked about getting better. During all the drills and games, if you messed up they would just keep talking about getting better and learning from your mistakes. They kept telling us to keep playing hard.

"[The offer from NC State] was exciting because I've liked NC State for a while now. I actually wanted to go ahead and commit, but my mom is wanting me to wait a little bit. She wants me to wait and make sure I see what all schools will be on me first. I wanted to commit though."

This is a big weekend for Harrow and NC State. It appears that the Wolfpack have made him a priority, and he doesn't hide his affection for the ACC program. Is there a chance he could commit on the visit?

"I love coach Lowe," said Harrow. "He knows what it takes to make it to the league, and I know how much they want me there. I talked with them the day of the draft and they were saying they wanted us to come up and visit. That's why we're going on Sunday.

"If my visit goes well and my mom says it is okay, I think I'm going to give a commitment to NC State on Sunday."

Harrow is good friends with NC State 2009 target Lorenzo Brown. Brown, who also hails from Georgia, is one of the top prospects in the 2009 class, and Harrow thinks NC State is in good shape with his friend.

"From what I can tell, I think they want us to come in and play at NC State," said Harrow. "I think Lorenzo is down to NC State and Memphis with NC State on top."

As a sophomore at Concord (NC) Cannon School, Harrow was averaging 16 points and five assists, leading the team in both categories, when he left the team during towards the end of the season to transfer back to Marietta (GA) Walton where he could be with his mother following the death of his grandmother.

The rest of the summer Harrow will be attending various camps and tournaments. The 2010 prospect plans on going to the Nike All-American Camp and possibly Reebok U., and he will return to the hardwood with Lou Williams Elite in July.

Pack Pride will have more from Harrow following his visit to NC State so stay tuned!
