Number one ranked class A school Minnesota Transitions is enjoying an 18-3 season and junior Kyle Noreen is having the best year of his five year high school career. 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. Colleges have taken notice as two division one schools have offered and others are interested.
Kyle's AAU coach for the Minnesota Pump N Run Jeremy Miller was also a long time assistant at Minnesota Transitions and he follows Kyle's recruiting closely. Miller has high praise for Noreen's ability.
"At 6-foot-5 Kyle has a good handle, a good shot, he can dunk off a nice vertical, and he's a great defender," Miller stated. "He is a two (a shooting guard) and has a 4.0 grade point average. I wouldn't be shocked if he ended up at Boston College with Kevin."
Kevin is Kevin Noreen, a 6-foot-10 power forward signed with the Eagles and is also Kyle's brother. Kevin is also the all time leading scorer in the history of Minnesota prep basketball and he's averaging 37.5 points a contest this year. Feeding Kevin quite often is Kyle who is also going to play division one basketball himself.
"Boston College, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Stanford have shown some levels of interest," said Miller about Kyle's recruitment. "Denver has identified Kyle as their number one target in the country. Offers have come in so far from Liberty and Lafayette. Boston College will be in town to watch him soon.
"Kyle's list includes New Mexico, Vanderbilt, VCU, Cornell, Harvard, Montana, Drake, Northeastern, and about a dozen more."
Thursday night Kyle will be a guest of Minnesota's at the Wisconsin/Minnesota contest.
