The nation's No. 1 recruit, Nerlens Noel, has committed to Kentucky over Georgetown and Syracuse, giving UK the No. 1 recruiting class for a fourth straight year.
CHARLOTTE, NC - Nerlens Noel, the top-ranked recruit in the class of 2012 according two of the three major recruiting services, chose Kentucky over Georgetown and Syracuse during an ESPNU signing day show Wednesday night. His addition gives UK the No. 1 rated recruiting class for a fourth straight year.
Noel is regarded by some analysts as an even better shot blocker than the Cats' Anthony Davis, who set the NCAA freshman record for blocks and is projected to be the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
Noel joins fellow highly-touted UK signees and McDonald's All-Americans Alex Poythress and Archie Goodwin along with big man Willie Cauley-Stein.
