Nerlens Noel Update: NCAA Inquiry Opened On Noel

Syracuse might have dodged some NCAA trouble the second Nerlens Noel exposed an interlocked "UK" on the back of his head.

Noel is now the target of an NCAA inquiry, according to the New York Times.

The top recruit is being looked into because of some visits to universities that weren't paid for by the school, along with some questioned relationships with Chris Driscoll and Errol Randolph.

Driscoll is a former Providence assistant who was actually barred from the Tilton School campus, where Noel attended.

Randolph was a substitute teacher at Everett High School while Noel was there, and has alleged ties to a sports agency.

Nothing has been proven at all to this point, but it can't be a good sign that Noel is already in some hot water.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out with the NCAA, who has a pension for finding even the most minor of infractions.

Somewhere, Jim Boeheim is thinking about taking a deep sigh of relief.
