2014's Noah Vonleh keeps growing -- literally

By Jeff Borzello

Right now, Noah Vonleh is one of the top-10 prospects in the class of 2014. At 6-foot-7, he is a matchup nightmare due to his versatility and wide-ranging talents.

The scary part? Vonleh isn’t done growing.

“My doctor said I could grow to be 6’10”,” he said.

If the New Hampton (N.H.) product gets taller and keeps his current skill set, his potential is through the roof. Vonleh is very long and rangy, and has the ability to handle, pass and finish at the rim.

“I want to prove that I’m one of the best in my class,” he said. “One of the top five in my class.”

Despite his rapid improvement over the last year, Vonleh is still working on certain things in his game.

“I want to attack the basket better, and not get in too deep. I have to work on my pull up,” he said. “I’m in the gym everyday.”

It’s very early in his recruitment, but Vonleh already has offers from Boston College, Pittsburgh, Providence, Syracuse and Georgia Tech, with interest also from Tennessee, North Carolina, Duke, Connecticut and West Virginia.

At his current size, Vonleh is a five-star prospect. If he gets to 6-foot-10? The sky is the limit.

Emmanuel Mudiay making early impression

By Jeff Borzello

AKRON, OHIO – Emmanuel Mudiay is one of the top players in the class of 2014 – and in a refreshing twist, he’s the proper age for his grade.

“I’m probably the youngest player here,” Mudiay said at the LeBron James Skills Academy last week. “I just turned 15.”

More on Recruiting

The 6-foot-4 Grace Prep (Tex.) product is a tremendously gifted player for his age. He handles the point guard position well, and is very difficult to keep out of the lane due to his athleticism, length and size.

While he is certainly ranked near the top of his own class, Mudiay is aiming for something higher.

“I’m just trying to play my game, I want to send a message,” he said. “I want to show I can play with the best of the best.”

Although it’s early in his recruitment, Mudiay is already hearing from plenty of schools. Most of the Big 12 is on him, including Texas, Baylor and Kansas, while Arizona has also made an impression.

One school is standing out, but it’s too early to tell if they will be the favorite until the end.

“Texas is my dream school,” Mudiay said. “But I’m not going to think about it right now.”
