Vonleh Awaiting Offer

The North Carolina staff made it a priority to evaluate and be seen watching its top targets during the first evaluation weekend. Included in that group of top targets is New Hampton (N.H.) Prep sophomore standout Noah Vonleh.

Roy Williams and his staff were spotted evaluating the 6-foot-8 combo forward from the class of 2014 at the adidas VIP Exclusive Run.

The Tar Heels were also in to see Vonleh at his school last week.

"It's going pretty good," Vonleh said of his recruitment.. "UNC came up to watch me in pick-up at school the other day. Ohio State offered recently."

Vonleh said he's been in regular contact with North Carolina's coaches and they foreshadowed that a scholarship offer could be in the works.

"Last time they told me they were going to offer pretty soon, but I'm still waiting on it," Vonleh said from the adidas event.

"They said they are going to try and get me for one of their 2014 guys," he added. "They said I should be having an offer from them pretty soon."

A five-star prospect, Vonleh said UNC has compared him two a pair of former Tar Heel players.

"I like their whole team," he said. "They compare me to a Marvin Williams or a Harrison Barnes. They really get up and down the court and play fast paced. I would fit in perfect."

Despite having scholarship offers from a host of schools including Ohio State, Kansas, Boston College, UCLA, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Florida, Auburn and Georgia Tech, Vonleh said his recruitment is the last thing on his mind.

"I'm not paying attention to it," Vonleh said. "I'm just trying to come out here and win. I'm not really thinking about it too much right now. I'm just going with the flow."

Vonleh helped Mass Rivals go undefeated in pool play at the adidas VIP Exclusive Run. Using his tremendous athleticism and versatility, Vonleh drew rave reviews from coaches and evaluators that saw him on Saturday.

"I've been playing pretty good," he said. "I'm trying to go inside and out. I want to get my team going starting in the post and as we go get it on the wing and start making shots."

"[I'm a] combo forward," Vonleh said. "I can go inside and outside. Hopefully I can translate it to being a small forward."
