The Harrison twins are down to two schools, and it’s the two everybody figured it would come down to.
Reggie Rankin of ESPN.com Tweeted: “Harrison twins trim list to three. Kentucky, Maryland and SMU a distant third according to father Aaron Harrison who I spoke with 30 sec ago.”
Aaron Harrison Sr. was not immediately available for comment.
Kentucky head coach John Calipari, along with assistants Orlando Antigua and Kenny Payne, had a home visit Sunday with the Harrisons, while Maryland coach Mark Turgeon and assistants Bino Ranson and Scott Spinelli met with them Monday.
The twins may visit Maryland Oct. 12 for Midnight Madness after visiting Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness a year ago.
They will announce Oct. 29 at their high school in Texas.
The twins picked Oct. 29 to announce because it’s the day following their birthday.
“Our birthday is Oct. 28 but it’s a Sunday so we normally take Sundays off,” Andrew told SNY.tv last month.
“We’re just really ready to make a decision so we can just get it over with and enjoy our senior year.”
