New York Senior Prepares For D-1 Level

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at a senior prospect from New York State who is preparing himself to play division one college basketball next season ...

Brian Voelkel, a 6-foot-5 forward prospect from Iona Prep in New Rochelle, New York, is the type of player that helps a program win many basketball games.

Currently, Brian is preparing himself to play division one college basketball this upcoming Fall for Vermont, a very good program for him and a good level.

Voelkel, who competed in the New York regional All Star game, part of the Jordan Brand event being held at Madison Square Garden (St. John's, Knicks, Rangers, Liberty play there) on April 17th, plays hard on every possession. Willing to get on the floor for loose balls and always battling for rebounds, Brian should be a solid impact player for Vermont.

We also previously reported that Brian was one of 30 plus players nominated from the state of New York for the McDonald's All American game.

Scout.com previously reported that besides Vermont being interested in Voelkel seriously, Manhattan and Iona had expressed an interest in Vokel's skill level.

Brian played for one of the area's top AAU boy's basketball programs in the Westchester Hawks, a program that teaches team first, individuality second.

The Westchester Hawks have played in some of the more high profile AAU events, including the Rumble in the Bronx held at Fordham and many of the Disney World events in Florida.
