LEXINGTON, Ky. — The NCAA hasn’t closed the book on prized Kentucky recruit Nerlens Noel’s eligibility just yet.
Sports Illustrated reported Wednesday that two investigators from the NCAA traveled to Noel’s former high school in New Hampshire earlier this month to meet with officials there about Noel’s past, along with Kentucky compliance director Sandy Bell.
Noels is the No. 1 recruit in the country, according to ESPN.com’s ESPN100. He is also one of the favorites to be the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA draft.
A person with knowledge of the inquiry told Sports Illustrated: “The NCAA’s questions focused on the cast of characters that surrounded Noel’s recruitment and how Noel paid for his unofficial visits."
