Zeller is a 7-foot, 240-pound center/power forward who is a consensus lottery pick. Thompson, who transferred to Utah Valley from Oklahoma for his senior season, is a 6-foot-9, 212-pound forward.

Zeller doesn’t turn 21 until Oct. 5. He averaged 16.1 points and 7.4 rebounds in 29.5 minutes last season for the Hoosiers. He was a first-team All-Big Ten selection by the league’s coaches and media.

Thompson, who attended Clearfield High and the College of Eastern Utah before ending up at Utah Valley, averaged 9.9 points and 7.9 rebounds last season for Wolverine coach Dick Hunsaker.

In what turned out to be his last game at UVU, Thompson finished with 22 points and 13 rebounds in a 76-74 double overtime loss to Houston Baptist in the first round of the Great West Conference tournament in March.
