PG Ryan Harrow returns to Kentucky after absence

By Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Ryan Harrow was expected to be the next star point guard at Kentucky, following in the footsteps of John Wall, Brandon Knight and Marquis Teague. But the North Carolina State transfer has only played 10 minutes so far this season.

At first, it was announced that Harrow was dealing with flu-like symptoms. Then last week, he returned home to deal with family issues.

On Sunday, Harrow returned to the Wildcats, participating in practice.

“I'm feeling much better, and it felt really good to get back on the practice court with the guys today,” Harrow said in a statement. “Unfortunately, when I started feeling better, I had an issue to tend to with my family over the holiday break. Everything is good with that now.”

Harrow, a 6-foot-2 sophomore out of Georgia, has the ability to take Kentucky to the next level. Because the Wildcats have so many weapons, they have had the pieces to survive without Harrow -- aside from the loss to Duke in the first week of the season. Archie Goodwin has been playing at the point, and he had nine assists in Friday's win over LIU Brooklyn. But it's certainly no secret that Goodwin is far better on the wing as a scorer. Harrow's return enables everyone to play their natural positions.

Harrow is extremely athletic and has a world of potential. If he is focused and on the floor, Kentucky is simply a better team.
