Noel has excellent defensive ability in center field thanks to his range and solid arm strength. He's a well-above-average runner and was tied for the national lead with 51 steals heading into regional play. His swing gets big when he sells out for power, and he needs to shorten up more in two-strike situations, but his plate discipline has improved considerably in his three seasons. He might be up to a shift to second base, where he played as a freshman.
