Departing ’Bama F
eyeing two schools

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Transferring Alabama player Justin Knox says he has narrowed his destination choices to North Carolina and Georgia Tech.
The 6-foot-9, 245-pound junior forward told reporters Thursday he will announce his decision next week.
He was granted a conditional release from his scholarship.
The university won’t allow him to transfer to a school on next season’s schedule or within the Southeastern Conference. He also can’t move on to UAB or Alabama-Huntsville, which are part of the same university system.
