Nerlens Noel Opts For Kentucky

Nerlens Noel, one of the top basketball recruits in the country, announced his decision in prime time on Wednesday night. Given an ESPNU special reminiscent of another basketball player, Noel revealed his commitment to play college hoops at Kentucky.

Noel announced his decision by revealing the "UK" logo which was shaved into his head.

The choice was down to three teams: Georgetown, Syracuse and Kentucky. All three teams coveted the high school prospect, a Tilton, MA, native. This is a recruiting coup for Kentucky, a program that is no stranger to luring the country's most talented high school players.

Noel measures 6'10" 210 lbs, a lanky high school kid who looks to have a bright future in college and the pros beyond that. He has been compared to Kentucky's Anthony Davis, the center who Noel replaces, who just powered his team to a national championship earlier this month.
