Report: Cody Zeller Will Declare For NBA Draft

(CBS) Let the debate begin.

A day after teammate Victor Oladipo declared for the NBA Draft, Indiana center Cody Zeller is expected to do the same Wednesday afternoon, according to the Indy Star.

Zeller is still projected to be a first-round draft pick, but questions about his toughness emerged late in the season, especially in Indiana’s season-ending Sweet 16 loss to Syracuse. Many believe he could have used one more a seasoning at the collegiate level before making the jump the NBA.

Zeller was a second-team AP All-American and scored 1,157 points in his two-year IU career.
