It is the 23rd hour for five-star center Tyler Zeller. The 6-foot-11 big man from Washington (Ind.) trimmed his list to four recently and now he's set to make four official visits before making a decision.
Zeller's first trip takes him to North Carolina on Sept. 15. The following weekend, he's off to Indiana. On Oct. 12, the five-star center will visit Notre Dame. His final visit comes on Oct. 19, when he'll visit Purdue.
With the schools all on an equal playing field going into the visits, Zeller says he is hoping to get that "this is the place" feeling during the trips.
"I'm hoping I can just go with whatever feels right," Zeller said. "I'm hoping I can see which of these four feel right and which school I should go to. Other than that, I'll probably have to start looking at the small little details."
Zeller has already been to all four campuses before and he said the official visits are important but won't be the ultimate deciding factor.
"The visits play a pretty big role but not too big of a role. I basically know what it's all about. I think these trips will let me get to know the players a little bit better and see the coaches some more," he said.
Zeller said he plans on waiting a week after his final visit before
"I don't want to go off that last visit and make an emotional decision. I want to make sure I find the place that's the right fit," he said.
