Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel on what he learned from Anthony Davis, his heritage, the bond he built with one Wildcat over the summer and more.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel has been settling into Lexington, having already found a "nice chicken spot" thanks to former Wildcat Anthony Davis, who introduced Noel to Indi's on North Broadway recently.

Noel got to campus later than the rest of his teammates due to academic work he needed to finish before he could enroll at UK.

Noel, however, was able to get a head start on building a relationship with at least one of his teammates.

Noel and UK sophomore Sam Malone are both Boston natives and became close by hanging out over the summer.

Malone says he and Noel have become like brothers, and do a lot of trash talking to one another, like brothers. Malone points out that Noel's signature resembles a third grader's.

Beyond Boston, where Noel was born and raised, Noel has roots in Haiti. He has a tattoo of the number 509 on his right forearm, which he says represents the country in which both of his parents were born.
