NBA Scout on the Harrison Twins "They Should Stay in School"

With the Kentucky vs. Louisville match-up a mere 18hrs away, NBA scouts are starting to find their way to Lexington. One such scout talked with Zagsblog and discussed what he and all other scouts will be looking for while in town.

Of course they want to see Julius Randle, Willie Cauley-Stein and Montrezl Harrell go against each other as each of them are projected to be in the lottery portion of the 2014 NBA Draft. However, when the conversation switched to talking about the Harrison Twins, things got a little interesting.

Coming out of high school, Andrew Harrison was a guaranteed "one-done" player with his twin brother, Aaron being a toss up. Fast-forward a few months and things aren't as certain for the Harrison's as they were before the season started. We have witnessed Andrew and Aaron both struggle (they aren't the only ones) early on this season and apparently their draft stock has taken somewhat of a hit because of it.

While talking to Zagsblog about the Harrison Twins, the same NBA scout said "They should stay in school, both of them". 

Now I am in no way a scout for an NBA team nor do I claim to be, but I can't say that I don't agree with this guy. If you've watched a minute of Kentucky at all this season you would know just what this guy is talking about. Andrew and Aaron both are good players and in time will certainly reach the NBA and possibly be lottery picks, but if the draft was next week I wouldn't be alone in saying that I wouldn't be shocked to see one or both of the twins slip into the second round. That's not to say that they can't turn things around this season and play their way into the first round possibly even the lottery because the talent is there it's just a question of whether or not they can grasp what Cal is teaching them in one season. 

If they can't, then this team will never reach it's full potential….
