“Athlete” – Enough Said.
Leaving high school, Noah was a 4-star prospect who had totaled 1,353 rushing yards and 1,291 receiving yards in his two seasons. Listed as the #9 “Athlete” by Rivals and #13 by 247Sports, he had offers from Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, Penn State, Michigan State, and Pittsburgh among others.

Highs and Lows
Noah earned some playing time his freshman year and appeared in all 15 games. However, after rave reviews about his performance in the offseason leading up to his sophomore year, he broke his leg and ended up having to take a medical redshirt season.

Revenge Season

The following season, he came back with a vengeance and ranked second on the team in receiving by finishing with 402 yards on 32 catches and 7 touchdowns. While those stats might not be super impressive to some, 4 of the 7 touchdowns came early in the season in the game against the Sooners in which Noah had just 5 total receptions. Yep, 4 touchdowns on 5 receptions for 72 yards. Those stats also helped him earn an honorable mention All-Big Ten Conference nod.

Declaring Early

While his injury limited his time at Ohio State, it was also the reason he decided to declare early. “That was one of the biggest parts of my decision. When I was hurt, I realized how quickly football could be taken away. This is the dream of my childhood.”
