Alex Poythress and Nerlens Noel Pre-Season All Freshman


The Sporting News released their All Freshman team and Kentucky’s Alex Poythress and Nerlens Noel are two of the five.

Alex Poythress, Kentucky , SF, 6-7/215

Poythress is one of those matchup nightmares, a 6-7 wing too strong for a small forward to defend and too quick for a power forward.

Nerlens Noel, Kentucky, C, 6-10/215

Ditch the Anthony Davis comparisons, please, and appreciate Noel strictly as a shot-blocking defensive force this season.

I am pretty sure Archie Goodwin will be on this team at the end of the year as well.

Mark it down.
