Highlight Moment:

Vonleh was voted Big Ten Freshman of the Year after finishing first in the league in rebounding and 23rd in the league in scoring. The Hoosier’s freshman recorded a career-high 19 points to go along with six boards and a block on the road against the Nittany Lions of Penn State on January 11. Vonleh did most of his damage early in the game as he scored 12 straight points in the opening minutes. His teammate Austin Etherington pushed Indiana out in front for good as he drained a three-pointer from the corner to seal a 79-76 victory.

Quotes:

“With his 7-4 wingspan and terrific 242 pound frame, Vonleh has the body, length and intensity-level needed to compete on the interior in the NBA. He shows some ability to score both inside and out, flashing hook shots over either shoulder and range out to the 3-point line, but does not have the skill-level or aggressiveness needed to be a consistent scorer at the college level yet." - Draft Express

“Vonleh has nearly all the skills to be a great long-term fit [with Sacramento] next to DeMarcus Cousins. In a season or two, he could provide the Kings with a lengthy, high-energy defensive presence. His 7'4 wingspan and blocking instincts would be a welcome addition, and his balanced offensive skills would allow the Kings to stretch the floor with an additional shooter while not sacrificing on the defensive end.” – SB Nation, Sactown Royalty

Kings Pre-Draft Workout Interview:

Where do you see yourself playing in the NBA?

“I see myself as a stretch-four and then hopefully one day work my way more out to the perimeter and be a three-man. I just have to keep working.”

What did the scouts at the combine say to you?

“People were surprised with my measurements at the combine. They were really impressed. We had our pro day the other day and I was just showing them how I can handle the ball and how well I can shoot it. Hopefully, it’s going to continue to get better.”
