Noah Vonleh has reclassified to 2013 from 2014 and several top schools are in hot pursuit.
The news was first reported by ESPN.com.
“He’s a good student,” New Hampton coach Pete Hutchinstold InsidetheHall.com. “There were minimal changes that needed to be made to his course load. We just kind of made an easy decision in that he’s certainly talented enough. I think academically, it just made it that much easier to make that decision.”
CBSSports.com reported that Boston College, Indiana, North Carolina and Ohio State were pursuing the 6-foot-7 power forward the hardest. Jeff Goodman of CBS also Tweeted that Louisville coach Rick Pitino was due in to see Vonleh today (Monday).
Hutchins said Vonleh has yet to narrow his list.
“It’s not really fair to list,” he told Inside the Hall. “There’s a long list of schools interested in Noah and he has yet to narrow that list down in part because he just reclassified and I don’t think he has a firm grasp of which schools are going to pursue him and what those rosters look like.”
