Homeschool basketball star Allonzo Trier and his mother will move to Tulsa to make him eligible at NOAH
The wild and confusing situation surrounding Allonzo Trier’s homeschool basketball future appears close to being resolved.
Tim Flatt, the executive director of the National Christian Homeschool Championships, which oversees the national homeschool championship tournament, told HSLive365.com that Monday night Trier’s mother intends to move to Tulsa, which would make the sophomore shooting guard eligible to play for Tulsa Northeast Oklahoma Association of Homeschools (NOAH) in the coming season.
After playing the last two seasons for the homeschool Oklahoma City Storm, Trier moved to Tulsa with a family friend, but his transfer request to join the NOAH Jaguars was denied last week, because his mother, Marcie, still lived in Oklahoma City.
“After confirming the move of the Trier family to Tulsa, Allonzo Trier will be eligible to play for Tulsa NOAH during the 2012-13 basketball season,” Flatt said. “This has really been a good process for the NCHC. We are happy that NOAH made a proper appeal, the Eligibility Advisory Board made a ruling based on the guidelines, NOAH accepted the EAB ruling and Marcie Trier was able to make a huge sacrifice and move to Tulsa to meet the NCHBC guidelines.”
Trier averaged 24.5 points per game last season and became the first freshman homeschool player in the country to surpass 1,000 points. After a strong summer with the OKC-based Athletes First AAU team, Trier received several scholarship offers, including all four in-state schools and other top programs around the region.
