Aaron, Andrew Harrison returning to Kentucky for sophomore seasons

Jamie Squire

The Harrison twins have decided to remain in school, per Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

What seemed like a foregone conclusion many months ago has been turned upside down, and the results for Big Blue Nation could not be better.

Following an historic run to the National Championship Game, the Kentucky Wildcats seemed to be set to say goodbye to the likes of Julius Randle, James Young, and the coveted Harrison twins. But now, as the day to fully declare for the NBA Draft looms, it turns out that just two of those four will be heading to the pros.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Aaron Harrison and Andrew Harrison are returning to Lexington for their sophomore seasons.

Wojnarowski also added that "The [Harrison] twins have been torn, going back and forth on staying or leaving Kentucky."

It would appear, though, that the decision that they have made has gone against what many were expecting last fall.

The significance of this certainly looms large for both the Southeastern Conference and the entire country as well. While the six game sample size we got from Kentucky in the NCAA Tournament might have been a mirage given how they performed over a longer period of time during the 2013 season, another summer of camp and preparation could give the Cats a dominant presence about them as the 2014 season creeps ahead.

The thought of the twins coming back with several other of Kentucky's role players from this club, as well as the incoming recruits, is just scary.
