ORLANDO, Fla. – Two of the most sought-after recruits in the class of 2013 are twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison.
Not surprisingly, both will likely attend the same college.
“I’ll tell you this: I have a six-bedroom house, they’re my only children and they sleep in the same room,” Aaron Harrison Sr. said.
While both players may look the same, they have differing games.
Andrew, a 6-foot-5 point guard ranked No. 5 in CBSSports.com’s Top 100, is tremendous off the bounce. He can get to the lane on nearly any defender and finish at the rim. On the other hand, Aaron is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard and ranked No. 10 in the top 100. He is a better long-range shooter who can fill it up in a hurry.
“They like each other, they believe in each other,” Harrison Sr. said of how they co-exist on the court.
In terms of recruiting, there is a top five for both: Villanova, Baylor, Kentucky, Maryland and Texas. Aaron also mentioned interest from Georgetown, Arizona, Kansas and North Carolina, while Andrew said Georgetown, Texas A&M and Kansas were in pursuit.
The twins plan to visit Villanova, Kentucky, Baylor and Maryland in the coming weeks.
“There’s six or seven schools they told me they want to go back and see, and talk to them,” Harrison Sr. said.
One school Harrison Sr. named in particular was Kentucky. "[John Calipari] has made them a priority," he said.
The best backcourt in high school basketball could soon be the best in college as well.
