Vonleh commits to Indiana

According to multiple media outlets, Noah Vonleh became the sixth member of IU’s 2013 recruiting class Saturday evening.

Vonleh was at IU Friday and Saturday for his official visit and attended Friday’s season opener against Bryant, where he was seen wearing an IU hat. He has since cancelled the remainder of his scheduled visits.

Vonleh, a 6-foot-9-inch, 222-pound power forward, is a five star prospect according to Rivals.com and ranked seventh in the 2013 recruiting class. He is the third five star recruit of the Tom Crean era, joining sophomore center Cody Zeller and freshman guard Kevin ‘Yogi’ Ferrell. Vonleh is ranked higher than either Zeller or Ferrell were when they were coming out of high school.

Vonleh recently reclassified from the 2014 class. Originally from Haverhill, Mass., Vonleh attends New Hampton Prep in New Hampton, N.H.

The sixth member of IU’s 2013 class, Vonleh joins guard Stanford Robinson, forwards Troy Williams, Devin Davis and Collin Hartman and center Luke Fischer.

Syracuse and Ohio State were considered the other top candidates for Vonleh’s commitment.
