The preseason All-American lists are rolling out and Nerlens Noel finds himself sitting comfortably on College Basketball Talk’s third team. Here is what NBC Sports’ website had to say about your favorite flattop:
The nation’s top incoming freshman is reportedly a better defensive player than Anthony Davis. (Read that sentence again. That boggles our mind.) The 6-10 center isn’t as skilled offensively, but his ability to control the game by his post presence is enough to warrant a spot here. How high will he fly?
Isaiah Canaan, Michael Snaer, Deshaun Thomas, Doug McDermott and Cody Zeller make up College Basketball Talk’s first team. Louisville’s Peyton Siva joins Nerlens on the third squad.
Basketball season is almost here.
