Harrow to "Word of God" Highly Unlikely

As you probably have heard, there have been rumors swirling around message boards and blogs lately that NC State commit, Ryan Harrow, will be transferring from his home school Walton High (Marietta, GA) to Raleigh's Word of God Christian Academy.

It is extremely common for schools to recruit top prospects during their sophomore or junior summers in order to beef up their rosters and build their reputation. (see Oak Hill). Ever since Ryan started to rise in the rankings and the buzz around him started to grow, these schools began calling more frequently. Mountain State Academy, Montrose Christian both inquired, and now rumor is that Word of God is making a push. So is Ryan Harrow to Word of God a done deal as some think, or will he return to Walton for his senior season?

According to someone very close to the situation in the Harrow camp, "While several private schools are approaching, the answer is currently NO. He will stay at Walton for his senior season." Being close to his family and friends for his senior season is important for Ryan, and unless something changes, he will be back in Atlanta for one more year.

Injury Update: Ryan's feet have healed and he has been cleared to go full speed, however he must continue to wear orthotics and ankle braces. (we have been given permission to update you on Ryan's injury status)

    selfishly, I would have loved to have Mr. Harrow playing in Raleigh, but maybe GA is the best place for him

    Guy is gonna take State to the NEXT LEVEL...

    As mad as I am about some of CJ Leslie's comments in response to State, I hope we get him now, cuz if we do that would be the sickest little-big combo in the NCAA.

    It's good to hear Ryan's feet are better. Just hope he doesn't rush it and come back to soon.

    Harrow and Leslie would be awesome, and I hope CJ is still considering coming to state.

    WPH, How is Scott doing with his knee injury?

    ^peeaay, AGREED!!!

    Call me a dinosaur if you will, but the subject of this thread is something that irks the living pooh out of me to no end!!! The fact that AAU is a racket and is basically imperative these days, and then to recruit a kid from one HS to play for another, it's already been allowed to go BEYOND WAY TOO FAR.

    Besides, I've already commented on this sort of thing at length, but on another blog site, so I'll spare you most of the details on here.

    But why not just let the kid be a kid, and enjoy having his close friends and family close by, at home, while he still can, and while he indeed is still, just a kid???

    Lord help me I do love it so, but there are times when the game of BB takes a distant back seat in the big picture.

    Harrow is now the #28 player in the country (#8 PG) according to scout.

    Kudos to Ryan Harrow...he is a mature and level-headed young man with excellent character. This decision affirms that he has his head screwed on correctly.

    Stay close to family and friends and enjoy your senior season.

    This young man is going to be a GREAT addition to the Wolfpack team next season.

    I can't imagine 7 pg's being better than RH. If there is then there is some serious pg talent in this class.

    "I can't imagine 7 pg's being better than RH."

    It's been said, but a lot of that has to do with size. He's probably got the skills and the hops to match most of those ranked above him, he's just a little smaller than some. Which is fine by me, I'd gladly take a smaller guy with his skill, devotion, and iq over bigger PGs any day. And he's probably still got a little bit of growing to do.

    I'm guessing that Harrow isn't done yet-nor or the others-and the final word on rankings can and will change within the eight to nine months.

    It really doesn't matter though; if Harrow brings us W's, I don't care who thinks they're better, how many stars they have or what number they have in rankings.

    It's funny; so much these days seems to come down to height and yet that never stopped Spud Web or any of the others that would be considered grossly undersized. And then you look at Bobby Hurley or even our own-Chris Corchiani-and drool at the thought of someone like that manning the court.

    Ryan Harrow has already shown what he can do albeit maybe against competition that isn't quite the caliber that he will see on the collegiate level but-he's on the right track. Also, 6'0 to 6'1" isn't so bad. Imagine what happens when he gains some upper body strength-then the sky is truly the limit as (upper body strength) believe it or not is where even more athleticism can be added.

    I have a feeling that we just might be onto something special.

    I hope Harrow's "lack of size" keeps him here for 4 years, before he declares for the NBA draft.
