Aaron and Andrew Harrison would be highly recruited whether they were both going to the same school or not. The fact that they are going to the same college makes them the most coveted and sought after players in the 2013 class.

Kentucky coach John Calipari has made the Harrison twins top priority, hoping the duo will pick the Wildcats when they make their decision October 29 , the day after their birthday.

The Harrison twins have narrowed their list to Kentucky, Maryland and SMU. Kentucky and Maryland seem to be the favorites.

Both Kentucky and Maryland are attempting to get the twins on campus for their Midnight Madness events. Whoever can get them on campus will have a better chance of nabbing the two highly-recruited twins. Aaron and Andrew made a visit to Kentucky last year for their Big Blue Madness event.

Aaron Harrison, who is the oldest of the twins, is ranked the fourth-best player in the 2013 class by ESPN.com. Aaron averaged 18.8 points and 4.6 rebounds a game at Travis High School in Richmond, Texas.

Andrew Harrison is considered the best point guard in the 2013 class by Scout.com. He averaged 12.1 points and six assists last year as a junior.

I recently had an opportunity to interview the Harrison twins' coach at Troy High School, Craig Brownson, about the highly-recruited brothers:

Bleacher Report: What kind of player is Andrew Harrison?

Craig Brownson: Fantastic point guard. He has all the tools. He is strong, so he protects the ball, has great court awareness and plays extremely unselfishly. He is strong enough to finish at the rim with contacts. Great on-ball defender.

CB: Great scorer, can also play the point. Has great range, but can also get to the rim and finish. In addition to having all the skills, he also has a high basketball IQ and understanding of the game.

BR: What kind of teammates are they?

CB: Great teammates. They are extremely unselfish and just want to be one of the guys. They are both fierce competitors, which makes everyone around them better.
