    Nerlens Noel 2013

    Okay this thread is not meant to get anyone's hopes up, but I need to mention it.

    I was talking to Georges Niang today on Facebook.. and we were talking about random things, and I brought up Nerlens name. Evidently Georges is trying to get him to ISU. I asked him the chances and he said, "They real good I been talking to him we will see how they look after july"

    It excites me, but with all the other offers and him being Number 3 overall on ESPN you can't get any drastic ideas.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2xagIB1aOo]YouTube - ‪Nerlens Noel Best Defensive Player in The COUNTRY‬‏[/ame] AT 0:44 He rejects Austin Rivers

    Anyway just thought I'd share that this is unofficial stuff, but its inside info. I'll keep everyone updated.

    Have we offered?

    I think we may be a few victories away from him coming our way. Georges may be persuasive but he's also got guys trying to talk him into going to the Kentuckys of the world with them.

    Re: Nerlens Noel 2013

    What is going on in July that could change his mind? Just the recruiting period in general or something else?

    Regardless its obviously good that we may be in on a talent like him. Hopefully he can see the future of the program because by the time he would be signing the season will just be getting started.

    I heard there is a good chance he goes overseas depending on what happens with the new CBA.

    Don't get my hopes up!! Not for Wayne Seldon either!

    IF. IF! IF!!! We got either if those players, we will look back at Georges as a HUGE recruit.

    Can you imagine how aggressive our guards could play with him manning the post? A quick guard like Sledge could have a field day going for steals and playing aggressive defense knowing he had protection like that behind him.

    I like how he denied Austin Rivers in that video. He needs to put some weight on his body, but he certainly have good defensive skills.

    Ummmm....Not to play compliance police here, but isn't he still a recruit until he signs a LOI?

    Isn't Facebook and other sources of communication with recruits supposed to be off limits?

    It is probably fairly unenforceable(sp) if it is. Kind of like if driving with a boner was illegal.

    I thought it was just frowned upon...

    I really dont understand this...family can persuade a player where to go and a person on facebook cannot ask about a guy. If they are friends on facebook and talk on the regular then why should it be a violation?

    It is if you haven't had a prior connection to the player in question. Judging by the OPs time of joining CF and the fact that he was talking with him on facebook, I would say there's a chance that's the case.
