Noel had narrowed down his choices to UK, Georgetown and Syracuse, and he announced his decision in an unusual way -- by shaving the logo of his chosen school into the back of his head. Here's a photo of Noel's Kentucky logo, which he revealed to a national television audience on ESPNU tonight.

Noel is originally from Everett, Mass., and he attended the Tilton School in New Hampshire. This was his junior year, but the 6-foot-11 center opted to graduate early and enter college this fall. He instantly vaulted to the top of the 2012 class.
