Kentucky lands Noel on national TV

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Top prospect Nerlens Noel announced
Wednesday night he's joining Kentucky, bolstering the Wildcats'
hopes of defending their recent national championship and finishing
with a fourth consecutive No. 1 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-10 center from the Tilton School in New Hampshire
selected the Wildcats over Syracuse and Georgetown on Wednesday
night. He shaved a "UK" in the back of his signature flat top
hairstyle.

The Wildcats won their eighth title in school history just over
a week ago. Kentucky freshmen Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist
and Marquis Teague and sophomores Doron Lamb and Terrence Jones have until April 29 to decide whether to enter the NBA draft.

If they all depart, Kentucky's projected starting rotation is likely sophomores Ryan Harrow and Kyle Wiltjer and freshmen Archie
Goodwin, Alex Poythress and Noel.
