A new post on ESPN's recruiting website makes it sound like Nerlens Noel had to talk his mom into Kentucky. ESPN asked some of the Jordan Brand Classic participants about their commitments, and Noel admitted that his mother favored Georgetown:
Nerlens Noel Tilton School (Tilton, N.H.), C Signed to: Kentucky The school that came in second for me was … “Georgetown. My mom really liked them a lot. She was sold on them. She loved how family-oriented they were and, like I said in my blog, my mom’s opinion was what mattered most to me. We had to sit down and talk and I had to really get her to take a longer look at Kentucky. Then when she did she started to like them a lot, too. But it was pretty close, man. It was pretty close.”
Alex Poythress said he like Vanderbilt, but went with his gut in the end:
Alex Poythress Northeast (Clarksville, Tenn.), SF Signed to: Kentucky The school that came in second for me was … “Vanderbilt. It was so close. They were recruiting me for the longest and I honestly had the best feel for that school. But in the end I just had to go with my gut feeling. But it was close.”
