Nerlens Noel is on a path eerily similar to the path Anthony Davis took to where he is today. As SLAM Magazine points out in its Anthony Davis cover issue, that path includes recruiting drama created by the national media that he has no control over, whatsoever.
Luckily for Nerlens, he has someone he can talk to about it. That someone is Anthony Davis.
“He just told me, ‘Don’t let the media get to you,’” Noel told SLAM Magazine. “If they’re gonna try to make all this publicity out of it, just come and ball, focus on academics and basketball. That’s it.”
If he does that, Noel has a good shot at continuing down Davis’ path, including winning a national title at UK and becoming the No. 1 draft pick after his freshman season.
No one will remember any talk about AAU coaches and advisors then.
