After making his announcement that he would sign with Kentucky, Nerlens Noel took to Twitter Wednesday night to do some recruiting.
The freshman-to-be center tweeted: "#BBN we needa get @aoriakhi34 to join !! Show him love !! #WeAreUK"
That would be Alex Oriakhi, the Connecticut forward who has received a scholarship release from the Huskies and plans to transfer. A member of UConn’s national title team in 2011.
Jeff Goodman of CBS Sports tweeted: "Somewhat surprisingly, Alex Oriakhi told CBSSports that he still plans to visit Kentucky next weekend after Nerlens Noel’s commitment."
