Analyst calls Wednesday "Massive day for UK"

Evan Daniels, recruiting analyst for scout.com, calls Wednesday a "massive day" for UK recruiting. The top two prospects in the country Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad plan to announce their college choice tomorrow night.
For coach John Calipari Daniels says, "I think it's a massive day and you know they're coming off a national championship but he had to hit the road right away to start recruiting because this is gonna have an effect on their team next year. If they weren't able to get a couple of these guys tomorrow, it could change the outlook of their season and if they were to get Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel then you're looking at trying to repeat. So this is definitely a big day and a huge day for recruiting, not only for Kentucky but for the national perspective.
Daniels said he had no feel for which way Noel and Muhammad are leaning. "This is the toughest spring signing period I've had to cover. I really am struggling to figure out where these guys are going and usually I can get these guys down to two maybe three schools but this is a tough one. They're really leaving guys guessing and they're great poker players and you know they're playing with everybody and by Wednesday night we'll be ready for this to come to an end."
Noel and Muhammad will make their announcements on ESPNU with coverage beginning at 7:30pm.
