WHAT THEY'RE SAYING AROUND THE WEB

ESPN
Apr 10 Update: Zeller began the season projected as a top-three pick. He is one of the two or three most skilled big men in the country, is exceptional leaking out on the fast break, has great hands and is difficult to contain when he catches the ball in the high post. However, Zeller's lack of length and strength have posed problems for him when paired up against long, physical, athletic big men. His lack of a great perimeter game also hinders his abilities somewhat. Scouts are a bit torn about what position he guards at the next level. He's likely a mid- to late-lottery pick.

DRAFT EXPRESS
Beyond the numbers, Zeller draws significant intrigue with the outstanding combination of mobility, scoring instincts and aggressiveness he displays, all of which hint at a terrific future which could be in store for him as he continues to develop.

Zeller possesses short arms and a very skinny frame at the moment, which could be the main thing holding him back long term, but he's an incredibly agile and fluid big man who runs the floor well and has the explosiveness to play above the rim on a regular basis.

Most of his touches come inside the paint at the moment, where he looks incredibly comfortable operating with his back to the basket thanks to his nimble footwork and smooth post moves. He uses head-fakes, shot-fakes and spin moves well, showing a more advanced arsenal of counters than you'd expect considering his age.

Smart, skilled post player with a nice overall physical profile to play down low at the next level ... Good height, standing 6'11" ... Very mobile for a center ... Like his brother (Tyler Zeller), Cody runs the floor extremely hard and often catches the defense off-guard to score a few easy points ... Developing strength with the kind of frame that can support more muscle ... Very efficient scorer, (showing more creativity and skill than brother Tyler) in the post ... Excellent footwork and agility around the rim ... Shows the ability to finish well with either hand ... Very active without the ball ... Doesn't just wait in the post for the ball, will fight for better position or set screens to get teammates open ... Is a big threat on the offensive glass ... High basketball IQ, and doesn't make a lot of mistakes for a freshman ... Has a nice touch on his jump-shot, and is a quality free-throw shooter ... A good defender and comes up with a lot of steals ...
