Kentucky’s Harrison Twins to Enter Draft (UPDATED)
University of Kentucky sophomore twins Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison will both enter the NBA Draft, according to CBS Sports’s Gary Parrish.
Parrish wrote that the twins will formally announce their intentions soon.
“They came close last year,” Craig Brownson, who coached the twins at Travis (TX) High School, told Jerry Tipton. “I was glad they came back.
“It wouldn’t surprise me at all if they decided to come out.”
Andrew is projected to be the No. 53 pick in the draft, according to Draft Express. Aaron is not projected to be drafted, Draft Express said. According to an NBA scout, Aaron is the better NBA prospect than Andrew.
