Zeller will announce Wednesday that he is headed to the NBA, the Indianapolis Star reports. Zeller averaged 16.5 points and 8.1 rebounds as a sophomore.

Zeller joined Victor Odalipo as Hoosier underclassmen who will forgo years of eligibility. The seven-footer should be a late lottery pick. He is a decent rebounder and can hit a mid-range jumper, but he may follow a similar trajectory as his brother Tyler who started for the Cavaliers this season but produced mediocre numbers. Hanner Mosquera-Perea may move into the starting lineup for Indiana.
