The Harrison twins and James Young were in town only for the weekend

harrisons

Womp. Womp. Womp.

The Harrison twins and James Young were in Lexington last weekend, those photos are real, but they aren’t living in Lexington — not yet. The three soon-to-be UK freshmen were in town for one of the ‘long weekends’ John Calipari mentioned on the SEC teleconference on June 24. In case you missed that one, Cal said, “I think they’re going to come in this weekend (June 28-30) and what we’re hoping is that they are able to flow into the six-week session, and if they’re not, they’ll stay a couple of long weekends and they’ll be fine.”

Before the speculation begins, it’s important to note that the Harrison twins’ high school graduation wasn’t until the second Saturday of June when other members of UK basketball’s class were already on campus. James Young’s Rochester High School was in session until June 13. Julius Randle graduated on May 24, over three weeks before Young received his diploma. UK’s eight-week summer session began on June 6.

The Harrisons and Young are fine — no need to freak out, folks — their senior years of high school ran into June, past summer registration and the first day of summer classes. They’re just finishing things up back home before moving to Lexington to begin the quest for Kentucky’s ninth title.

They’ll be back soon and for good, likely in early August.

“They’re fine.”

    Isn’t this something that could have easily been taken care of like weeks ago? I’m pretty sure you don’t have to physically be on campus to register for a summer class.

    While I don’t know much about how all this works, I would think that it’s possible they may have to take summer school classes at their own high school. When I graduated, there were a few kids who didn’t have the credit hours to graduate, but they let them walk and receive a “diploma” anyway, knowing they would finish up their hours in summer school. I don’t know if this is the case with them, but it seems at least plausible. Plus I would understand why they wouldn’t advertise it.

    Lincoln is correct. The basketball players do have to attend an orientation (called an Advising Conference) just like all other freshman. But, Cal and staff should’ve known that they weren’t going to be able to register in time. So, send a preemptive tweet or have KSR report that BEFORE they arrive to campus last weekend. As opposed to prior reporting that “they’ve arrived”. This story will create a bunch of unnecessary worry and rumors that could’ve been easily avoided.

    Regardless of what is going on academically, you need your 3 best guards (particularly if they are all freshmen, playing with other freshmen) on campus as soon as possible. Chemistry has been a question mark since day 1. This does not help those suspicions. I wouldn’t worry about them being clear academically… I would simply want them to become acclimated to their teammates, coach, and playing style as soon as possible.

    This is the same dang problem we had with last year’s team. Cal can’t win unless he gets the guys in for a full summer. That is the key to the one and done method. Too bad these guys can’t cut the strings and get here to get to work.

    You think the problem on last years team was that they didn’t have a full summer to work together? That’s just way off base. For one, we basically had no point guard last season. Harrow was a disaster, we all know that. For another, there was no leadership and practically no experience (Wiltjer doesn’t count, he wilted -no pun intended- under a leadership role). Stop panicking everyone, for Christ sake. Cal doesn’t seem concerned and I’ll bet everything I own that he knows better than all of you

    I have a feeling things will be fine. They’ll still have several months of playing together to develop chemistry with their teammates, also having some time in the all star games. This is not the same problem last year’s team had. They simply had the wrong pieces, had no depth, and had no leadership. Everything is fine. The sky is not falling.

    Spot on, and pretty much my thought too. 2 or 3 weeks in the summer, several months before the season, is not going to make a break a team that is so talented and seems so driven to win.

    Y’all need to calm down. This is the 2nd session, it’s eight weeks and ends in early August.

    The first session usually begins in May. No need for concern, the timing didn’t allow them to move down in time for classes to start.

    Not concerned because Boogie says Randle is a beast and Bledsoe pretty much says the same thing about the twins and Young. So when 2 future NBA all-star players say we are legit, then I’m sure we’ll be legit.

    KSR also said that the twins and Young will come up to Lexington a few more weekends during the summer (paying their own way). Chemistry will be fine and I’m sure the rest of the team understands the situation.



  35. Steve
    11:10 am July 3, 2013 Permalink

    Cal could have diffused the situation by not alluding to the possibility that they “could flow into the six-week session.” First of all, there is no 6-week session, it’s 8 weeks, and it started almost a month ago, on June 6th. There’s no way they could have taken summer courses here when they still hadn’t graduated high school.

    #20 Couldn’t agree with you more. It’s not like were being a-holes or negative about it, its just the reality of it. (and they probably dont understand that as 18 yr old kids) They need to get to Lexington ASAP to get aquainted with their teamates as early as possible.(not only to build chemistry off the court but on the court as well) Could make a HUGE difference!

