Saturday evening Cobden’s Noah Franklin announced he had made up his mind and would be committing to Southwest Baptist University, a DII school in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.

Franklin has been viewed as one of the top basketball prospects in the Southern Illinois region in the class of 2021 and helped lead the Appleknockers to their first regional title since 1964 in 2020 before falling to Woodlawn in the 1A Norris City Sectional Semi-Final.
