Harrow Steps Up His Game On Defense

You'll be hard-pressed to find any recruiting analyst or coach criticizing Ryan Harrow's offensive ability. On the other hand, people have brought up concerns of his size and how it might affect him on the defensive side of the ball. Apparently Ryan stepped up the effort on defense yesterday at the Adidas Take 5ive, and it caught the eye of Jerry Meyer of Rivals:

"Harrow's slight frame is still a concern defensively is one on one isolation situations, but we are beginning to like his potential for being a pesky defender. He has quick hands and instinct and appears to be making more of a concerted effort on that side of the ball. Offensively, there really isn't much of a question concerning his ability. His elusiveness with the ball makes up for a lack of strength, and his athleticism and body control make him a high level playmaker."

    If this kid brings it on the defensive end of the court like we know he can on the offensive end, he will truly blow up! It is good to see a kid work on what others have pointed out as weaknesses. This is truly going to be an amazing Wolfpacker!

    I'm not real concerned about his size. I believe he’ll fill out some and grow a little his high school senior year and then some more in his collegiate play. He appears to be a kid that really wants to succeed on every level; if there is something that he needs to work on, he’ll work on it. I get the sense that he’s a high character kid which is important. I’m not saying I wouldn’t mind a little of that cocksure wolf strut but I believe he has that too. It’s only a matter of time before that allusive fifth star is his but in my mind-if he doesn’t have it now (as O’Brien has said) he’ll have it when he leaves NC State. I’m excited!
