Rewind: After he and his twin brother Andrew committed to Kentucky, Aaron Harrison averaged 25 points, six rebounds and four assists per game in helping lead Travis High to a state championship. He's the No. 7 player and the top shooting guard in the 2014 Rivals150 and like his brother made the McDonald's All-American team.

Fast Forward: Harrison already has tremendous chemistry with his point-guard twin, which should help ease his transition to college. He's a reliable three-point shooter, dynamic slasher and a more-than-capable point guard. He should see time at both guard positions during his freshman season.

John Calipari says: "Aaron Harrison, big guard, can score the ball, should be and will be and is expected to be and will be demanded to be a lock-down defender. With his size, with his athleticism, one we can play a big zone. Two, we should be able to press because we're going to be so big with our guard play and whoever we put up there. But it will start with Aaron. We know what he can do scoring the ball, but we want him to other to do other things and again, help define his game."
