Nerlens Noel made his decision not verbally, but visually. Noel had the UK logo shaved into his soon to be famous box haircut. Noel, considered the nation's top recruit, chose Kentucky over Georgetown and Syracuse, live on ESPNU. Noel's mother, who many thought was leaning towards Georgetown, likes the fit and that was good enough for Nerlens.
Noel, a 6-11 center from Everett, Mass., who plays for Tilton (N.H.) Prep, is known as the nation's best shot blocker. Ironically, should Anthony Davis go to the NBA, Noel could become a perfect fit to replace the Unibrow with the Box! Some see Noel as another Anthony Davis prototype.
Noel is known as "The Eraser" and arguably will make the biggest impact next season with Kentucky.
