Travis High School basketball standouts Andrew and Aaron Harrison announced their college of choice during a live ESPN broadcast, which took place in the school’s gymnasium in front of a cheering section comprised of students, band members, cheerleaders and parents. The twin seniors chose the University of Kentucky.

Andrew and Aaron are ranked No. 2 and No. 4, respectively, in the nation, and have been exciting players to watch at Travis High School. Last year, the Travis Tigers played in the state championship game.

“The Travis basketball program is extremely proud of Andrew and Aaron,” said Craig Brownson, head basketball coach. “They are excellent basketball players, but even more importantly, are outstanding young men and great representatives of Travis High School.”

Athletic Director Philip O’Neal agrees. “Fort Bend ISD Athletics is honored to have two young men with the talent the Harrison twins possess,” he said. “The respect these two young men show their family, school and classmates is evident as they walk the halls of Travis High School. Our athletic department is honored and proud to be associated with Aaron and Andrew Harrison, as well as Coach Brownson and the entire basketball staff.”

Additionally,  the USA Today High School Sports Preseason American Family Insurance ALL-USA Team has been unveiled and the Harrison twins have been selected.

Leading the ALL-USA team are Kentucky-bound twin brothers Aaron and Andrew. Aaron is a 6-5 shooting guard, while Andrew is a 6-5 point guard. They teamed up to lead the Tigers to a state 5A runner-up finish last year. Aaron averaged 18.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 2.7 assists while Andrew averaged 12.1 points, 6.0 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals.
