According to his high school’s Twitter account, Mercer County (KY) High School point guard Trevon Faulkner has verbally committed to Northern Kentucky. The 6-4, 180-pounder chose the Norse over offers from Western Kentucky, Wright St., Middle Tennessee St., Murray St., LA-Lafayette and Valparaiso. He becomes the first member of John Brannen’s 2018 recruiting class.
Faulkner, a 2018 Kentucky Mr. Basketball candidate, also excels on the football field where he plays wide receiver and defensive back.
