Top High School Player Chooses Kentucky: Nerlens Noel, a center who is the No. 1-ranked high school basketball player by Scout.Com, has announced his choice of college by having it shaved into his head. Noel, who has written several columns for ESPNHS.Com, appears to have been swayed by the one-and-done championship UK won with this year's freshmen. "I'd definitely say it makes me think about Kentucky more," he wrote after the title game.

He'll need the services of a dedicated NCAA compliance guru and life adviser right from the get-go.
