Are you ready Andrew Harrison?

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Harrison, has committed to the  University of Kentucky.Harrison has become one of the elite names in high school basketball. He has talent that is uncanny. He has the ability to score at will. He has a wing span that is 6-8; that wingspan will have him altering defender’s shots.

The Wildcats, look to become more dominant with a young point guard. Harrison has many positive talents that could help the Wildcats: his size, ball handling skills, transition game, and shot creating ability. Kentucky needs this kind of player. Kentucky seems to find players that love the spotlight, and they love to recruit players that have quick feet with a “framed body.”

As the 2013-2014 season approaches, there have been many concerns with Harrison. Harrison has to improve his outside shooting and his lack of defending defenders. Kentucky is known for its stiff and suffocating defense. They will get after the ball and have a habit of running a half court trap at times. The key for improvement is there.

Coach John Calipari is known to get on players and even bench them, if they are lacking on both sides of the ball. The Wildcats system is the right fit for Harrison. Harrison has to change his ways and views on basketball, if he wants to become the best. He is projected to reach the NBA by 2012. If he stays committed and improves his defense, personally I think he would be one of the greatest point guards in history.

Watch out for this young man, he is already taking this world by storm!
