After a four year high school career that made him into one of the country’s top guards, Noah Farrakhan has announced his commitment to play for Eastern Carolina University.
Farrakhan averaged 7.1 points and 2.4 assists per game during his senior season at The Patrick School after transferring back home to the Garden State from IMG Academy. The highlight of his senior season was a team-high 17 point performance to lift the Celtics to the Union County Tournament championship over longtime rival Roselle Catholic.
