    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog

    Class of 2024 four-star small forward Trent Noah signed with Kentucky on Wednesday after obtaining his release from his National Letter of Intent to South Carolina on Tuesday

    Noah averaged 29.9 points per game during his senior season for Harlan County, where he capped his high school career having tallied 3,707 total points. That mark is also a school and county record.

    “Trent Noah is one of the elite shooters in this class,” Kentucky coach Mark Pope said. “He is a tough, hard-nosed player with a special physicality. As an eastern Kentucky native, Trent will bring a grit, toughness and determination to the program that is representative of this state. We’re looking forward to Trent joining this talented group.”

    During a senior campaign that saw Noah lead Harlan County to a state runner-up finish, he averaged 29.9 points per game on 56% shooting from the field, 43% from distance and 89% from the free-throw line. During the state tournament run, Noah increased his average to 32.3 points during the four games. He was tabbed a first-team all-state selection by both the Louisville Courier Journal and the Lexington Herald Leader, and he was the 13th Region Player of the Year by the Kentucky Association of Basketball Coaches.

    Noah, a four-star prospect ranking as high as No. 108 by 247Sports, hit 102 of 237 (43.03%) from 3-point range as a senior. He is the second overall prospect in the state of Kentucky, behind fellow Kentucky signee Travis Perry, who captured the state title with Lyon County, edging out Noah’s squad by a 67-58 score.

    Noah’s grandfather is Perky Bryant, who played running back at the University of Kentucky in the early 1960s.
