Tyler ZellerTyler Zeller, the top senior-to-be in the state of Indiana from Washington High School in North Daviess, has a list of his top four schools, announced today on the Indiana Elite website.

As I told you a month ago, the momentum for the Hoosiers in Zeller’s recruitment seemed to be gaining steam and the news today only reinforces that sentiment.

The four schools still in the running: IU, Purdue, North Carolina and Notre Dame.

Notably absent are Kentucky and Kansas who were initially thought to be serious contenders in the race for the big man.

There is no timetable for a decision as Zeller plans to take official visits to each school before making his choice later in the fall.

  • Let’s hope he chooses the Hoosiers. We could use a big man like him after D.J. leaves (hope he doesn’t though.)

    I have heard he is MUCH better…but I also have heard (several different times) that Purdue is the leader.

    I think if IU is able to get a visit on Midnight Madness or the last official he takes, they’ll be in good shape.

    Tyler is faster, more athletic, and a better overall player. They don’t use Luke properly at Notre Dame and I would hate to see the same thing happen to Tyler. Luke does have a better shot, but as a slower big man, he needs to be inside more and use his shot on a more close to mid-range level when necessary. Both great players and athletic for their size, but Tyler’s athletic ability is better and his phsyical play is much more apt for the college game and maybe after if he works on it.
