Report: Cody Zeller to announce mid-week

  • 11/06/2010 9:44 pm in

Citing a source, Herald-Times IU beat reporter (and our friend) Dustin Dopirak is reporting that a decision from five-star Washington forward Cody Zeller will likely come in the middle of next week:

A source indicated tonight that Washington forward Cody Zeller is likely to announce his decision mid-week, but there is no clear indication of what school he will decide to go to and that Zeller himself may still be deciding. There was talk that he would announce his decision on ESPNU, but that now appears unlikely to happen.

Mid-week, presumably, could mean Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

Interesting in Dustin’s report is that Zeller could still be in the process of reaching his decision.¬†This¬†corroborates¬†information Inside the Hall received from a source earlier this evening that another school involved in the recruitment had not yet been notified of a decision as of tonight.

The good news is that the absence of ESPNU should mean that media, including us, will be able to cover the announcement whenever it’s made. Looks like this one could be going down to the wire, folks.

    I am from Washington and graduated a few years ago. All the talk from the basketball team is that they think he will be going to IU…I was in church Sunday and all the talk was IU…hmmm must be different denominations of church

    Here you go look for yourself Bloomberg/Business Week rankings for Undergrad Business.
    http://www.businessweek.com/interactive_reports/bschools_undergraduate_10rankings.html

    UNC 14
    IU 19
    Case Western Reserve in Cleveland 38
    Purdue 58
    Butler 63

    I have seen IU ranked a little higher in other rankings and I have also seen UNC a little higher as well. UNC and IU are both great programs and Butler is also a good program but as far as rankings go IU and UNC are Tier 1 and Butler would be a Tier 3 school.

    Butler isn’t exactly a remedial Business Program but it also isn’t in the same class with the other two programs.

  • crean bringing the hype

    oh my god, we found the one person outside of the zeller family who knows where cody is going!!! oh wait butler probably has the worst chance of getting him….

  • If you are commenting about the “RacistAndre” character I agree he writes terrible things. However, I looked into it a bit and I think this is a joke twitter run by a comedian. Not exactly what I call humor, but hey I’m a Steve Martin kind of guy anyway.

  • Throughout this whole ordeal, I really think that Etherington has been great. He has been overshadowed by Cody this entire time, yet he still helps out the program. I would love if Zeller came here, but I think we have someone special in Etherington. The kid is excited to be a Hoosier and I am excited for him to be at Assembly next year.

  • Not funny, someone should tell G.H. people judge off these sort of things.
    That being said, WOW. I think he is hillarious but you better be carefull what you show people when you are working on a future like his

    2009 – Hansborough is a PF
    2008- Aldrich was a true C
    2006-07 – Noah, a PF all the way
    2005 – May was a PF
    2004- Did Thabeet see the floor?
    2002 – Wilcox, another PF
    2001 – Boozer PF

    These guys might be big men but they are not C’s. Everyone of these teams had a good guard combo or either a 3 guard or good sf.

    Whether they played PF or C the fact remains that most of those guys were 6’9″ middle of the paint guys and their teams would not have won without them (most of them). In fact, the argument that Cody will play the 5 is iffy. He’ll probably play the 4 but still be the “guy in the middle” so the lineup would be a heck of a lot more traditional than non-traditional.

    Also, just look at the NBA (which I think sucks) but the fact still remains that there’s usually a strong C on each championship team. The college game still favors the more traditional lineups. The last lineup I can remember that won a NCAA championship without a player over 6’7″ was UCLA way back when they had like 5 guys all around 6’6″ or so and size wasn’t as prevalent back then anyway.

    OK, you can start writing Thursday.

    That’s what I was saying–Hanner would be the 3 on defense. Cody can drift a bit on offense and has a better shot. Will he take anyone off the dribble? I doubt it, but he’s a match-up problem in much the same way Watford is in that he’s tall enough to shoot/pass over his defender if it’s a 3 on him.

  • marcusgresham

    I believe Florida started Al Horford and Joakim Noah. Corey Brewer was the small forward at 6’8″ or so.

  • marcusgresham

    You’re correct Noah didn’t play center—-Al Horford (a guy still in the NBA,) did.
