Mark Pope continues to be extremely successful on the recruiting trail, this time earning a commitment from a local Kentucky product.

Following a recent decommitment from South Carolina, local four-star wing Trent Noah has made the call for Kentucky and committed to the Wildcats, per CBS Sports college basketball insider Matt Norlander.

A reason for re-opening his recruitment was the potential for 'opportunities closer to home'.

Noah is from Harlan County (Ky.) where he finished his high school career with 3,707 points, fifth-most in Kentucky high school history. He averaged 29.9 points as a senior.

Noah put together a phenominal senior season that was capped off with a terrific playoff performance. Here were his stats:

vs Warren Central: 35 points, 11-of-19 shooting (6-of-8 from three), 11 rebounds

vs Campbell County: 48 points, 16-of-23 shooting (7-of-10 from three), 9 rebounds

vs Evangel Christian: 29 points, 5-of-13 shooting (3-of-7 from three / 16-of-18 from the free throw line), 10 rebounds

vs Lyon County: 17 points, 7-of-15 shooting (3-of-9 from three), 9 rebounds

His playoff averages were 32.3 points, 9.8 rebounds while shooting 56 percent from the field and 56 percent from three.

Noah is ranked the No. 103 overall player in the 2024 class in the 247Sports composite rankings. He is also the No. 2 player in Kentucky.

He joins four-star guards Travis Perry and Collin Chandler as the three members of Kentucky's 2024 high school class.
