Noel will make his decision tonight

Mrs. Tyler Thompsonover 9 years


In his latest ESPN diary, Nerlens Noel says he and his family will sit down tonight to decide which school he will attend, and anybody telling you he's already made up his mind is "crazy":
OK, so back to the announcement. Like I said, tonight we’re gonna have a group discussion and write things out and see where we’re most comfortable and what the best decision will be. The rumors about me already being committed are just crazy. Anyone who knows me knows my mom, Dorcina, has to sign off on any decision and that she will play a major part in any decision. So tonight is when I’ll talk to her about it all. Any “recruiting guy” who says he has some news from a “source” is funny, too, because the source would have to be me or my mom and they’re not talking to her and I don’t talk to anyone. Like I always say, only believe what you read here.
Nerlens then briefly describes each school he'll choose between, leaving Kentucky for last:
Then there’s Kentucky. Of course they’re coming off the national championship, but I’d look more at how I’d be able to fit in and how I’d be used there. I’d factor in what my role would be offensively, like Anthony Davis with a lot of lobs and catching it at the high post and things like that. Defensively, I think it’ll take care of itself.
Noel also debunks the theories going around that he and Shabazz Muhammad have talked about going to the same school; in fact, they haven't discussed schools at all. To close, he reiterates that he has "100 percent not made any decision yet." That's great and all, but I saw a flat top in my tea leaves during lunch...
