“[The Connecticut visit] was good,” Noel told NRS, “it was my first time their and it left a good impression.” He had the chance to meet with head coach Jim Calhoun, talk with players and tour the campus among other things. “I spoke with the whole staff about how they enjoyed watching me play this summer and improve as a player.”
Noel was also impressed with one thing in particular. “My favorite part of the visit was how much interest they expressed in me,” he said. “I really liked that.” In fact, he liked it so much that he went on to say that UConn has a good chance to land on his list of 15 when he comes out with it. “They have a good shot now to be on my list after my visit,” Noel said.
Noel is also visiting Syracuse this weekend and is pretty excited for it. Said Noel, “It’s my second time visiting them, but I’m looking forward to it. I just want to take another look.” Syracuse is another school that Noel says has a good chance to be on his list.
