Months of speculation ended this afternoon when the top-ranked point guard in the nation, Andrew Harrison, and top-ranked shooting guard, twin brother Aaron, announced their intentions to play for Kentucky next fall. Kentucky seems to be on its way to having the no. 1 recruiting class for the fifth straight year. Julius Randle and Andrew Wiggins to follow? From CBS Sports: “The Kentucky luster is stronger than ever. Maryland had essentially everything going for it when it came to Andrew and Aaron Harrison. There was the six-year relationship head coach Mark Turgeon had with the family. There was the friendship Aaron Harrison Sr. had with assistant coach Bino Ranson, and the friendship the twins have with incoming Maryland freshman Shaq Cleare. The twins’ grandparents live in Baltimore. And of course, Under Armour. Kentucky had John Calipari. And Calipari doesn’t lose. In the end, that’s all the Wildcats needed. The twins pledged to Kentucky on Thursday afternoon, choosing the Wildcats over Maryland. It could jumpstart yet another No. 1 class for Calipari.”
