Georgetown Prospect Nerlens Noel Was Offered A Kentucky Fan's Wife At The Final Four

Every recruiting class has its ultimate prize. This year, that prize is Nerlens Noel, a senior from Everett, Mass. who played his prep ball at the Tilton School in New Hampshire.

Noel's recruitment has been full of controversy and has already been the subject of a New York Times opus. Noel's also been keeping a blog about his recruitment for ESPN. In his latest work, he talks about narrowing his choices down to Kentucky, Georgetown, and Syracuse; planning to announce his decision on April 11 on ESPN; and his experiences at last weekend's Final Four in New Orleans.

The money quote:

... I'm always just shocked at how dedicated Kentucky fans are. One man asked me if I wanted to take his wife home with me, ha ha. I couldn't believe it. I was like, "Nah, I'm good," but that's just how insane the fans were down there. Great atmosphere.

Now, that's taking extra benefits to a whole new level.
