On Sunday, UK confirmed that sophomore point guard Ryan Harrow has decided to transfer to Georgia State. His new school is near his home in Marietta, Ga., and his father, who suffered a stroke before the 2012-13 season. UK head coach John Calipari issued the following statement on Harrow's decision.

"Given the health of his dad, we fully support Ryan's decision to transfer to Georgia State to be closer to his family in Atlanta," Calipari said. "Ryan was a vital part of this year's team and an important player in practice during our 2011-12 national championship run. I want to thank Ryan for his efforts and hard work and wish him the best of luck at Georgia State. I know the Big Blue Nation will keep a close eye on him and wish him well as he continues his basketball career and his pursuit of a college degree."

In speaking with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Harrow said he has already applied for admission at Georgia State and will petition the NCAA for a waiver to play immediately due to the health of his father.

Harrow spent his first season of college at North Carolina State before transferring to UK before the 2011-12 season. He redshirted and practiced with the Wildcats as they made a run to the program's eighth national championship.

In 2012-13, Harrow played in 29 games, starting 24 and averaging 9.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists.
