Indiana center Cody Zeller will leave school after his sophomore season and enter the NBA Draft, reports the Indianapolis Star's Bob Kravitz on Twitter.

Zeller helped the Hoosiers to a Big Ten title and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. His announcement comes one day after teammate Victor Oladipo declared for the draft.

Zeller ranked 10th on the latest NBA Draft Big Board from's Chris Mannix. Zeller has a short wingspan (reportedly 6-8), and there are questions about whether he will be able to score consistently against NBA defenders. But he is still expected to be taken in the top half of the first round.
