Recently, Noah Vonleh announced his decision to move up from the junior class and into the Class of 2013. Although some might think it was a risky since it is the middle of official visit season, but it created Vonleh to take immediate official visits.
According to Pete Hutchins, Vonleh’s high school coach, Vonleh is down to six colleges: Ohio State, Indiana, Syracuse, Georgetown, North Carolina and Connecticut. Hutchins also states that Indiana, Syracuse, Georgetown, and Ohio state are especially pushing for Vonleh. Hopefully, North Carolina and Connecticut will push more for Vonleh because I can see the New Hampton star as a Tar Heel or a Husky.
Uconn is in an interesting situation because of the coaching change.
“Noah is obviously aware of the history and tradition at Connecticut and he saw some of that firsthand at their Midnight Madness last year,” says Hutchins.
Kevin Ollie, Coach of Connecticut, has built a solid relationship with Vonleh and I believe it might give Uconn an edge over the other colleges pursuing Vonleh.
“Kevin Ollie’s a very dynamic person and coach, and he’s done a good job relating to Noah and everyone in his corner believes they’ll do a great job. As a local school, if Noah decides to not go away far from home, Noah thinks they would be a great choice,” says Hutchins.
This month Vonleh has a very busy schedule. He will being his visits with Syracuse the weekend of November 3 Indiana would be next on the list the following weekend.
“it’s possible that he goes to Ohio State or Georgetown the weekend of November 24,” says Hutchins.
The 6’8, 220 lbs power forward plays in Raleigh, North Carolina and he is likely to make an unofficial visit to the Tar Heels at the same time.
