Fred VanVleet Bio
A native of Rockford, Illinois, Fred Vanvleet quickly became one of the biggest names to come out of the area, becoming the top ranked high school player in the state of Illinois. This was followed by an equally as impressive college career at Wichita State where he led the program to 4 straight NCAA tournaments, a Final Four appearance, and an undefeated regular season.
Despite unbelievable success on the high school and collegiate levels, Fred went undrafted in the NBA draft. He used that as fuel to set the G-league on fire, win a league championship, and earn his spot on the Toronto Raptor’s roster. He made “Bet on yourself” his mantra and has continued to show that he can’t be counted out. Fred has made it his calling card to be a spark off the bench with his scoring, quickly becoming a fan favorite with his game and work ethic. It has become clear to everyone who has watched him that the future is extremely bright for this rising star.
