ELITE PERFORMANCE ACADEMY basketball star NOAH KIRKWOOD has made a decision on his academic and basketball future - and all roads lead to HARVARD UNIVERSITY. Noah committed to play basketball for the Crimson next season, ending one of the most high-profile recruitments of an Ottawa basketball player ever.
The story was featured on IVY HOOPS ONLINE's recruiting update:
Noah Kirkwood, a three-star recruit from the Ottawa area, committed on Tuesday to Harvard for the fall of 2018. The 6′ 7″ shooting guard recently graduated from nearby Ashbury College High School, and will spend a year at Northfield Mount Hermon School (Mass.) prep school before heading to Cambridge. 247Sports notedthat Kirkwood had offers at Wichita State, Virginia, Texas, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, Tulane, GW, and St. Bonaventure. Verbal Commits listed additional offers at Villanova, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, and USC.
Kirkwood is a long-time friend of Harvard junior and fellow Elite Performance Academy training partner, Corey Johnson, according to the Ottawa Sun. As a member of Canada’s U-19 Team that won the FIBA U-19 World Cup this past summer, Kirkwood was teammates with Danilo Djuricic, a first-year Crimson forward.
