Big Comparisons for Kentucky Trio
If people try to tell you that Kentucky’s incoming class is not as talented as any of the past 3 then tell them to read Fox News.com.
Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel, Alex Poythress, and Archie Goodwin are compared to 3 names I am sure you all know.
[I][LEFT][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial]Kentucky: Calipari might have won the lottery two years in a row as the Wildcats’ Nerlens Noel is predicted to be just as strong an interior defender as Anthony Davis was in 2011-12. Noel has a cloud hovering over him however, as the NCAA has inquired about his high school career, but no serious allegations have been made to this point. Alex Poythress earned a spot in the McDonald’s All-American game after proving to be one of the top power forwards of the incoming rookie class.
[B]The Noel-Poythress duo could be the best frontcourt rookie tandem in college basketball since Chris Webber and Jawan Howard entered Michigan together. Calipari added another McDonald’s All-American in shooting guard Archie Goodwin, whose style resembles that of former Marquette Golden Eagle and current NBA superstar Dwyane Wade. [/B]
Kentucky also added a solid complimentary piece in Willie Cauley, who despite being an afterthought to this star-studded class, has the athleticism and size to make an impact. Cauley developed rare speed and agility for a player his size while also starring on Olathe Northwest High School’s football team as a wide receiver. NC State transfer Ryan Harrow will be eligible to take over the point guard duties this season after sitting out 2011-12 due to NCAA transfer rules. Kentucky added former Wright State Raider Julius Mays to the puzzle recently. Mays was named the 2012 Horizon League Newcomer of the Year after he led WSU in scoring with 14.1 ppg and more importantly, will be eligible to play immediately for the Wildcats and provide much-needed experience and leadership.[/FONT][/COLOR][COLOR=#000000][FONT=arial]
