Two of the best players in the 2013 recruiting class are twins—Aaron and Andrew Harrison. Both players are 6'5" guards, and they hail from Travis, Texas.
The duo differ slightly from each other at the guard position, with Aaron running the team as a point guard and Andrew hitting shots as the primary shooting guard. Both players are incredible athletes and have smooth handles and pure shooting strokes from long range.
Aaron and Andrew intend to enroll in the same school, so one lucky program will land possibly the sweetest duo package in basketball recruiting history. According to a recent interview with the NBE Basketball Report, there are four schools who stand out as favorites for their commitment:
Aaron, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound shooting guard, told NBE Sports that Kentucky, Maryland, Baylor, and Villanova are the main schools being considered by him and his brother. He claims no favorites, but did concede that one program generates the most buzz when he and Andrew talk college.
Fans of the blue and white are going to love the answer that the twins gave to this question:
“Yeah, like Kentucky probably,” Harrison said.
Asked why it is UK that is in that spot, Harrison replied, “They put people in the NBA and their style of play is great.”
The twins have long been rumored to land at Kentucky, and one of the main reasons why is head coach John Calipari. When asked about Coach Cal, Aaron had this to say:
“It’s a great feeling. [He is] such a wonderful coach—great career, put so many people in the NBA. Feels amazing.”
Signs are certainly pointing the Cats way, but everyone knows that there is never a guarantee in college recruiting. However, the Harrison twins appear to be incredible prospects in the 2013 class and will hopefully form the backbone of another top-ranked recruiting class next season.
