Eyeing IU


Q&A: IU center Cody Zeller

Read what IU center Cody Zeller had to say about his preparation for the NBA, finishing out classes in Bloomington and what he expects from the Hoosiers next season.

JG: What's this final week been like as your college career comes to a close?

Zeller: I've just been conducting business as usual, with the workouts and going to classes. Not a whole lot has changed.

JG: So it doesn't seem different at all? No teary moments yet?

Zeller: It doesn't feel a whole lot different. Once school gets over and things start picking up, it'll hit me, but I'm just trying to enjoy the moment.

JG: What's the process of getting ready for the NBA Draft and going through things with your agent like?

Zeller: There's a lot of things – a lot of paperwork, a lot of things you have to get done. I'm excited for the opportunity and just enjoying the experience.

JG: How have you and the rest of the guys been preparing for the next level?

Zeller: We're back at it now with strength, conditioning and off-the-court stuff. Still continuing to work.... It's great to spend some more time with these guys. It's a neat experience.

JG: You'll be in a much different spot next season when the first game tips in Assembly Hall. What do you think that will feel like?

Zeller: It'll feel a lot different, but I'll keep in touch with all these guys. I'll be watching closely.
