Will Harrellson take his talents to south beach? Josh Harrellson attended Southwestern Illinois from 2007-2008 before going to Kentucky from 2008-2011. He was named to the SEC All-Tournament Team in 2011. During the 2011 NBA Draft he was selected 45th overall during the second round by the New Orleans Hornets.
