Twins Andrew and Aaron Harrison, both of whom are ranked among the nation's top five basketball recruits by virtually every recruiting service, have committed to Kentucky for next year, multiple media outlets reported Thursday. Andrew, a point guard, and Aaron, a shooting guard, attend Richmond (Texas) Travis High and chose Kentucky over Maryland and SMU. "We liked coach (John) Calipari's fire to win and we want to win a national championship," Andrew said, according to ESPN.com. "Also," said Aaron, "Coach Calipari did not guarantee anything and we liked that." Aaron and Andrew Harrison, both of whom are 6-foot-5, are the highest rated basketball twins ever to come out of high school, although there is some debate about which is the better prospect. Andrew is rated the nation's No. 2 overall prospect in the class of 2013 by ESPN and Aaron is No. 4, but Rivals.com ranks Aaron No. 3 in the nation and Andrew No. 4. Scout.com has Andrew rated second and Aaron third. Andrew averaged 12 points, six assists and 4.9 rebounds per game last year. Aaron averaged 18 points, four rebounds and two assists. ESPN.com now ranks Kentucky's 2013 recruiting class No. 1 in the country, although a number of top prospects have yet to make a commitment.
