In ESPN.com’s Dave Telep’s “Elite 24 Saturday Notebook” that was published earlier today, Telep discussed the Harrison twins, Andrew and Aaron. The two have made it obvious that they will be attending the same school and have trimmed their list to Kentucky, Maryland, SMU, and Baylor. They will be making their official visits to SMU and Maryland, but did not mention that they would be taking official visits to either Kentucky or Baylor. The reason for not taking an official visit to Kentucky was that they have spent so much time around the University of Kentucky, that they know everything they need to know about Kentucky, so need for alarm for Big Blue Nation there. However, the interesting thing for Kentucky fans everywhere is what Telep said regarding the race between Kentucky and Maryland to land the Harrison twins.
My gut in July was that Kentucky was the team to beat. I’m feeling now like Maryland closed the gap and is making its move.—Dave Telep
Now, this may be nothing at all, but it could evolve into something if Maryland continues to close the gap. Kentucky was thought to basically have Andrew and Aaron locked up. But it appears the the contest is much closer than everyone is assuming. I feel as if they will still land at Kentucky in the end, but the harder these other schools push for them, the more interesting this recruitment will be.
