Harrison Twins to Announce Thursday?

twins

The Maryland website “Terps Insider” is reporting that the Harrison Twins will announce their college decision on Thursday at 5 pm on ESPNU. According to the site, ESPNU reported this news on their college football show today. If so, they will be moving up the date from their supposed October 29th announcement that had been previously planned. We shall see.

UPDATE: Looks legit…here is the ESPNU promo for the show:

    They are Cats. I would be shocked if they pick Maryland. It won’t be long after they commit Young will commit.

    Is this good or bad? I can’t decide. The optimistic Cats fan in me says yes. My guess is the twins told daddy what the deal was. Poppa bear prolly told them to check out marylands madness in hopes they’d change their mind. The boys musta said, no need

    This is good.

    I recall reading somewhere that the twins were a UK lean but they wanted to make the announcement before any other major recruits (no disrespect to willis) so the fact that they’re bumping it up… (and it doesn’t look to be a rumor… https://twitter.com/TerrapinNation/status/252910599728689153/photo/1 ) at the same time a lot of pieces seem to be falling in place for the 2013 class, is probably not a coincidence.

    I could be wrong, but I think it’s encouraging.

    I really just dont care about these moments anymore. Cal has taken the suspense out of it. I think Harrisons will commit and if they dont, oh well, he’ll find 2 more studs to take their spots. I thougt Nerlens was Gtown bound and got surprised. UK fans just dont have to sweat these moments near as much as we used to. Its awesome really.

    hmmm, I wonder if they’re still attending UM’s midnight madness – if so, then I’d say they’re gonna be terrapins.
    However, if they’ve cancelled that visit – then they’ll be wearing the blue and white of UK.

    Not a big deal they knew first. One of their writers or somebody was probably just watching ESPNU, saw the promo, and immediately announced it on the site. Its not like they announced it before the promo ran.

    #17 excellent comment shelbyjoe! Definitely an astute observation! It never occurred to me that it would be weird if the Harrison twins committed to UK but still kept their plans to attend Maryland’s Madness. Any way… Thanks ShelbyJoe! I really hope to see more analysis from you on the comments section. ShelbyJoe!

    I don’t know. I’m kind of nervous. Wasn’t there a report the other day that the twins called Turgeon to Texas? Couldn’t they have committed to him then and now they’re making it public?

    The Twins never had a visit set for UM Midnight Madness. Their dad publicly denied It and said they hadnt even discussed going to Midnight Madness anywhere yet. I dont know how to feel about them bumping up their decision though.

    I really think them moving the announcement up is good news for Kentucky. I think Cal has backup plan after backup plan and I think he gets his offers to *&$% or get off the pot. If you want to come and be part of this, then let’s go, if not, we are moving on.

    Only a hopeless pessimist would say these boys aren’t coming to UK. Anyone who has been following Cal’s recruiting would know that one is his point guard and other his shooting guard.

    Clearly deciding to beat James Young to the punch and want to come to BBM in true style – COMMITTED!!



  39. RocketDeuce2
    8:43 pm October 1, 2012 Permalink

    I see this as a good sign, these two have been wanting to be the first of the bigger pieces to fall, and with Young looking to becoming a serious contender to UK and seems to be ready to pull the trigger, I think the twins just want to go ahead and be the first to commit. Look for Young to commit after BBM.

    You know, that Wildcat Nation message board that has link to the right of the page is bullsh–.
    I got banned over there because i got tired of a guy named “Surveyor” who kept typing in this exagerrated hillbilly sort of way. I voiced an opinion, and got banned. No cuss words, nothing. Many people blasted me and seemed to get by with calling me names. I say they are South Carolina mascot-suckers. Don’t waste your time there. Let that place wither and die. Evidently, if you are new, they kick you out over anything.

    I saw them at the barber they were having (Blue x 2) shaved in their hair? So it’s either UK or they’re sad they have to go to Maryland.

    The reason it was shown and reported in maryland first ona maryland site is because the comerical ran during a pre recorded show on the east coast before it was shown in other areas. Thus thats why it landed on a MD site first.

