Maryland Basketball Recruiting: Harrison Twins Update

Largely considered the two most sought after recruits in the 2013 class, Aaron and Andrew Harrison (otherwise known as the Harrison Twins) will be waiting until Oct. 28 (their collective 18th birthday) to announce where they will be playing next fall.

On Saturday night, Aaron Harrison told SportsNet New York that three colleges remained the most persistent in trying to gain a commitment from the brothers, which included the University of Maryland.

"Baylor, Kentucky and Maryland, they pretty much contact us on a weekly basis,"Aaron Harrison Jr. told in the above video interview prior to going for 11 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists as the USA team beat the NYC team, 87-86, Saturday night in the Big Strick Classic at City College of New York.

"So I mean all those three, they pretty much contact us every day, every week."

In addition, SMU and Villanova are believed to still be in the mix as possible destinations but the three listed previously are considered the favorites at this time.

When asked about the potential of playing at Maryland, the boys expressed considerable interest.

"Maryland presents a lot of things," Aaron said. "It's close to my family, Coach [Mark] Turgeon recruited me when he was at Texas A&M. It's close to my family, I like the way they play."

Added Andrew: "It's a family atmosphere. The ACC is a great conference and Coach Turgeon is a good coach. Coach Bino [Ranson], I like those guys."
