Noah Vonleh will forego his final three years of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft, according to a report from Gary Parrish of

Vonleh was a top ten recruit entering the season and performed like it for much of the year. He finished the season averaging 11.3 points and 9.0 boards while shooting 45.5% from three, but Indiana’s season ended with a first round exit in the Big Ten tournament.

Vonleh is a 6-foot-10, 240 pound post player with three-point range. He’s a terrific rebounder and fairly athletic for a kid with his kind of size and strength. He’s projected as a consensus top ten pick at this point, and much of that has to do with the fact that he won’t turn 19 until late-August.

    IU fan here… I wish you the best… really think you could have used another yr of seasoning… but if one is a first round pick, the money is guaranteed…

    If Noah is the 10th pick in the draft, he’ll earn over $4 million combined in his first two seasons…

    I know there are taxes and his agents cut…

    But, very few college grads make $100 K in their first yr out of college. While many in life make more than $100 K in a yr, the overwhelming majority of folks NEVER make $100 K in a yr.

    One would need to make $100 K a yr for 40 consecutive yrs to earn $4 million dollars.

    The problem is that many of these kids live high off the hog, expect money like this or more to be coming in the seasons to come etc…

    It WOULD be hard to say no to that kind of money at 19 or 20 yrs old, especially if it was guaranteed…
