Does Fab Melo’s Decision To Go Pro Play A Role In Nerlens Noel’s Decision?

If Noel stays true to his word, then Fab Melo deciding to go to the NBA makes Noel's decision, Syracuse.

With less than a couple hours left until Kentucky and Kansas take the floor for the 2011-12 NCAA Championship game both, Kentucky fans and coaches will have another thing on their mind; Nerlens Noel. Where will he go?

Last week, Noel released a statement saying that he has cut his list down to three teams: Kentucky, Georgetown, and Syracuse.

Now the statement really hurt Syracuse fans as Noel, around December, said that if Center Fab Melo declared for the NBA draft, that he would sign with Syracuse. However, his statement of his three teams came to Orange fans as a shock as it was pretty much clear that Melo was headed to the NBA with all the off the court issues that he was dealing with. However, Melo didn’t technically declare yet, so for Orange fans to get question or get angry with Noel about cutting his list, were wrong.

Now late last night, Orange fans would get some bitter-sweet news as Center Fab Melo according to several sources, signed with an NBA agent, Arn Tellem.

“Fab Melo has signed with Arn Tellem, according to multiple sources, which means he obviously isn’t returning to Syracuse, as expected,” said Jonathan Givony of Draft Express.

This news now meant that Noel would choose Syracuse as his school to sign with (saying that what he said back in December was still true).

Well even if it wasn’t still true, Nerlens Noel still cared about Melo’s decision enough to post it on twitter, as he asked, “Did Fab Melo declare for the NBA Draft?”

Then a couple hours later, Noel’s best friend, Syracuse guard, Michael Carter-Williams, who has been said to be another reason why Noel would choose Syracuse, mentioned Noel in a tweet saying, “@NerlensNoel3 all I know is Cuse fans have shown you the most love by far!!!!!”

Now Noel has yet to decide where plans to go next fall or he has yet to update the status of his decision. However, if what he said back in December, about Fab Melo declaring was really true. Then expect Nerlens Noel to be suiting up in a Syracuse Orange jersey next season.
