Ryan Harrow

Is he back to being a player that maybe can get drafted??

Before the season started he was a lottery pick on numerous sites, then he went MIA and dropped from every mock draft, but since his returns he's been Kentucky's best player hands down and has shown he can shoot just as well as he can drive the ball to the basket.

The only thing that scares me about Harrow is his small frame, dude is skinny as ish....but he is quick and can handle the ball.

I'm not too worried about his

I'm not too worried about his frame because his build is similar to Rondo/Jennings. The thing I would be concerned about is his mind set and mentality towards being a leader of a team. Me personally I would take a chance on him mid to late first round given his talent and hoping he puts it together or if the team has the right coach, but He hasn't shown me that he has leadership ability.

Ryan is one of the most

Ryan is one of the most intriguing prospects out there. He got off to a rocky start, but seems to be coming along, as you said.

His build is a bit of a concern because he looks very small compared to college athletes, much less NBA ones.

However, I think he can and will get drafted. And I'll make a big statement right now: if his play continues to trend upward, he will be a 1st rd pick in this upcoming draft. He's got the talent, speed, and ball handling to match any guard coming out. He has to work on his shooting, but it's coming along game by game. Ryan's always been a hard worker, he just didn't take the game as seriously as he should for the leader of a national powerhouse like Kentucky. He now is learning to be a leader, watch film (something he always disliked), eat right, and put in even more extra work.

Coach Cal always raved about Brandon Knight's learning curve, but I think Ryan also has picked things up pretty quickly although he took a few bumps while getting there. Playing at Kentucky under Cal will only help him improve his NBA readiness.

And I don't believe that he should be scared of losing his spot to the Harrisons because they are high school kids who aren't ready for college basketball. Ryan will put the to shame any day of the week. The player that I do needs to come back another year is Willey Cauley-Stein-- not because he doesn't have the talent or athleticism, but because he hasn't played the game of basketball long enough. Coming back another year will only help him learn more while playing instead of riding the pine on an NBA team.

That's not true. Ryan Harrow

That's not true. Ryan Harrow is a grown man; the Harrison's are still growing up. You may not believe me now, but we'll see.

He's been playing better

He's been playing better recently. I think he was feeling pressure knowing that the Harrison Twins are coming next year. I look forward to seeing the UK game tonight to see how he plays.

4 Year Player

No way he gets drafted first round if he came out this season. He needs to stay all four years.

Problem is that he will get lost in the shuffle next season. He has already burned his red shirt season sitting out after his NC State transfer. He will be a backup next season. I really feel bad for him and his situation.

He needs to graduate after next year, play behind the Harrison twins and use that Graduate transfer rule to his advantage and go to a team that needs a point for his final season and a place where he can be "the man."

Answer this: why would

Answer this: why would Calipari play the Harrison's who are always pouting and complaining and are only freshman over a senior in Ryan Harrow who is playing well, and has more experience?

What made Teague valuable at

What made Teague valuable at UK? His defense. His offense was meh at best. The Harrison Twins are not known as defenders and aren't going to light it up on the offensive side of the ball at from the start (well Aaron at least). Ryan has more experience than both of them. Ryan is a very good college scorer, and is coming a long in other facets of the came. No way he's going to be relegated to 2nd string.

Lmao this dude thinks Harrow

Lmao this dude thinks Harrow will play over Harrison? If Harrow comes back next year (which he should) he'll be a back up and hopefully return to starting lineup in his senior year but the way Cal recruits this may be his only year to prove his worth as a starting PG.

I wouldn't be shocked if

I wouldn't be shocked if Harrow started, but close to mid season I think Harrison will likely win it over.

You must have forgot that

You must have forgot that Harrow was near the top of his class, which heralded Brandon Knight and Kyrie Irving. Harrow is no slouch here.

Who cares where Harrow was

Who cares where Harrow was rated as a HS senior? Doesn't mean he's in the same league as Harrison.

So what? Josh mcRoberts was

So what? Josh mcRoberts was #1 in his class, Avery Bradley was ranked higher than Blake Griffin and look who had the bigger impact

Because at the high school

Because at the high school level big men aren't fully developed and lack the post skills. Its very difficult to read big men at the high school level because they tower and over power people. Guards are more accessible and have to work and show off their skills more.

People are looking at Ryan Harrow from an NBA prospect instead of as a college player who can go toe to toe with anyone. Look at how he played against Louisville. John Wall and Derrick Rose couldn't even do that--John Wall and Derrick Rose.
