Noreen, Thornton would not be eligible to play at UNC next season

Two high-school basketball players UNC has expressed interest in would most likely be ineligible to play next season because of ACC rules governing transfers within the conference, a league official said yesterday. Although Kevin Noreen and Marcus Thornton are still in high school, the problem would be that each signed a binding national letter-of-intent with an ACC school last November, said Shane Lyons, an ACC associate commissioner for compliance. The fact that they were released from the letters in the last six weeks because of coaching changes would not matter. (Winston-Salem Journal)
