The Harrison twins have arrived in Lexington.

Five-star freshman guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison — the subjects of much speculation over the summer — posed for pictures with UK fans at the popular off-campus restaurant Tolly Ho on Saturday. The Harrison twins were both considered top-10 prospects in the Class of 2013 and will be expected to start right away during their first season at Kentucky.

The Harrisons and James Young did not take summer classes at UK with the rest of their fellow freshmen, which led to speculation about their eligibility for the 2013-14 season. Young posted a picture of his official acceptance letter earlier this month and his coach and godfather recently told the Herald-Leader that he would be on campus in time for the fall semester. People close to the Harrison twins have given similar assurances in recent weeks.

UK has said all summer that all eight of the Cats’ incoming freshmen were expected to be on campus in time for the fall semester, which starts next week.

Berrios still considering UK

Highly touted wide receiver Braxton Berrios said Saturday that he has not narrowed his list of schools, despite some buzz that he was down to Oregon, Miami and South Carolina. The 5-foot-9 prospect said he is still considering those three schools, along with UK, Tennessee, West Virginia and Ohio State.

Rivals.com considers Berrios a four-star recruit and the No. 39 receiver in the Class of 2014. UK has commitments from three receivers for next year’s class: Thaddeus Snodgrass, T.V. Williams and Garrett Johnson.

South Carolina native Blake Bone — a 6-5 receiver — is planning to announce his college decision Tuesday. Kentucky is widely viewed as the favorite for Bone, also a four-star prospect.
