Harrison Twins’ Father Says Report of Their Leaders Wrong

twins

The father of the 2013 dynamic duo, the Harrison Twins, says that reports of a split in the family on the recruitment are false. Previously, Adam Zagoria’s flowing locks said that a “source” told him that the Twins were leaning Kentucky, but were holding out because their father wanted them at Maryland. The father didn’t like the story and told a Maryland site Zagoria is wrong:

“That’s just [the reporter of the story] doing his thing. I’d talked to him one time a few months ago and he re-worded what I said and took it all out of context in his article, so I don’t talk to him anymore. Maybe that’s why he had to write something. He makes up things and runs with them for attention,” Harrison said

“Here’s the thing. He can say it’s an unnamed source, but I promise you there’s no sources with us. Unless you’re me, my wife, Aaron or Andrew, or their grandparents, you’re not going to have anything to say because no one else knows about our confidential discussions. And my wife and our parents haven’t talked to anyone about it. I changed the kids’ numbers, so the two coaches have their number and no one else calls,” he said.

Harrison, who’s maintained throughout the recruitment that his sons will sign with whichever school they favor, reiterated he’s not in any way trying to lead his sons in either direction. “Aaron and Andrew haven’t made a decision, and I want whatever they want for themselves,” Harrison Sr. said. “Whatever they want is what I want.”

As always, two lessons. First, be careful of listening to Adam Zagoria….second, be VERY careful about google imaging the phrase “Harrison Twins.”

    Now, that’s funny. And it can’t be good for Zag’s reputation. Sounds like another tipton.

    Zag is a tool and always has been. An unnamed source is code for “i’m full of _______.” What most liars do is try to spin their lie into their favor…..just watch, zag will make up a new lie to try and cover his tracks.

    Twins, Wiggins, Randle, Lee plus either Young or Gordon. I’m optimistic that we get 6 out of those 7. If we didn’t feel good about our chances we’d be recruiting backup players but we aren’t. We will lose our entire roster this year and will have a team of all freshman in 2013. Cal will prove the world wrong yet again by using 6 freshman players to win the ‘ship and may go undefeated.

    No post regarding the game, Joker, keep or fire, his humiliation of Morgan Newton, lack of preparation in not giving Newton reps this past week, terrible game-planning and lack of adjustments, continued use of “we’re better than this”, upside/downside of keeping Joker longer than tomorrow, etc? You going to the Joker Fantasy Camp?

    #9: Good point(s). The Joker Fantasy Camp will be a tough ticket due to the fact that is held only between Joker’s ears!

    Is it just me or is does it seem like the Harrison father is too involved with the media? Maybe it’s just because there have been several updates on the twins recruitment on this site but I feel like their father is very involved in national attention they’re getting…

    I’m ready to move on from these guys. It is never a good omen when one or both parents puts themselves above their son(s). I wished that Cal hadn’t put all his eggs in this one basket. And, i’m not second guessing him (the man is a marvelous machine) but this is getting ridicious!

    Every year is the same thing. Top ranked recruits do not decide quickly enough for UK fans and then a few people start complaining about all the drama and that we would be better off without them.
    Happened with Wall. Happened with Davis. Happening again. Face it. High profile recruits are going to do this. Deal with it and try not to sound ignorant by saying that we don’t need them or would be better off without them. Quite likely you are wrong.

    #16, there’s a story to the name “Smiley Pete” but you’d have to be a long-time Lexington Native to know it.

    It does actually make a difference where one goes to school and it makes a difference in who mentors these recruits. Those who say that the Harrison boys will be 1st round draft picks wherever they go are probably right, but not all coaches challenge recruits to suceed as well as do others. Simply because an individual has talent does not mean the he will develop it to its full capability.

    #17, I’m not complaining. And, I never said that we would be better of w/o them. I’m not against thes young men wherever they go. I just u/s that sometimes parents can be too much baggage. Try to listen to what is actually being said, and leave the ignorance at home. Okay?

    Why is it that so many UK fans cannot u/s simple English. I never stated that UK would be better off w/o the Harrisons. And, I never said that I was discouraged. Learn to read people. I simply said that parents can bring too much baggage with them.

    Stevie: “I’m ready to move on” and “I wish Cal had not put his eggs in this one basket” just sounds like someone who is ready to move on and wishes we were not recruiting these kids so hard.
    Obviously I misunderstood you.

    Thank the Gods that your [email protected] ain’t in charge of anything important.

    Do us all a favor and STFU!

    Oh the Humanity! A parent is involved with the recruitment of his children. A parent is parenting. A parent is protective of his children.

    How dare he!!!

    HOW DARE HE!!!

    What kind of drugs are you on Stevie!?!

    I’m stupid!

    I’d abandon my children and make them do it all themselves. Billy G says that it will toughen them up.

    Kids gotta be tough!

    Play through the pain!

    I’d make the twins sit in the sh!tter until they made the decision that I wanted them to make.

    I’d whip Zags @ss! Can’t let the press get away wit’ dat stuff!

    Yeah! You ain’t tuff enuff!!!

    Stevie, I can u/s where you are coming from. We have a fake stevie(one who is ashamed of his own identity)at #28. We have an overactor (and a drug abuser) on #27. We have a self professed satan, and a little bitty ho on #26. I wish these pretend UK fans would show some tact. They embarrass all of us.

    Speak for yourself.

    You may be a redneck. You may be embarrassed. Most people don’t take much more away from these blogs and forums except that they wasted a few minutes and had a few laughs.

    It seems your whole life revolves around how you are perceived as a fan by the fans of other programs.

    That’s a fairly sad outlook on life.

    Go Satan! Go Humanity! You guys hit the nail on the head.

    Stevie, I u/s exactly what you meant. Many times parents live vicariously through their kids. This is what the Henry’s appeared to have done at Kansas. And, it is likely that the Harrisons might very well do this through their sons. It is difficult to blame the parents, but in the end, the decision should be up to the kids.

    #33, you seem to be on the side of Satan. You also seem to believe that a wasted comment on a blog is worth your time. You might better “hit the nail on the head” if you advised your fellow fans to try and get along



  35. Rocky

    There is nothing wrong with loving parents trying to assist their children in making wise choices. The problem is that some parents seek their own glory through their kids. This is never good and anyone who says it is needs help. I want the brothers to do what is right for them.

    Matt, why do you always feel the need to make fun of people’s hair? Is it because you have an unfortunate head of hair yourself? Or what?

    Matt you need to realize that recruits and families of recruits are the worst “sources” to have for recruiting. Families are always going to save face and keep it neutral, as they are doing now. After all these years you’d think you’d know.
