CBSSports.com released it’s preseason All-American and All-Freshman teams on Monday and named Cody Zeller Preseason National Player of the Year.
And Jeff Goodman’s explanation of why that was is pretty simple.
“He’ll be the preseason pick for this award by just about everyone because he’s the best player, potentially the top overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and plays for arguably the top team. Zeller does everything for the Hoosiers — he scores, rebounds, defends, runs the court and leads by example. If there’s a weakness, it’s that Zeller isn’t selfish enough. He needs to take more shots — and if he does, he should be a 20 and 10 guy almost every single night.”
You should probably just go ahead and presume that Zeller will be a Preseason All-American on every list you see this year.
Of note, Michigan point guard Trey Burke is listed as a second-team All-American. Ohio State’s DeShaun Thomas and Aaron Craft were named to the third team along with Minnesota’s Trevor Mbakwe. Indiana point guard Yogi Ferrell was named second team All-Freshman.
UPDATE: Also, CBS released it’s top 100 list. Zeller is No. 1, Christian Watford No. 35 and Victor Oladipo No. 84.
