UK Basketball Recruiting Update: What will Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad Do?

One can gather amazing amounts of information from the multiple social media sites of today and now we explore the Twitter chatter of two sought after recruits; Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad.

Very quickly the BBN will move on from the euphoria of winning the 8th NCAA National Championship in UK's storied history to these two remaining top tier recruits. If Kentucky lands both Nerlens Noel and Shabazz Muhammad UK will likely be projected as the number 1 or number 2 team in the nation next year setting the stage for another title run.

However, we will examine the Twitter chatter between these two elite recruits and see if we can draw any conclusions as to their current mindset.

One ominous, at least too me, Tweet from Noel was this:

April 2: Did Fab Melo Declare for the NBA Draft?

He is certainly keeping his eye on the big orange machine. He has a unique connection to Syracuse as well. Another ominous non-Tweet is the fact that he has not mentioned UK's National Championship at all.

We can't make any real conclusions so we will simply have to wait and see.

Shabazz has not congratulated UK's big win last night but on March the 31st he was rooting for the Cats in an open Tweet. I have some reservations about Muhammad considering the dire warning from the NCAA with regard to possible eligibility issues. However, he would make a great addition to next year's squad if he can buy into Calipari's strict team concept.
