(NEW YORK) — Another victory for John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats on the recruiting trail. Twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison, the No. 2- and No. 4-ranked prospects in the ESPN 100, announced Thursday they will play for the Wildcats during the 2013-14 season.
The boys, who played high school ball in Richmond, Texas at Travis High, chose Kentucky over Maryland and SMU. Aaron is a shooting guard and Andrew is a point guard.
Andrew was asked if Kentucky head coach John Calipari’s track record of turning out high NBA Draft picks was in his mind when he made his decision.
“I know his track record,” Andrew said. “He has a lot of high draft picks as point guards. I just want to get there first. I just want to become better everyday. I’m not looking to into that yet, I just want to get there on campus and show them what I can do.”
Andrew and Aaron are the highest-rated basketball twins to ever come out of high school.
