Even if Andrew and Aaron Harrison leave Kentucky and declare for the NBA Draft following this year, college basketball will still have at least one set of twins by those names playing in the same backcourt during the 2015-2016 season.
On Sunday, twins Andrew and Aaron Robinson both committed to Quinnipiac. This was first reported by Adam Finkelstein of ESPN and the New England Recruiting Report. The Robinson’s coach, Tom Espinosa later confirmed the commitments via Twitter.
The Robinsons spent last season at Springbrook High (Maryland). The 6-foot-5 Andrew averaged 17.5 points per game last season. Aaron, who is an inch shorter, tallied 11.0 points a game. In May, the two decided to enroll at Putnam Science Academy (Connecticut).
“We definitely do want to try to go to the same school, which is one of the reasons we decided to go with a prep year,” Andrew told the Washington Post back on May 2. “But it depends on the situation. If it’s a good fit for both of us, we definitely want to do that and go to the same school. But if it’s not a good fit for each of us, we’ll go to separate schools. We want both of us to have a good college experience, so it’s all about the fit really.”
Andrew entered the grassroots circuit this summer with multiple Division I offers from low to mid-major schools. Aaron had mostly Division II interest.
Tom Moore has had recent success recruiting the New England prep schools. Three of his five freshman came from the prep school ranks, including Chaise Daniels, the in-state power forward who also attended Putnam Science Academy.
The brothers Robinson are the first commits in the Class of 2015 for the Bobcats.
