Re: Harrison twins are committing at 5pm on ESPNu
The two biggest pieces of basketball recruiting news this year happened at the same time. Twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison of Richmond (Texas) Travis High committed to Kentucky on Thursday.
The Harrisons chose the Wildcats over Maryland and SMU.
"We liked coach (John) Calipari's fire to win and we want to win a national championship," Andrew said.
Added Aaron: "Also, Coach Calipari did not guarantee anything and we liked that."
The significance of the commitments centers around the fact that these are the highest-rated basketball twins ever to come out of high school. Andrew is the top point guard and No. 2 overall prospect in the ESPN 100, while Aaron is the No. 4 overall player and top-rated shooting guard in the country.
