Georgetown Basketball Recruiting: Nerlens Noel Chooses Kentucky

Highly touted high school basketball recruit Nerlens Noel has decided that he will commit to play basketball for Kentucky, despite the fact that earlier reports suggested that he was going to Georgetown. This is a big get for John Calipari, as Noel was one of the most highly sought after recruits in the country. Due to his 6'10" frame, Noel has been compared to the likes of Anthony Davis, who dominated play during the 2012 NCAA Tournament for the Wildcats.

Many expect that Noel will be one of the better big men in college basketball next season and should help Kentucky to potentially be favorites to repeat as NCAA Tournament champions

Noel had his choices broken down to Georgetown, Kentucky, and Syracuse before ultimately deciding on Kentucky.
