The Indiana Hoosier men's basketball program is losing another star. A day after Victor Oladipo announced he's entering the NBA Draft, Sophomore Cody Zeller announced he is as well.


The Washington, Indiana native says his family members helped with the decision. He says a big advantage was having his brother Tyler go through the draft process a year ahead of him, and having his oldest brother Luke playing for the Phoenix Suns.

Coach Tom Crean says Zeller helped raise the level of everyone associated with the program in his two years in Bloomington. Crean says Zeller is already thought very highly of in NBA circles, but he says once they see him workout they will be "even more amazed".

As for finishing school, Zeller says he's 35 credits away and will be able to take summer and online classes to get his degree.
