Basketball Recruiting: Noah Vonleh Commits to Indiana

Sources say Noah Vonleh is headed to Indiana to play for the Indiana Hoosiers.  Vonleh’s move to Indiana marks yet another top prospect who has denied North Carolina’s invitation to play their college ball in Chapel Hill.  UNC is down to two undecided prospects with offers in the 2013 class, center Kennedy Meeks and #1 prospect Andrew Wiggins.

Vonleh reclassified from the 2014 class and is a consensus five star prospect rated on everybody’s top 10 list.   Vonleh is listed as a power forward but has the versatility to play the perimeter at the small forward position also.  With Isiah Hicks already committed in 2013 and the 2012′s class additions of Brice Johnson and Joel James it’s likely that Vonleh saw more of an opportunity to play a larger role immediately with the Hoosiers.

Meeks recently trimmed his list down to two programs Carolina and Georgetown and has visited Carolina on at least three occasions in the last month.  Rumors have Meeks making a decision soon and could sign this month.  The local product has been rumored to be leaning towards Carolina and at this point UNC needs him to make the class whole with just Hicks and point guard Nate Britt committed.

Recent news on Wiggins has him taking his time to make a decision and he will likely sign in the spring. It is my belief that the more time Roy Williams has to go after Wiggins the better after he recently stated that his recruitment is wide open and downplayed the notion that Kentucky and Florida State are the runaway favorites for his services.
