Days away from a decision

Tilton (N.H.) School center Nerlens Noel has had a crazy recruiting process that saw him re-classify from 2013 to 2012. Now it is only a matter of days before he picks his school.

His choices are down to Syracuse, Kentucky, and Georgetown.

A couple weeks ago he told Rivals.com's Jerry Meyer that out of the three schools nobody is sticking out more than any other.

"Right now they are just sort of the same," he said. "After my mom visits with all of them, I will sit down over next couple weeks with her and figure out what the differences are and which coach I have the most trust in."

That schedule is right on track.

This week Noel is down in New Orleans and Steve Jones of CatsIllustrated.com spoke with him to learn about the decision date.

"I'm going to make my decision on April 11," Noel said. "I'm going to make it on the "Recruiting Nation" show (on ESPNU) down in Charlotte before the Jordan game."

With the date set Jones also asked Noel if he had already picked his school that he will announce for.

"No, I haven't." said Noel.

Next Wednesday the college basketball world will know where Nerlens Noel will play next season.
