A common misconception about the Harrison Twins is that Andrew is the more talented of the two. It was Aaron Harrison that won Mr. Basketball in Texas, but for some reason, Andrew has gotten more hype from the media. However, we’re hearing that’s not the case, as is Gary Parrish, who quotes some sources at UK as saying there is no talent gap between the twins:
But Aaron Harrison — AKA, the other Harrison — has been so splendid in preseason workouts that at least one observer close to the program told CBSSports.com that there doesn’t appear to be a gap between the brothers.
“Not at all,” said the source.
This week, three story lines have been making their way around the national media: 1) Julius Randle is better than many thought, possibly worthy of the #1 draft pick; 2) Dakari Johnson is underrated; and 3) Aaron Harrison is no slouch either.
Just think: they haven’t even started practicing full-time yet.
