Shabazz Muhammad, Nerlens Noel Decision: Live Analysis and Twitter Reaction

Matt King@TheRealMattKingFeatured ColumnistApril 11, 2012

Today is D-Day in college basketball.

Forget the national championship—that was over a week ago. Tonight, Shabazz Muhammad and Nerlens Noel will make their decisions as to where they will play college basketball. The nation's No. 1 and No. 2 recruits, according to Rivals, can change the landscape of college basketball depending on where they go.

Muhammad, a 6'6" guard from Las Vegas and McDonald's All-American MVP, is as hard a worker as he is talented, which makes him a very dangerous player. He is choosing between Kentucky, UCLA and Duke.

Noel is a 6'10'' center, who recently reclassified from 2013 to 2012. Of the Anthony Davis mold, he is an athletic freak, an incredibly long shot-blocker and a raw offensive talent. To put it simply, he doesn't have a ceiling. Noel will be choosing between Syracuse, Kentucky and Georgetown.

Stay with me all day as I give you all the up-to-date news and live-blog their decisions being covered on ESPNU. Fair warning: I am a Kentucky fan. I apologize.
