If only he got the rock a little bit more.
Noah Vonleh, at just 18 years old, hasn't been the focal point of his offense the way many of the other top prospects have been. He was used in just 21.5 percent of Indiana's plays.
But Vonleh capitalized on the majority of the ones run his way. He finished the regular season averaging 11.4 points on 53.1 percent.
When evaluating Vonleh, scouts will be valuing quality over quantity—how he got his buckets as opposed to how many he got. At 6'10", 240 pounds with a 7'4" wingspan, Vonleh is a handful in the post, where he's got the touch, foot speed and length to finish around or over defenders.
And unlike most young big men, Vonleh has a rare comfort level on the perimeter, where he's made 16 of 31 three-point attempts.
"Vonleh is one of the few big kids in this league who can go out on the perimeter and hold his own," Michigan coach John Beilein told Brendan Quinn of Mlive.com. "He’s an anomaly that way."
Not only does he have tremendous offensive upside, but he's also the Big Ten's leading rebounder despite playing just 26.3 minutes per game.
There really isn't much not to like here. Given his age, the promise he's already flashed and his limited role in Indiana's offense, he'll be (and he has been) playing with house money from here on out.
