Nerlens Noel used his recruiting diary for ESPN to talk about his Kentucky visit this weekend. He talks about the differences between UK’s John Calipari and Syracuse’s Jim Boeheim. Noel visits Syracuse the week before.
I got there Friday morning and went to their practice for about an hour. I really liked the way they practice there. I just like the momentum they have in their practice. The practices are short but they get everything done that they need to get in. It’s really productive.
I went to the game the next day and the fans most definitely lived up to the hype. They were just real live and they chanted my name about eight times. It was so loud in there.
One of the fans came up to me and said “SEC girls love flattops!” I thought that was pretty funny. I really liked watching them play and sitting behind the bench I got a real feel about how they do it. coach John Calipari really gets on them when they make mistakes so they won’t make them again. I was impressed.
I got a chance to talk to coach Cal a lot during my visit. He talked a lot about how I could come in there and work hard and succeed. He talked a lot about playing at the NBA level and things like that. I thought we had a really good talk.
