Four-Star Point Guard Noah Farrakhan to Transfer

The New Jersey high school basketball landscape has taken a dramatic turn. Five-star 2020 point guard Noah Farrakhan has decided to transfer for the current season. Pat Lawless had the news first.

The former guard out of St. Benedict’s Prep in New Jersey will be attending the perennial powerhouse IMG Academy in Florida. One of the top prospects in New Jersey, as well as the northeast, Farrakhan will join the talented Kansas commit Silvio De Sousa.

Farrakhan isn’t the first tri-state guard to take his talents down south. Current Duke freshman, and the top point guard in the 2017 class, Trevon Duval also attended IMG Academy for his senior season.

With Farrakhan’s departure, the St. Benedict’s Grey Bees have a glaring hole at point guard. The loss of Farrakhan certainly doesn’t help in a quest for a Tournament of Champions title. With teams such as Ranney High and the reigning champs The Patrick School, the road just got a lot tougher.

While playing with Team Rio U16 on the Under Armour Grassroots summer circuit, Farrakhan averaged 9.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.3 assists per outing. Farrakhan is ranked No. 13 nationally, No. 3 at his position and No. 2 in New Jersey by ESPN.
