Andrew and Aaron Harrison didn't plan on being in Charlottesville, Va., this week for the NBPA Top 100 Camp.
But when the five-star twins were surprisingly cut from USA Basketball's U-18 team, the Harrisons left Colorado Springs and headed to the University of Virginia.
Reviews for the Maryland guard targets have been unsurprisingly glowing. Rivals.com's Eric Bossi highlighted Andrew Harrison in his Thursday recap.

The 6-foot-5 point guard from Houston used his superior size and skill to totally dominate a game with his playmaking for others. Harrison is in an ideal setting where he's usually surrounded by three athletes and a shooter. He knows exactly how to use them and specializes in getting them open looks in their comfort zones. Then, if need be, Harrison will score it as well.
The NBPA Top 100 Camp continues through Saturday. Other prospects mentioned in connection with Maryland that are participating include Philadelphia point guard Rysheed Jordan, Springfield Gardens, N.Y., forward Jermaine Lawrence, D.C. forward Junior Etou, Suitland guard Roddy Peters and Vermont Academy center Dominic Woodson.
* NBE Basketball Report had good things to report on Etou at the Top 100 camp.
Etou, a 6’7” rising senior forward was injured in the evening, but before that put in major work in an extra session with Kermit Washington, informally held after dinner. Over the course of about 20 minutes, Washington taught Etou a series of post moves that if mastered, would make him virtually unstoppable.
Obekpa, a shot-blocking phenom out of Our Savior New American (L.I.), was thought to be headed to Cincinnati before he pivoted and chose the Red Storm.
Collins is rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals.com. He also had offers from Cincinnati, UMass and Ole Miss in addition to LSU.
