Andrew and Aaron Harrison, considered top five prospects in the class of 2013, will announce their college decision Thursday live on ESPNU, reports Adam Zagoria.

Both 6'5, the Harrison twins take care of backcourt duties: Andrew runs point and Aaron plays the two-guard. Each is considered the top prospect at his respective position, but the pair has decided to make their college decision in tandem. The Houston natives have Maryland in their top three, although it's realistically a top two: They first narrowed their list down to Maryland, Kentucky, Villanova, SMU and Baylor. Now it's just Maryland, Kentucky, and SMU, but it seems unlikely that the duo will choose to play for Larry Brown at the C-USA school, leaving just the Terrapins and John Calipari's Wildcats.

Terrapins coach Mark Turgeon has really impressed on the recruiting trail since arriving in College Park. The addition of the Harrisons would be major, even though the twins are likely only intending to play college ball for a single season.
