UK Clarifies Calipari's Statements On Noel Eligibility

10/17/2012 10:10 AM

John Calipari has spent his morning in Bristol, Connecticut making stops all over the ESPN family of networks to preview tonight’s premiere of “All Access: Kentucky”. During his appearance on Sportscenter with ESPN’s Hannah Storm, Calipari responded to a question on the eligibility of freshman center Nerlens Noel by saying, “He’s been cleared to practice. He’s been cleared to play in games. Everything is good to go.”

However, UK clarified the statement minutes later by noting that there is “No update on Nerlens Noel. We will not confirm eligibility of any student-athlete until the first day of competition.”