    37, are you serious? They couldn’t get on campus because they didn’t GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL in time to REGISTER FOR CLASSES. It is apparent that you don’t understand how college registration works. There are 2 summer semesters at Kentucky. The registration for them ENDS BEFORE they start. The Twins didn’t get their diploma’s in time for their freshman registration windows. It’s not like they’re being lazy and just not wanting to come to Lexington for the summer. Jesus.

    #19. I wouldn’t worry about chemistry and familiarity so much. First, um, they’re twins. They know each other pretty well. Second, and as related to the other freshmen, they’re kids. Let them have a summer. You want them in the gym all summer? There are other things in their lives than pleasing fans and work, work, work.

  43. The Loco Pollo

    Why are people freaking out? This is a cut and dry situation. In order for scholarship players to be on campus, living on their scholarship perks (lodging, food, etc) they have to be enrolled in classes. The Harrisons and Young’s high school year didn’t end until after UK was already in the 2nd summer school session. Hence, if they’re in Lexington it has to be on their own dime. If anything, they should be applauded for making the effort to come to Lexington to be with teammates when they or their families have to pay for it.

    Cal referenced a 6-week session. UK’s site also mentions a 6-week intersession, but doesn’t have details on what that is. I think that’s where the confusion might’ve been. I’m also not sure that online classes would count (unless you’re Johnny Football). Of course, UNC would’ve created a fake class for them.

    So, calm down. If anyone’s to blame it’s the school systems the 3 guys were in for going so long. By the way, this affects others too, not just UK – mainly anyone who went to school north of the Mason Dixon line.

  45. NO MATT JONES
    11:47 am July 3, 2013 Permalink

    43, the intersession is a 6 week period that ends 8/24. Think of it like the classes that begin mid semester and continue a bit into winter or summer break. Typically these classes are general information classes, about UK, and other useless stuff, and aren’t taught by professors, but peer mentored or academic advisors. That’s at least my experience, and limited knowledge of them.

    These are the same kids that keep the schools waiting before making their announcment as to which school they will bless with their play and then when they make their much anticipated decision they can’t come to campus and play with the other mere mortals. These guys think they are too good to come for the summer and have already started to show they intend to have things their way. If they ever do show up they will be trouble for the team.

    We need to realize that as an elite program our players can come from anywhere and that means their high school schedules can be very different from what we are used to here in KY. For example, my niece and nephew who live in CA just finished their classes the 3rd week of June. They don’t start their school year until after Labor Day. Schools are controlled at the local level and each school district decides when to begin their school year.
    So, this situation with the Harrisons and Young is in all likely hood going to happen from time to time. UK’s summer sessions start fairly early, before many high schools around the country are finished with their spring term. Let’s not make of it more than what it is.

    There probably isn’t reason to worry, but Marcus Lee graduated June 6th, and got to school on the 8th, and started taking classes on the 9th. Summer school started on the 6th, and he was still able to enroll late. Not saying there is reason to panic, but I also wouldn’t assume everything is just peachy. I think Michigan St had concerns over James Youngs eligibility last year, and he did transfer highschools… Hopefully it all works out though!

    55 (Bledsoe’s Biceps) – You, sir, lack reading comprehension. I stated, “So they graduated late. That’s fine.”

    So that’s why they couldn’t get here at the start of classes. No biggie. So why couldn’t they get here the day after school ended? The next week? And, more on the point of my post, what are the “things” that are being finished up between the end of high school and getting on campus permanently?

    I read somebody asked about the second summer session and I know for a fact that summer session registration is closed because classes started on June 22nd as I was enrolled in one but dropped the course. And as for “finishing up” back home, that just means they had to actually graduated before they can enroll in college summer courses. No need to freak out people. The Harrison twins and James Young are fine. This team is still gonna be insanely talented. And we are still gonna win our 9th national championship. Go Cats!

    I am SURE that all UK basketball players are there to eventually obtain a COLLEGE degree. After all, that’s one of the points of being a COLLEGE basketball player, and not a charade of a pro player.

That of course doesn’t include Patrick Patterson, Josh Harrellson, and Darius Miller who both obtained their degrees and are/were in the NBA and who finished their UK careers with Cal and Perry Stevenson, Mark Krebs, and Ramon Harris who I believe all graduated under Cal.

    Polson was/is a walk-on. Basically, it sounds like we agree. NO Cal recruits in the past eight years (at both UK and Memphis) have obtained a college degree at that Cal program. NONE. Now,I realize that Cal’s only been at UK for four years, so….

    The most likely to do so? Two guys that haven’t even played at UK yet; D. Hawkins and D. Willis. Those guys could graduate a full eight years after Cal arrived at UK. In other words, a charade of a “college” program. Does that not bother anyone even a little?



