Griz recruit: Kyle Noreen

I thought I did something on this kid last summer but looking through my blog it does not appear that I have. If I am wrong consider this a pretty good update.

I have heard that the Montana basketball staff is recruiting Kyle Noreen from the Minnesota Transitions Charter high school MTC high school is a very small private school but unlike a lot of small prep schools I have written about recently this school is more known for it academics than basketball, with the one exception of producing D-1 basketball prospects whose last name is Noreen.

Kyle Noreen is a 6-5 junior wing for MTC high school, and will play the guard or small forward spot in college depending on which program he eventually signs with. His older brother Kevin is a 6-10 forward currently playing for Boston College, and is the current state of Minnesota all time scoring champion, and average well over 30 points a game his senior year. As a junior for MTC, Kyle is averaging 18.3 points, 8.5 rebounds, 8.6 assists, and 5.1 steals per game while shooting 54 percent from the floor this year.

Kyle is a multi-tooled player with good ball handling, perimeter shooting, very good hops and a solid defender. The big question on Noreen has more to do about the level of competition at MTC high school and he will adjust to the speed of the D-1 game.

Noreen also spots a 4.0 GPA and that has drawn the attention of a wide variety of schools. Noreen, I hear, currently has two offers on the table from Liberty and U. of Lafayette La., but has interest from New Mexico, Vanderbilt, VCU, Cornell, Harvard, Montana, Drake, Northeastern, Boston College, Wisconsin, Virginia, Stanford and a few more.

    I believe Kevin is now at West Virginia. Amazing what Minnesota Transitions has done. You could move them up to Class AAAA and they’d still go deep into the playoffs. They will probably walk away with the Class A title.
