Allonzo Trier's transfer to Tulsa NOAH denied by homeschool association
Former Oklahoma City Storm basketball star Allonzo Trier learned Monday that his transfer request to Tulsa NOAH has been denied, leaving his immediate basketball future in uncertainty.
According to HSLive365.com, a website dedicated to covering homeschool sports, the request and subsequent appeal were denied because of National Christian Homeschool Championships rule that states: “A player must live at home with his/her parent, legal guardian or legally responsible person (in the case of foster children or other family hardships) in order to be considered homeschooled.”
Sources told The Oklahoman that Trier recently moved to Tulsa with a close family friend, while his mother remained at her home in Oklahoma City.
Tim Flatt, a former head coach of the OKC Storm now serving as the Executive Director of the NCHC, released the following statement:
“This is both a good day and a sad day for the NCHC. It is very good that once again the Eligibility Advisory Board has voted to maintain a high standard for transfers, as it is important that when private and public schools play our teams they can be confident that they are playing teams that are true local teams, not AAU teams that can recruit without restriction. On the other hand it most likely ends the homeschool career of Allonzo Trier who is one of the top players to ever play homeschool basketball.”
