Noi, a consensus three-star prospect, played last season for Montverde Academy Prep in Montverde, Fla. and was the No. 19 prospect in Florida, per 247Sports. He averaged 19 points per game at Montverde Academy and is ranked as the No. 7 player in the 2016 Australian Class rankings, per AusaHoops.com.
