High School Hype: Harrison Twins

Andrew and Aaron Harrison are not only Top five basketball recruits in the 2013 class but they are also a pair of twins starring at Fort Bend Travis High School.

After deciding to drop football in seventh grade, the twins have elevated their games to elite status on the hardwood, which has earned them scholarship offers from all around the country.

This past October, the twins committed to the University of Kentucky.

"Me and my brother have played in a lot of big games before, we've played on TV a few times," Aaron Harrison Jr. said. "People at Kentucky expect us to come in there and win. Hopefully, that's what we can do for them."

One former Wildcat and current Rocket, Patrick Patterson is impressed with what he has seen so far from the duo.

"The Harrison Twins are extremly gifted," Patterson continued. "What blows my mind. Usually, when you have twins like that on the court together, they seem to want to do too much. But when they are out there together, they're both averaging 18-20 points a game."

What has made their journey so enjoyable is the fact they can enjoy it with each other.

"Most people have to do it by themselves and travel by themselves and go to all the camps by themselves but I always have a brother to take with me." Andrew said.

Their father, Aaron Sr., has put a lot of effort into developing the brothers. Both standing at 6-5, their games have been developed to complement each other on the court. Aaron is ranked No. 4 overall (No. 1 SG) in Rivals 2013 Class Rankings, while Andrew is listed at No. 5 overall (No. 1 PG).

"I like how they were raised. They both weren't raised to play the same position," Patterson said. "One was raised to play the 2, one was raised to play the 1. They're exceptionally well out there on the court together which blows my mind."

The twins were apart of last year's Fort Bend Travis team that made it all the way to the 5A State finals before falling to Flower Mound by four points. Getting back and winning is their last goal before they aim at a National Championship in Lexington.
