Trent Noah is committed to Kentucky Wildcats basketball


Mark Pope and the Kentucky Wildcats have been outstanding when it comes to adding players from the transfer portal to the roster for next season.

However, Pope has now moved on to the high school level as another freshman will be joining the team next season.

On May 7, South Carolina native and Harlan native Trent Noah announced that he had been released from his NLI with the Gamecocks and would be resuming his recruitment.

Now Noah has decided he will stay in state and play for the Wildcats next season. According to Matt Norlander of CBS SportsNoah chose Kentucky!

This means that the squad for next season consists of 10 scholarship holders.

Noah is currently the No. 103 overall player and the No. 25 overall small forward. He is ranked second in the state behind Travis Perry, who is also a Wildcat.

The 6-foot-6 forward averaged 29.9 points on 56% shooting (43% on 3s) and 10.4 rebounds per game for Harlan County last season, breaking the school's all-time scoring record and finishing fifth all-time Times in KHSAA points scored.

He also led Harlan County to the school's first appearance in a state championship game before losing to Perry and Lyon County.

This is a very good addition to Pope's roster and will certainly be a fan favorite since he is from the state. Noah can sit and develop before potentially becoming a significant contributor down the road.