    You can read abck and forth inot this completely at different levels. But over all I think that this is a good sign overall for UK. They want to commit FIRST before any other recurits wanted to commit (james young in lex this pasxt weekend). I think these two will commit to UK thirty min. into the show and will do it ina “Noel” fashin by pulling something unique. I live in Western Ky and they are slated to appear at the hoops fest down in Marhsall Co. to play in that tourn. down there (which is also where WIggins will be playing for the same tourn. ) I don’t see two kids who are being heavily recurited by us (UK) NOT committing to us and then showing up in Kentucky to play in a two day massive tour. deep into UK territory !

    Bank on it…their ours !

    IMHO — kids want to be CATS! Dad say regardless of school you will only be in college for 1 year so go to my choice– be a TERP! Cal and Coach O put a lot into these kids (kind of like Shabbaz M) Coaches cannot compete with Dad though. Hate to say it- TERPS WIN this one! Move on guys. Don’t waste time and text anymore.

    44) Yes Noel has. Just because the NCAA continued investing they did not withdraw his initial clearing. Also, nothing has come of it. All is well.

    I have felt really good about our chance of landing the twins here in Lex, but the fact that the last interaction they had were with the Maryland coaches puts me on edge. I think that they are vital in the 2013 class hanging a banner. I think that if uk does pick them up the ball really gets rolling with the other recruits. If we don’t get them I can see harrow staying for his senior year along with wiggins, randle, young, and lee. I have really had high hopes of watching the twins be a part of possibly the best class in Kentucky history. The cats will definitely be contenders for the championship in 2013 with or without the twins,, but their decision is going to make the difference in a really good recruiting class and a historic recruiting class! I hope they make the decision to make history. Go Cats!

    How much you think Cal is paying? Jobs for the entire fam like Brandon Knight? High school buddies in school for free like Lamb (Richie Pacheco) and Turrence Jones (dude who crashed his car)?

    All I know is, I can’t wait for Cal to be busted for this and #vac8 is in full effect!

    54) Don’t forget the home the Cousins family was given in Lexington (on a golf course). big Scuzz’s baby bro was even enrolled at Lexington Catholic. Once word got out that they were living there for free, he and his mom moved in the dark of night. But don’t tell that to the hillbillies. Coach Cow is their God and he would never do something like that.

    51 hit the nail on the head. We are gonna compete for a championship with or without the Twins. So they can jump on board and hang a banner or go be insignificant.

Come up with new material, although this is the first I have heard about Boogie and all his “benefits”. Maybe you can keep it coming, I enjoy the laughs! Thanks in advance

    Would love to see these kid in blue. If they do committe chances are high Young will as well at midnight madness. Leaving Randell as the main target. Would be great to have these kids to help sway Randle who I think will have a greater impact at UK then any of them. We could have our class wrapped up before the start of the season.
    #16 I’ve been saying the same thing for 3 years. It’s great to have Cal. Tubby couldn’t even get 5 stars to even list us. Now Cal is getting half of the top 10. Really is amazing the contrast of styles. Man it’s good to be a CAT fan now.

    #’s 33, 36,47, 54, and 56 What type of lives do you trolls live. Trolling rivals sites speaking out your a## to people who don’t want you here anyway. Isn’t there anything to read on the loserville site. STFO
    Why is #30 comment allowed to stay up. If he had made the same comments about any minority group it would have been taken down. Racism isn’t applied just to certain colors. It’s no better being directed at any group of people. It’s 2012 people I thought we where better then this. Remember people when these sterio types are being made they include all Kentuckians not just the ones in eastern Kentucky. Racism is wrong period! No matter who it’s directed towards.

    The fact is…UK is the most dominate program with an elite coach that knows 1. How to win championships and 2. How to develop NBA players and set them up nicely in the draft BOTH of which the Harrison twins want. Not taking away from MD but you can’t compete with UK basketball. It’s like setting a candy bar and peas in front of a child, which one will they pick? Now either way the Harrison boys will make it to the NBA but will they have a championship and more $$$ in their pockets come draft night? For future success UK is a no brainer. If they don’t pick UK its bc of Dad and then directly after they need to investigate why they picked MD if we don’t land them.
