Top Hoops Recruit Claims UK Fan Offered Wife

You’ve gotta hand it to Kentucky fans.  Last week a Wildcat fan offered up his wife on in exchange for tickets to the Final Four.

Now, while doing a notebook for, top hoops recruit Nerlens Noel says that a Cat backer approached him on Bourbon Street and offered up his wife if the big man — presumably — would ink with his beloved Wildcats:

“I literally stopped hundreds of times and took dozens of pictures.  The fans were showing me so much love out there, and I definitely have to say that most of the fans were from Kentucky.

Now of course that had a lot to do with the fact that they were playing there, but I’m always just shocked at how dedicated Kentucky fans are.  One man asked me if I wanted to take his wife home with me, ha ha.  I couldn’t believe it.  I was like ‘Nah, I’m good,’ but that’s just how insane the fans were down there.  Great atmosphere.”

Was Noel kidding?  Was the fan kidding?  When it comes to Kentucky basketball mania, I wouldn’t be so sure.

Noel will announce his decision next Wednesday on ESPN, choosing between Kentucky, Georgetown and Syracuse.
