The 6-foot-2, 170-pound sophomore point guard sat out last season after transferring from N.C. State, where he started seven of the final nine games – and 10 of the last 15 – in 2010-11. He averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists as a freshman with the Wolfpack. He averaged 31.4 points per game as a high school senior in Marietta, Ga.  Harrow was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Georgia. He was a Parade rated a top-10 point guard and consensus top-25 overall prospect nationally in the Class of 2012.

But I know that it has been a great line of point guards that have come before me.
