Calipari wants the Harrison Twins

Recruiting is never far from the minds of UK fans, but that interest is at a peak today as Andrew and Aaron Harrison - otherwise known as the Harrison Twins - will make their decision of where to play basketball next season.  The announcement is at 5 p.m. on ESPNU, and has created a buzz.

John Calipari is in the mix with seven of the top 11 players in the class of 2013, and has a very good chance to land the best class in the history of college basketball.  It starts with the Harrison Twins.  The Bleacher Report has an article here about what landing them twins would mean to UK.

Over the past 10 days or so it has become clear that their father wants them to go to Maryland-really bad.  The Twins, however, are leaning toward UK according to many players who played with them on the AAU circuit this past summer.  Daddy has all the hallmarks of the meddlesome type that makes coaches, fans, and even players cringe, so it will be interesting to see how this plays out. 

One thing is for certain-the way UK and John Calipari have things rolling at UK, one has to wonder why ANY star player with NBA asipirations would choose anyone over Kentucky.  Unless a player chooses Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Michigan State, or maybe UCLA or Louisville, there is no reason for a top player to go elsewhere-it simply makes no sense.  That would be something the NCAA might want to look into!

Tune in at 5 on ESPNU for the announcement!  Go Cats!

1. This loss means nothing. UK lost a game on the road in bizarre circumstances vs a very good team. If anything,...
Time to put Texas A&M to bed and get tuned up for a high seed in the big dance.
Epic collapse by UK tonight. Still something not right with this team.
Tough loss over the weekend, but the Cats showed heart...they'll be back.
