Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you should know that the Harrison twins have committed to Kentucky. For some, you we’re surprised, but many of us were expecting the twins to pick UK. I personally was optimistic about the Cats chances to begin with. So I might as well give a quick recap, and discuss all of the happenings that took place in the twin’s high school.
One thing that really struck me was the statement “We will spend our next 4 years at the University of Kentucky.” Is this wishful thinking? Probably. But I guess it may still be “possible”. I also have to give it to the twins’ father. He kept his lips sealed and kept us guessing at the end.
I’m sure that many of you were also hitting up Twitter during the announcement. Here is one tweet that is sure to strike your attention.
Of course there had to be a few people that were out on the verge to insult the UK basketball program. That comes normally, but I feel this is a step to far. “Nike” and “World Wide Wes”? That’s downright ridiculous.
Let’s back off of the announcement for a minute, and look ahead at how these guys can change our program. The most obvious thing is that they will probably be one of the best duos to ever step foot on the court. But they should also be the start of a fantastic recruiting class. The Cats are definitely going to be in the mix for another No.1 class.
Most of you know Ben Roberts. He had a few interesting tweets after the announcement.
It’s good to hear that Young and the twins are willing to co-exist with each other, so that’s a good sign. Julius Randle also congratulated the twins after the announcement.
Here’s the video, in case you missed it.
