Harrison Twins Helping Cal On The Recruiting Trail

  

Cal hangs out with Jay-Z, Julius Randle hangs out with Beyonce. It makes too much sense. 

 

The Harrison Twins choosing to spend their “4 years” at Kentucky is one of the biggest recruiting coups in recent memory. Not very often do you get 2 Top-5 ranked players to commit on the same day. Rarer than even that, is getting 2 Top-5 players who happen to be identical twin brothers. With the twins on board to go along with Top 100 in-state kid Derek Willis, Kentucky and Calipari are piecing together what could be the greatest recruiting class in the history of college basketball.

According to Zagsblog’s “source”, which is the most overused word in sports these days, the Harrison’s are reaching out to Julius Randle and James Young to join them in Lexington in 2013. Although Zagoria tries to enhance his source’s credibility by saying they “correctly predicted the Harrison’s wanted to play at Kentucky” which narrows it down to just about everybody that follows recruiting, it’s always good to hear when future ‘Cats are taking a stake in the future of the program. Julius Randle is thought to be a Kentucky lean now after earlier rumors that Randle did not want to play with the twins were refuted by he and his family. James Young, the #7 overall player in the class, has slowed his recruitment considerably since the summer when many thought it would be any day that he would pull the trigger for the ‘Cats, but the general consensus still remains that Kentucky is the favorite.

The “source” goes on to say:

“Them playing with James YOung, that’s good for James,” the source said.

“They want it to be their team. They want it to be everybody followed us [to Kentucky].”

 

Needless to say, this basketball season comes first, but it’s hard not to get excited about the future of Kentucky basketball, especially with the added bonus of 2 extra recruiters to help Calipari out, because if there’s anything that John Calipari needs help in, it’s recruiting.

    Somewhat off topic, but I am watching Jorts playing in an exhibition game for Miami right now against Atlanta! I am so happy for him and so glad he ended up on such a great team with a good chance to win a ring this year. #BBN

    I watched Willis play in the Joe B. Hall invitational and wasn’t impressed. Hopefully Cal will whip him into shape.

    To #9: What a horrible thing to say. Maybe you are too young and ignorant to know the slang use of the word “coon” decades ago. Maybe you are a fan of another school trying to create a negative image of UK fans by the use of such an derogatory and emotionally charged term. I certainly hope someone edits out your comment that could be viewed as highly racist.

    Did you go to the Corey Nichols School of Journalism? Your grammar is atrocious, and your observations are pedestrian at best.

    Chris Walker only went to Florida because Kentucky did not offer. Take note Julius Randle & James Young. You should feel special.

    @9 – if you’re a real UK fan, then you shame our entire fan base with your ignorant, offensive attitude. How did you get Internet access in the 1950’s world where you’re living?!?

    It’s good either way! If he comes to UK great, but if he goes to Florida we still get Gordon or Lee and they(UF) help bring more respect to the SEC. BTW # 9 your a piece of $hit

    To the Editor: Thank you for removing the racially offensive comment from the person who used to be listed as #9 as I requested. The fact you removed his comment so quickly is a clear indication to others that such a negative and offensive remark is not a reflection of us Kentucky fans.

    For the record, after the comment #9 that I and others objected to was removed, my post #10, was moved up to #9. #16 became became #15, who is referring to the comment of what is now #14.

    I ordered mines at this link. Brought tears to my eyes as I relived the journey of that season. Go to Amazon to order your copy. It was produced by UK legend Derek Anderson. Tyrese Gibson is also narrating the movie. After a magical season like last year it showed me that the legacy of Big Blue Nation lives on. Coach Cal has his hands on the recruitment process so we are looking forward to a repeat this year!! Go Big Blue!!
