March 11, 2012 - Moments ago, Class of 2012 center Nerlens Noel has spurned Georgetown, choosing instead the University of Kentucky. The announcement occurred nationally on cable television's ESPNU.
Noel would have joined D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera and Brandon Bolden in this upcoming Hoya haul. As it stands now, he teams with UK's incoming class of Archie Goodwin, Alex Poythress and Willie Cauley.
On the announcement show, Noel noted a number of factors as driving his Wildcate nation choice, including the school garnering national champion status this season. According to the New England native, "that's what pushed my decision over the top".
