But now the former Poly Prep (N.Y.) star has gotten the confidence he can play with the big boys and developed into a full-effort guy who also brings a high skill level to the table.
When Noah left to meet his father, former star tennis player Yannick Noah, for a month-long vacation in the Caribbean in late-July, he was at a list about 20 long.
Noah visited Florida two weeks ago and also took a trip this past weekend to Virginia. He will head to College Park this coming weekend and then be ready to make a decision.
``Florida probably leads right now, but that's partially because he's already been there," Long Island Panthers coach Gary Charles said.
Add Lawrenceville coach Ron Kane to Noah's ever-growing list of supporters.
``He's fit in so well and acclimated himself so quickly to the community," Kane said. "He's handled the whole process so well with coaches."
