Cody Zeller commits to Indiana!

Mike Pegram of Rivals confirmed it first via liveblog, followed by Jeff Rabjohns of the Indianapolis Star and many others: when the announcement begins in a few minutes, Washington, Indiana's Cody Zeller, a top 25 prospect from the class of 2011, will announce that he will attend Indiana University and play for the Hoosiers.  Zeller won't be Tom Crean's top-ranked commitment to date (2012 commit Hanner Perea is ranked higher), but this is viewed as a watershed moment for Crean's efforts.  He was able to convince Zeller, who is an excellent player, a top-notch student, and comes from a basketball-savvy family, to put his faith in Crean's ability to right the ship, and he said, "yes."  Zeller chose IU over two excellent competitors: Roy Williams and North Carolina, the two-time NCAA champion coach who coaches Cody's brother Tyler; and Brad Stevens and Butler, who came within an eyelash of winning the title last fall and has defeated IU for a top recruit before (Matt Howard).

Zeller's not Crean's first Indiana recruit.  Before today, Crean had landed Derek Elston, Jordan Hulls, Austin Etherington, James Blackmon, Jr., and Trey Lyles.  Crean's critics could dismiss those guys because they were too young, supposedly not good enough, or whatever.  Well, Cody Zeller can't be ignored.  Congrats, Coach, and welcome aboard, Cody.  Time to get this thing turned around.
