Nerlens Noel is the nation's top defensive big man

Once you get past the hair, the first thing you notice about Nerlens Noel is that the 6-foot-10 Everett native can jump. He’s athletic and can dunk with ease, but the leaping ability is most noticeable on defense, where he menacingly roams the paint for The Tilton School (Tilton, N.H.). “He’s an uncanny defensive player,” says Tilton coach Marcus O’Neil. “He has unusual and exceptional quick-ness on defense.” Those attributes have made Noel the top shot blocker in the country regardless of class.
