After a long and rumor-filled recruitment, Andrew and Aaron Harrison decided to play college basketball at the University of Kentucky.

The Harrisons, twin brothers from the Houston area, are both rated in the Top 5 of all high school seniors and are expected to have an immediate impact on the college level. Most basketball experts expect the twin brothers to only play one year in college before turning professional.

The Harrisons decision boiled down to Kentucky or the University of Maryland. The Maryland staff put in long hours recruiting the talented pair of guards, and listed relationships with family members and current players as reasons for the Harrison twins to attend Maryland.

In the end, the appeal of Kentucky, the defending national champion, proved too much for Maryland to overcome.

Kentucky's head coach John Calipari is famous for bringing in the top recruits in the country before sending them off to the NBA, and it appears the Harrison's will be the newest members to travel that path.
