"For the most part, I've looked at schools for the past two or three years. It all started in eighth grade, so I feel like a veteran of the whole recruiting process," he said. "The thing that stuck out about these five schools is I can really see myself there. Whether it's watching them on TV or going on campus with them or talking with the coaches, I can really see myself fitting there. Others fit, but these five just fit the best. "I want to sign before the fall. This summer, I'm going to really look into these five schools instead of looking into 20 schools or whatever I was at," added Zeller, who also noted that the opportunity to play right away was a factor in choosing the five schools on his list. "I really want to look into these five schools and find out as much as I can about them."
