HOUSTON -- The Houston Cougars' top two scorers have been granted releases to transfer to new schools. But the releases come with conditions.

Sophomore guard Danuel House tells KRIV-TV that he and junior forward TaShawn Thomas agree to Houston's conditions barring their transfers to any school in the American Athletic Conference or on the Cougars' schedule for the next two seasons.

But he says they plan to appeal to the NCAA a stipulation barring them from moving to any Texas school.

Houston businessman Erskine McDaniel, a spokesman for both players, says they'll also appeal to the NCAA for a waiver that would allow them to play immediately, Customarily, transfers from one Division I school to another must sit out a season.
