High school basketball

Vonleh preps for move to big-time basketball

Google Noah Vonleh, the 6-foot-9-inch, 220-pound, five-star college basketball recruit from New Hampton School, and you will be inundated with stories summarizing his commitment to Indiana University, dissecting his on-court abilities, and analyzing his upside as a future NBA player.

What you will not find are narratives about Vonleh’s upbringing or who he is as a person. Unlike most of the seven players ranked before him in the high school class of 2013, Vonleh does not have a Wikipedia page or a Twitter account — though there are a few fake ones out there.
