Max Hoetzel transferring to San Diego State

  • 05/12/2015 2:54 pm in

Former Indiana forward Max Hoetzel will continue his college career at San Diego State, he announced today on his Instagram account.

Hoetzel averaged 2.4 points and 1.3 rebounds for the Hoosiers last season and chose the Aztecs over Rice and UNLV.

The Calabasas (Calif.) native was a member of IU’s 2014 recruiting class that also included Emmitt Holt, James Blackmon Jr., Jeremiah April, Robert Johnson and Tim Priller.

He appeared in 31 games at Indiana and shot 34.5 percent on 3-point field goals in 7.7 minutes per game.

The 6-foot-7 forward will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules but will have three seasons of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2016-2017 season.

Excited to announce that I'll be heading to San Diego State! #Aztec

    Good program and coach. Wonder how much longer the old fella will coach. Take the year and get stronger Max..gonna have to defend and be able to mix it up inside.

    San Diego St. is usually a top defensive team. Max wasn’t exactly great on D. Guess we will see how well they teach defense there.

    Not in that league. He should prosper, somewhat, in that program. Competition will not be as strong, as athletic, and as frequent (meaning fewer good players throughout the league).

    Congrats Max. Best of Luck.
