Kentucky coach John Calipari also has big expectations for sophomore point guard Ryan Harrow, who transferred from North Carolina State to UK last year and had to sit out the championship season. Associate athletics director of basketball operations Chris Woolard said at the Ohio UK Convention that Harrow “is different” from other Calipari point guards but that the UK coach has had success with different type point guards.
“He’s not as big as some point guards Cal has had, but he’s probably quicker, probably shoots better than most and he’s really athletic,” Woolard said. “What a guy has to do under Cal is learn the system. The great thing last year was that Ryan got to practice with the team every day and that really helped in his learning transition and fitting in on the team.”
Woolard said Wright State transfer Julius Mays, a fifth-year senior who is eligible immediately, can give “backup minutes” at point guard as well as shooting guard.
“You might see Archie Goodwin play some at point guard,” Woolard said. “Jarrod Polson has had a really good summer and been very solid. He could help. I think we will be fine at point guard. Ryan is a true point guard and we have others that can help handle the position as needed.”
