The Indiana High School Athletic Association is investigating the transfer of Lamous Brown from Chicago Harlan to Bishop Noll this school year.

The 6-foot-10 junior's former school has a lot of questions about how he ended up at Noll. Harlan head coach Ervin Bryant said no one from his school ever received any transfer paperwork and consequently no one at Harlan signed any paperwork.

"He transferred in August, I think it was August 15," Bryant said. "We were never contacted by Bishop Noll or any school to send his transcripts. We never did send transcripts or grades."

Bryant also said academics were an issue with Brown.

"If Lamous Brown were still at Harlan, he would not be eligible until January (2013)," Bryant said.

Brown is the third Illinois prep basketball player to transfer into Noll in the last three years. In 2010-11 it was point guard Adonis Filer who came to Noll from Mt. Carmel. Filer led the Warriors to the 2011 Class 2A state championship game and now plays at Clemson.

In 2011-12 it was point guard Dean Danos transferring from Aurora Christian.

Attempts to reach Bishop Noll boys basketball coach Drew Trost and Warriors athletic director Marianne Galfano was not successful. Multiple phone calls were not returned.

It is unclear who ran the Warriors' first practice of the season on Monday.

IHSAA commissioner Bobby Cox had heard a lot of the conversation around this controversy, but Cox would not deny or confirm anything.

"We've heard what you have heard," Cox said. "We are investigating it."
