Reportedly, Kentucky’s Trent Noah, a standout from high school basketball, has committed to joining Mark Pope’s 2024 class for the Wildcats.

Another standout from Kentucky’s high school basketball scene, Trent Noah, has reportedly committed to playing for Kentucky under first-year coach Mark Pope. Noah, who previously committed to South Carolina before being released from his national letter of intent, put up impressive numbers at Harlan County High School, averaging 29.9 points and 10.4 rebounds per game. His exceptional performance led his team to a 34-5 record and a runner-up finish in the Sweet 16. Noah’s scoring prowess, shooting 56% from the field and 43% from beyond the arc, caught attention, especially after a standout game where he scored 48 points. He was recognized as the 13th Region Player of the Year and earned a spot on The Courier Journal’s Kentucky All-State boys basketball team.

Standing at 6-foot-6 and weighing 200 pounds, Noah concluded his high school career with remarkable stats, totaling 3,707 points and 1,500 rebounds, ranking fifth in state history for points scored. His coach praised him as a versatile player who excels at all aspects of the game and contributes to team success without forcing plays.

While there’s some discrepancy in his star rating among recruiting services, with some grading him as a four-star prospect and others as a three-star player, Noah is highly regarded within Kentucky’s basketball community. He’s ranked as the No. 105 player nationally in the 2024 recruiting cycle and is set to join a talented recruiting class for Kentucky, which already includes another local legend, Travis Perry, the state’s all-time scoring leader. Additionally, the Wildcats have bolstered their roster with various transfers and signees since Pope took over as coach.
