Indiana forward Cody Zeller is declaring for the NBA Draft according to a report out of the Indianapolis Star, a move that isn't too surprising – yet one that's debatable. The move is expected to be made official at a press conference set for 4:10pm Eastern.
Zeller joins teammate Victor Oladipo, who made his announcement less than 24 hours ago, in declaring for the draft before their eligibility is up. However Oladipo will graduate in May from Indiana, while Zeller leaves after just his sophomore season in Bloomington.
In his two seasons in Bloomington the Hoosiers revived themselves back into the blue-blood they once were, going 56-16 as a team and making back-to-back Sweet 16 apperances in the NCAA Tournament.
He was named a second team All-American this season and averaged 16.1 points per game for his career – scoring 1,157 points in total – puting him just 35th on the all-time Hoosiers scoring list. Zeller also leaves averaging 7.3 rebounds per game over his career.
