Vonleh a McDonald's All-American

6-foot-8 forward Noah Vonleh was named to the East squad today for the April 3rd McDonald's All-American game. He becomes the 27th Hoosier to receive the honor and it's the third year in a row an Indiana signee has been named to the 24-man game.

Current Hoosiers Cody Zeller and Kevin "Yogi" Ferrell were named the prior two games.

No other Indiana signees were named this year. Mishawaka Marian guard Demetrius Jackson, a Notre Dame signee, is the only high school player from the state of Indiana to be named. He will join Vonleh on the East squad.

A native of Haverhill, Massachusetts, Vonleh plays for New Hampton Prep in New Hampshire, one of the long, traditional prep school powers in the East coast. Capable of playing either forward position, Vonleh was the last member of November's six man Indiana class to decide to become a Hoosier. He committed on November 10th, a day after attending Indiana's season opening win over Bryant.

Vonleh is current ranked at the No. 7 overall player in the Class of 2013 by Rivals.com.

"You can't go into a recruiting time period and think you're going to get somebody like that---the stars were aligned for us," said Tom Crean after signing Vonleh. "As talented and as skilled as he is, the upside is hard to imagine. He's got incredible length. I think he's 6-foot-8 with a 7-foot-4 1/2 wingspan. He fits what we're trying to do with that length and versatility in our program right now."

This year's game will be played at the United Center in Chicago. For complete rosters: Rivals.com story
