Kentucky confirmed Sunday that sophomore point guard Ryan Harrow intends to leave the program and transfer to Georgia State.

One of the factors cited in opting to transfer was to be closer to his home in Marietta, Ga., and his father, who suffered a stroke prior to the 2012-13 season.

"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," UK head coach John 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."

Harrow will be playing for his third college program. He transferred to UK from North Carolina State prior to the 2011-12 season and redshirted as the Wildcats went on to win the national championship.

According to a statement Harrow made in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, he intends to petition the NCAA for a waiver to play immediately due to his father's health situation.

Harrow played in 29 games this season, starting 24 while averaging 9.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists. He missed four games in November when he briefly left Lexington to deal with what was described as personal/family issues.

He was expected to be relegated to a reserve role next season with UK bringing in the nation's top point guard prospect, Andrew Harrison, from Texas.
