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.

I love covering the Kentucky Wildcats and even though I can't cheer on the outside when I go to games now, I am definitely cheering on the inside. You can follow me at @SAndersonNOB on twitter.

  1. Everyone talks about Kyle and expects him to have an awesome year and lead us to another title along with Nerlens, but nobody really talks about Poythress as much. I really expect Alex to be the go to guy in situations where Nerlens and Kyle are in foul trouble or where one of them is struggling shooting the ball.
