Tyrek Coger will not attend Upper Room Christian Academy this year.
Upper Room officials confirmed to HighSchoolOT.com on Wednesday that Coger has transferred to Quality Education Academy in Winston-Salem.
The 6-foot-8, 245-pound center had previously committed to Missouri but later rescinded that commitment. Coger, a member of the Class of 2013, reports offers from Georgia, La Salle, Mississippi and Murray State, according to Rivals.com.
ESPN.com says he is interested in Missouri and NC State.
Upper Room Christian Academy is currently undergoing an extended review by the NCAA. The review has Upper Room graduate Rodney Purvis' college eligibility in question at NC State.
On Tuesday, NC State announced Purvis would be allowed to attend classes at the school, but his eligibility to play basketball has not been determined by the NCAA.
Quality Education Academy is undergoing "an extended evaluation" by the NCAA. According to the NCAA Eligibility Center website, Quality Education "is under an extended evaluation period to determine if it meets the academic requirements for NCAA cleared status."
The same message appears on the list of approved core courses at Upper Room.
Every high school must be reviewed by the NCAA to make sure initial eligibility requirements are met for graduating student-athletes.
