Top prospect Noel spurns SU for UK

By MIKE LEVIN

WKTV - The top high school basketball prospect in the country, Nerlens Noel, spurned Syracuse and Big East rival Georgetown Wednesday night, instead choosing national champion Kentucky. 

The Everett, Mass. native made his choice live on ESPNU's "Signing Day Special," and his words mirrored the infamous Lebron James special "The Decision," as Noel said he'd be "taking his talents" to Lexington.

SU still has two big prospects coming next year, J-D center DuJuan Coleman, as well as power forward Jerami Grant, a native of Hyattsville, Md.
