Nerlens Noel is going pro. Although his 2012-13 college basketball season ended early when he tore his ACL back in February, the Kentucky center just announced that he will leave school and enter the 2013 NBA Draft in June. He is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

"I especially appreciate the Big Blue Nation and all of the support, prayers, and well-wishes I've received from them during my rehab and decision-making process," Noel said in a statement a little while ago. "I'll always be a Wildcat!"

Your move, Jay-Z!
