Cats or Terps?

During John Calipari's tenure at Kentucky, the Wildcats have found themselves in their share of high-profile recruitments.

Of the 15 five-star prospects that Calipari has brought to Lexington in his first four recruiting classes as UK coach, it's not a stretch to say that the recruitment of Richmond (Tex.) Travis twin guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison may be his biggest yet.

Top-10 prospects are not strangers to UK by any means, but ranked as the Nos. 2 and 3 players in the country, respectively, Thursday would mark the first time a pair of 5-stars committed to the Cats at the same time.

So the stakes are high. Very high.

And the same goes for Maryland. One could certainly make the argument that Thursday will mark the biggest day in Maryland basketball since the Terrapins won their first national championship in 2002 and its biggest basketball recruitment since Moses Malone in 1974.

So where do things stand less than 24 hours until the Harrisons are scheduled to announce their college decision on ESPNU at 5 p.m. Thursday?
