Harrison twins go with Kentucky

Andrew and Aaron Harrison announced their college decision on Thursday. The twins will play their college basketball in the SEC.

The much anticipated college decision for Andrew and Aaron Harrison is in.

The Harrison twins announced on national television they would attend the University of Kentucky to play for John Calipari. They picked the Wildcats over Maryland and SMU.

"For the next four years we will be attending the University of Kentucky," the Harrison twins said in unison at their announcement on ESPNU.

John Calipari and his staff spent a considerable amount of time tracking the twins the past few years and made a pair of in-home visits with the duo from Richmond (Tex.) Travis in the past month

Andrew has a rare combination of size, strength and athleticism at the point guard position. At 6-foot-5, he doesn't have issues getting into the lane, is a terrific playmaker and also an accomplished scorer. Andrew is ranked No. 2 overall in the 2013 class.

His brother – Aaron – is known as one of the best scorers in the 2013 class. His range is deep on his jump shot and he doesn't have any issues getting points off the bounce or at the rim. Aaron is regarded as the No. 3 player in the class.

With the addition of the Harrison twins to their 2013 recruiting class, Kentucky jumps to No. 1 in the 2013 class rankings. The Wildcats also hold a pledge from Kentucky native Derek Willis.

As juniors the twins led Travis to the Texas Class 5A title game. Andrew averaged 12 points and six assists a game, while Aaron went for nearly 19 points and five rebounds per contest.