  76. Linda Taylor
    4:08 pm July 3, 2013 Permalink

    73 – Vargas, Polson, Beckham were all Cal recruits. Those who have been at UK long enough to get a degree have. You are unfairly including 8 years in your demand of knowing which of his recruits have graduated. He hasn’t been at Memphis for the last 4 years and had zero control over what happened to his recruits there over the last 4 years. You also don’t want to include any holdovers from other coaches that he has helped to finish their college careers. Brian Long, Sam Malone are on target to finish their degrees as is Kyle Wiltjer (if he chooses to stay). Poythress and Cauley-Stein will be very close to having a degree by the end of next year as they will have 2 full years and 2 summers worth of classes under their belts. It will be easy for them to finish even if they go to the NBA after next year. Cal is also helping former players (Tubby and Rick players) finish their degrees and get into coaching. The point is that those who are NBA players don’t need their college degrees and are making more money than the vast majority of those who do have college degrees and those who aren’t one or two and dones are getting their degrees. So take your hate somewhere else.



  77. Catmandu

    And,as for Bennett, something tells me that SOMEONE recruited under Kruger at UNLV, or some UNLV player in the past few years, has obtained a college degree. There’s gotta be someone! If not, UNLV is just as bad. What do want to bet that Cal is the ONLY college coach that will go eight years without producing a recruited player who gets a diploma? I know, I know, Cal recruits such elite talent that can make their millions without having to stay. That’s true for many Cal players. And, makes the UK program a charade of a “college” program.



  78. Catmandu
    4:17 pm July 3, 2013 Permalink

    76: So we also agree. Polson, Malone, Long and Beckham are/were walk-ons. Vargas flunked out at Florida, and transferred in to UK over the 1/2 way point of his college career. Wiljter WAS the most likely scholly player to get a UK degree, but …well, you see how the trend is going? You are saying that WCS or Poy are the most likely, I say it’s Willis or DH. Either way, you are wearing the serious blue-tinted glasses if you can’t admit the simple facts. I have had enough.

    79: My point is that a “college” basketball team that does not EVER recruit scholly players who have any proven intention of obtaining a college degree is a charade of a “college” program. This will not end well, and I don’t like it. If you all like it, that’s absolutely your prerogative.

    75 – You may not count walk-ons as members of our team, but we do. By the way they all were on scholarship last year. Polson was an important contributor to the team last year as a scholarship player. If a kid makes it to the NBA it doesn’t matter to me one bit that he doesn’t have a degree. Jamal Mashhburn didn’t finish his degree but he took his NBA and endorsement earnings and became a business mogul. You are just jealous that these kids are getting to live their dream and you are just sitting behind a computer taking pot shots at them.

    80: Cal aboslutely knows how to coach the game of basketball, but you are right; I hate this aspect of the program.

    Anyone think Catmandu is actually Old School? (Catmandu that is an insult if you don’t know).

    82: You may consider Polson and walk-ons to be valued equals of the team, but Polson just was forced to give up his uni # to one of the Harrisons.

    Walk-ons are not equals in Div I. They don’t count toward APR, don’t get the bennies that scholly players get, and don’t play much.

    EVER? So Cal didn’t recruit Wiltjer? This Shows your bias and agenda.

    84:Don’t know who Old School is, and I don’t feel insulted. I’m not trying to attack you or insult you either. I just don’t like the “model” of the way the UK program is being run, and I do not think it will end well.

    85. Just Stop, Polson has been on Scholarship the last 2 years.

    86: I’m pretty sure that Kyle Wiltjer, who is transferring from UK, will not get a UK degree.

    Once again, the only walk-on last year was Tod Lanter. Do you think Polson cares more about his number or winning a national championship?

    87. U must not watch a lot of college basketball because this “model” is being used alot in College basketball.

    89 – Keep up, the latest from Wiltjer’s father is that he very possibly may come back. And Old School is one of the most hated commenters on this site. I haven’t seen him lately so he may either be using a different name or hopefully has been banned.

    Catmandu – You’re one of the people that chooses to ignore when player return to school, or when facts like Poythress’ 4.0 GPA are made public, huh? You’re just a hater. Sure, many of Cal’s players leave early to reach the pinnacle of their professions, but they’ve all be upstanding citizens during their time at UK. If Goldman Sachs was offering millions to Finance students to leave early, would you have an issue?

    You should spend your time looking at the stats of programs who keep guys 4 years, don’t send them on to pro ball and they still don’t graduate. Heck, you can look at former UK coaches I’m sure you adore like Pitino & Tubby who have more instances of that happening on their watch than Cal. That’s a way bigger travesty and waste if you ask me (or any other sane person).

    James Young was not in school until June 13. The last day for seniors at Rochester High School was May 21. June 13 was the last day for grades 6 – 11. Click on the 5/20/13 date on this link.

    I would bet Wiltjer is just waiting to see if the Twins get eligible after which he will be gone.
