Scout.com national recruiting analyst says the NCAA inquiry into Nerlens Noel seems routine but academics could be an issue for the UK signee.
LEXINGTON, Ky. - The NCAA's interest in Kentucky signee Nerlens Noel seems routine, says Scout.com national recruiting analyst Evan Daniels. It's Noel's academics that are concerning.
Noel's house does not appear to be entirely in order just yet academically. That could keep him from gaining eligibility.
While something could come of the NCAA's investigation into Noel and advisers around him, the NCAA looking into high-profile recruits is standard operating procedure, according to Daniels.
However, both Noel's academics and what the New York Times reported
are wait-and-see situations.
