Aiken is the third four-star to choose Harvard, joining forwards Chris Lewis and Robert Baker Jr. His commitment bolsters a class that could very well wind up in the Top 20 at year's end. With four straight NCAA Tournament appearances, including two wins, and among the best academics that Division I basketball has to offer, it makes sense that the Crimson is a factor with the elite basketball players who also have top academics.
