Vonleh lands second high-major offer
ESPN's Adam Finkelstein is reporting today on his recruiting blog that Haverhill High sophomore forward Noah Vonleh has picked up another scholarship offer today, this one from the University of Pittsburgh.
Vonleh, a 6-foot-7 point forward who is the No. 26 overall player nationally in ESPN's Class of 2013 rankings, got a visit this week from Pitt assistant Pat Skerry, who first made a name for himself on the recruiting trail as an assistant at Providence before moving on to Jamie Dixon's staff in Pittsburgh this season and landing a commitment from Khem Birch two months ago.
Boston College was the first to offer Vonleh this summer, and the offers should only pick up as schools like North Carolina, Syracuse and Kentucky have shown interest.
The No. 12 Hillies open the 2010-11 season tonight at No. 8 Andover, which lost last Saturday to unranked Lowell. Be sure to check out Finkelstein's blog for updates on all of New England's top basketball recruits.
