08:17 AM ET 10.05 | John Calipari has done it again. [Calipari] issued more strong evidence for the case that he's college basketball's premier recruiter on Thursday when five-star twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison of Texas announced they'll play for the Wildcats. The identical 6-foot-5, 210-pound seniors chose the Cats over Maryland and Southern Methodist during an ESPNU-televised announcement at Houston-area Travis High School. "I think Coach Calipari presented a challenge for us, and he just told us from Day One it was going to be hard and going to be tough and he was going to push us every day," Andrew Harrison said during the broadcast before a gym full of applauding students. "That's what we really wanted to hear."

You would think Travis would have won the state championship with talent like this...but they couldn't handle Flower Mound Marcus in the finals last year. We'll see what happens this year.

I had a dream once about landing a couple of blonde twins.

I guess their chances of making it to the NBA someday are better with Calipari than at any other school they could have chosen.

They do have a few up there. Always wanted to get stationed at Keflavic but never pulled it off. Wife probably would have not approved of me bringing any blondes home anyway.

Wives are narrow minded like that.
