Report: NCAA looking into top recruit Nerlens Noel

Published on May 9, 2012 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

According to the New York Times the NCAA is looking at top basketball recruit Nerlens Noel. Noel is rated the number one player by most recruiting services for the class of 2012 and to no shock he committed to John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats.

According to Pete Thamel of the New York Times the NCAA sent 2 assistant directors of enforcement to Everett high school in Massachusetts. Noel spent his first two seasons at Everett then he finished up his final two seasons at the Tilton School in New Hampshire.

Thamel explains many reasons why the NCAA could be looking into Noel. The NCAA could be looking at Noel’s so called advisors Chris Driscoll and Errol Randolph. These are the guys that usually create problems for the athletes with the NCAA Driscoll was banned from the Tilton campus. Noel also flied to Kentucky and Louisville on unofficial visits. Unofficial visits cannot be paid by the school. So there is some question where the money came from. There could also be some questions about Noel’s academics. According to Tilton’s headmaster Jim Clements he is on track to graduate but still has work to do. He said he was no sure if Noel would qualify academically for a scholarship.

Noel is almost the same player that Kentucky Anthony Davis was. Noel is the best shot blocker in the class of 2012. He is just a freakish athlete with great length. For a big man Noel is an excellent passer and his post moves have improved but he can get a little better there. He could also add some more strength because he gets to Kentucky. With all three Kentucky players headed to the NBA draft there is no question that Noel will be the star for the Wildcats next season. Just hopefully now he will get to suit up for the Wildcats.
