Nerlens Noel Recruiting 2012: Decision To Be Made Wednesday Night

The time is rapidly approaching for Nerlens Noel to make a decision.

Noel will tell the world his basketball future this evening. The three teams still in the running are the Syracuse Orange, Georgetown Hoyas and John Calipari's Kentucky Wildcats.

Noel is a tremendous talent at six-foot-ten and 210 pounds. The lanky center is being compared to Anthony Davis, who obviously just led Kentucky to a national championship. If Noel goes to Syracuse, he would replace Fab Melo, who left for the NBA Draft.

Some pundits believe that Noel is a "significantly better shot-blocker" than Davis, which is unfathomable considering Davis was the best defender by a mile in college basketball last year.

Noel is a Tilton, MA native and says his mother will have a major say in where he goes to play basketball. If he decides to stay close to home, Syracuse would be the logical frontrunner going into Wednesday night.

It will all come together soon as three anxious programs await an answer.

Time: 7:30 p.m. ET (8:45 is when Noel is expected to announce)
