Nerlens Noel Recruiting 2012: Nation's Top High School Basketball Player Content Hours Before College Announcement

The world doesn't yet know Nerlens Noel's college decision, but the nation's top high school basketball recruit seems comfortable with his choice.

Noel tweeted Wednesday afternoon that he met with his family on Tuesday night and feels "they've helped me make the right decision thats best for me."

The tone of his tweet was quite different than it was the night before, when the center tweeted, "Toughest decision of my life. #StressThinking."

Noel, a 6-foot-10 athlete who has been compared to Patrick Ewing and Bill Russell for his shot-blocking abilities, will decide between Kentucky, Georgetown and Syracuse on Wednesday night during an ESPNU special that begins at 7:30 p.m. ET. Noel is expected to make his announcement at approximately 8:45.
