Farrakhan, a 6-foot-2 guard, joined West Virginia’s team under former head coach Josh Eilert in August. Farrakhan could not play for the first nine games of the year due to a transfer waiver. Farrakhan got on the court vs. UMass on Dec. 16, scoring 15 points in his season debut. Farrakhan went on to average 7.7 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists through 23 games for the Mountaineers.

Farrakhan has one year of eligibility remaining.

Farrakhan played at Eastern Michigan under head coach Stan Heath for two years. Farrakhan appeared in 31 games for the Eagles, averaging 12.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists. The Hillside, N.J. native shot 43% from the field and 24% from three.

Noah Farrakhan began his collegiate career at East Carolina, committing as a three-star high school recruit. Farrakhan was formerly a five-star recruit at one point while playing at The Patrick School.

    Noah must be delusional and have a shyster for an agent if he ever thought he had a whiff of a prayer in the NBA draft. Jesse Edwards probably won’t be drafted. Raequan Battle definitely won’t be. They were the “leaders” on the team and rank well above Farrakhan in talent and production.

    Farrakhan could not even crack the starting lineup on a pitifully underperforming 9-23 team. He will be lucky to get an offer from a college team at the same level as the Mountaineers. Thinking he is an NBA prospect is crazy.
