BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Indiana’s Cody Zeller is expected to announce his future plans this afternoon.
The university has called a 4 p.m. news conference and the 7-foot sophomore center may be leaning toward turning pro this year after skipping last year’s draft to return to school and chase a national championship. Teammate Victor Oladipo, a 6-foot-5 junior, announced he was leaving for the NBA on Tuesday.
Zeller opened this season as a preseason favorite for national player of the year. He wound up leading the Hoosiers in scoring (16.5 points) and rebounding (8.1), was a second-team All-American and is projected to be a top 10 pick in June’s draft.
Zeller’s older two brothers, Luke and Tyler, also have played in the NBA this season.
