Basketball recruit Noah Vonleh moved up from the 2014 recruiting class to the 2013 class on Monday. The 6-8 forward from Hampton Boarding School in New Hampshire had enough credits to make the jump.
Vonleh was rated the number four prospect for the class of 2014 by ESPN, and for the class of 2013, he was placed as the seventh top player.
The forward instantly bolsters the lack of strong frontcourt players for this year’s class. The 2013 class is high on guards, not so much on forwards and centers, making Vonleh’s addition a smart move. His skill set and ability to bang it down low, plus shooting touch makes Vonleh someone who can play both forward positions. Vonleh is younger then most 2013 recruits, though older then the 2014 recruits. He wouldn’t of been able to play in the McDonald’s All-Star game in 2014 due to this.
The school’s who are most interested in the forward include: Syracuse, Kentucky, Kansas, Connecticut, North Carolina, Arizona and others. He plans on making up a list of the top 10-15 schools then work on trimming it down.
