Although they are currently the No. 1 ranked team in college basketball, the Indiana Hoosiers made a huge recruiting splash Saturday night, securing a verbal commitment from 2013 top-10 recruit Noah Vonleh. A 6-8 power forward from New Hampton School (MA), Vonleh is an elite talent who should make an immediate impact when he steps on campus. He joins another loaded Indiana class, which includes top-50 forward Troy Williams. Via ESPN.com: “‘From Day One, Indiana has been recruiting me the hardest,’ Vonleh told ESPN.com. ‘They were just letting me know how they could develop me into the player I want to be at the next level. Their academics are good, they’re the No. 1 team in the country and they’ve got another great class coming in next year.’ Vonleh was the fifth-highest rated prospect still available in the 2013 class. He brings Indiana the crown jewel to an already strong recruiting class — as well as a frontcourt talent that is capable of stepping in to replace Cody Zeller should Zeller make a jump to the NBA after his sophomore season. ‘They said next year I could come in and be one of the main guys,’ Vonleh said. ‘They’re going to lose Christian Watford, and probably Zeller, so they want me to come in a be a big piece right away.'”
