The Harrison Twins pick KENTUCKY

The Harrison Twins picked Kentucky! The Harrison Twins picked Kentucky!

Aaron and Andrew Harrison, the third and fourth ranked members of the 2013 class (both #1 in their positions), just chose the Cats over Maryland, vaulting Kentucky’s future title hopes into the stratosphere. While most analysts put the smart money on Kentucky, the family’s ties to Mark Turgeon, Under Armour, and the Baltimore area had everyone guessing until the last minute. They join Derek Willis in Kentucky’s 2013 class, which is well on its way to being absolutely epic.

Welcome to the fam, boys. Julius, James, and Mr. Wiggins: you’re next.

When asked why they chose the Cats, the twins said they wanted to go somewhere they could win right away and that during their visit, they “felt like rock stars.”

    How much upgrading have you all done to the servers? The site’s actually loading on an announcement day for the first time in years.

    Also, if the twins did 2 years, I’d be shocked. But good on them if they want to get their degrees or multiple titles before the NBA.

    I never really understood the Under Armour angle for Maryland because these kids can still sign with that brand when they enter the NBA — if that’s what they choose to do. John Wall choosing Reebok is a perfect example of that.

    Andrew averaged 12 points, six assists and 4.9 rebounds per game for last year’s Texas Class 5A runner-up. Aaron averaged 18 points, four rebounds and two assists. I thought their averages would be higher. No complaints though. #twinning

    Wouldn’t surprise me if these two aren’t one-and-dones based on their desire to play together for as long as they possibly can (hence the four-year quote). I believe playing together multiple years in college will weigh more to them than lottery money once their freshman year wraps. And I know some twins deal with anxiety issues over the thought of being separated. I’m predicting they’ll wear blue and white for two seasons before jumping to the league.

    These 2 had the respect to tell Marylands coach in person. Not over the phone or have their father do it for them. Tells these boys have been raised right and have respect for others.
