The Atlanta Tipoff Club released the finalists for the Naismith Boys' High School Player of the Year award yesterday, and among the four finalists was Everett native and Tilton (N.H.) center Nerlens Noel. The 6-foot-10 Noel -- who reclassified to the Class of 2012 last month and is now the nation's No. 1 overall player -- joined Bishop Gorman (Nev.) forward Shabazz Muhammad, Grace Prep (Texas) center Isaiah Austin and St. Anthony (N.J.) swingman Kyle Anderson among the finalists.
