This is just breaking so I don't have an article/press release link yet, but it has been confirmed by a number of sources on Twitter that Ryan Harrow has asked for his release from NC State. The official NCSU basketball Twitter account calls is a "mutual decision:"
Wolfpack/Harrow reach mutual decision that Harrow will transfer to another institution.
Ryan will not be allowed to transfer anywhere in the ACC
Harrow: "The year off will help me improve in many ways and I think the decision is the best for me personally."
"We wish him well and will do anything we can to assist him in this process," said Gottfried, who added that he would release Harrow to any school except one in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
