It's almost that time.
Noel is an absolute force of nature at six-foot-ten and 210 pounds. The lanky center would provide an Anthony Davis type presence in the middle to replace Fab Melo, who jumped to the NBA Draft.
Some have actually said that Noel is a "significantly better shot-blocker" than Davis, which is almost impossible to imagine considering Davis was the best defender as a freshmen in college basketball since Patrick Ewing.
Noel is a Tilton, MA native and says his mother will play a key role in where he goes to school. If he chooses to stay close to home, Syracuse would appear to be the leader going into Wednesday night's proceedings.
It will unfold in the coming hours as three anxious programs await an answer.
Time: 7:30 p.m. ET (8:45 is when Noel is expected to announce)
