Local hoops: Myers, Noel thinking it over

Two Notre Dame Prep (Mass.) players with Baltimore ties are ready to embark on their college basketball careers. Now it’s nearing the time for the other two to decide where they’ll spend the next four years.

Former Lake Clifton standouts Cleveland Melvin (DePaul) and Antonio Barton (Memphis) have signed with their respective colleges, while former Forest Park point guard Antoine Myers and ex-Towson Catholic forward Levi Noel could end their recruitments at any time.

“Antoine is still wide open,” said NDP coach Ryan Hurd. “UNC-Wilmington, Seton Hall, Rutgers. It’s just going to be one of those things where he finishes his way through it and sees what’s really important to him.”

The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Myers is back in Baltimore now and mulling over his decision.

“We’re not going to put pressure on the kids,” Hurd said. “They have to live there for four years.”

Noel, a 6-foot-5 forward from London who spent his junior year at Towson Catholic, is considering two schools.

“Eastern Illinois [has offered], and I’m reasonably certain he has an offer from Mount St. Mary’s, or he will in the near future,” Hurd said.

Hurd said Noel has visited both schools. Now it’s just a matter of deciding where he’s more comfortable.

“I just think his versatility is what [both programs] like in him,” Hurd said. “He can literally play the 1 through 4 in most situations. You can’t find too many guys capable of doing that.”
