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.
