KSTV Talks To Nerlens Noel

Here it is, folks.

The flattop fella sat down in front of his Skyping device after school yesterday for an interview with Matt Jones and KSTV. Check out all the good things he had to say about his decision to commit to Kentucky, the love of Big Blue Nation, and everything else a UK fan would want to know about.

A few of the highlights:

— Said the flattop is next in line with Wall’s dance, Jorts, and Davis’ unibrow

— Models his game after Kevin Garnett

— Said it’s a good percentage Bennett “can come” to UK

— Owns three season of Kid ‘N Play on DVD

Enjoy.

    Off topic but how much is TJ charging per autograph on his autograph tour? A friend is offering to get me one in Owensboro but I wanted to know how much he was charging before giving her an answer. Thanks!

    Kid N Play with a laugh and a smile telling you here’s the number that you gotta dial. For the latest info get hip to what we say, we’re Kid N Play now everybody say Oh la oh la eh.

    Does anybody else remember that commercial? Can’t quite remember the whole thing but I remember enough of it so I must have heard it a thousand times.

    So that announcement was the first time I have ever leaped from the couch because of a recruiting decision. I was pretty confident he was going elsewhere. I think next season is going to be similar to 2 years ago. It will be a rough go of it at times, but by Feb and March these guys will be ready to make it happen. It’s going to be a lot of fun watching this group grow together (especially of we are able to get commitment from Bennett). Even the returning guys are “fresh faces” in a sense. Harrow has yet to see the floor and both Hood and Wiltjer have seen limited action. This will be fun.

    Really think this kid will end up being my all-time favorite!
    Poythress, Goodwin and Cauley-Stein seem to be great kids and a lot of fun too. They seem to be bonding with each other and the fans already. Can’t wait till November!
    Which is saying a lot considering the awesome guys we had this year.
    Go CATS!!!

    Didn’t realize they charged for their autographs. You can have mine for free.

    Garnett? I was thinking more Mutombo.

    I’m glad he’s cool with being called ‘flat top feller,’ because that was going to be a hard nickname to lose.
