Max Bielfeldt to visit Indiana on Sunday

  • 05/15/2015 10:50 pm in

Michigan graduate transfer Max Bielfeldt, who won an appeal that will allow him to transfer within the Big Ten, will visit Indiana on Sunday according to a report from Jon Rothstein.

Bielfeldt confirmed his plans to visit in a text message to Inside the Hall on Saturday afternoon.

The 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward averaged 5.1 points and 3.6 rebounds in 14.5 minutes per game last season for the Wolverines and will be eligible immediately. He was granted his release from Michigan in late April after it was announced that Caris LeVert would return for his senior season.

Indiana has two scholarships open for next season following the dismissals of Devin Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea.

Bielfeldt, a native of Peoria, Illinois, visited Nebraska earlier this week and is also considering DePaul and Iowa State, among others.

    I’m not convinced he’s going to play the 5 regardless of where he lands. Maybe in college, but even then he’s going to drift to the perimeter to use his agility to his advantage. I see your points but I think he’s good enough to take the risk. I won’t be heartbroken if he goes elsewhere (well, at least to Arizona St.,) but I’d love to have the kid.

    I expect good things from him too—kind of a more athletic Darryl Thomas–but it’s slightly incorrect to say he was still supposed to be in high school. He was headed to a prep school, which is essentially a fifth year of high school.

    No way ole man,hammer is an athlete not a basketball player,no court awareness,plays d with his hands down,can’t catch a pass to save his life. I’d take max any day. I’m glad both of them are gone

    True I guess I kind of missed that early on

  • First, let me say: I said this same thing before the incident. I’ve been very impressed with EH, and fully expected him to move in front of HMP in the lineup next season. I think he’s a much better _basketball player_, with better instincts and more court awareness. As you say, if he puts on some weight and strength, I think he’ll be a very effective 4 and occasional 5 in spelling TB. I’m not glad to see HMP gone, and think he would have contributed some nice minutes, but I’ve thought since about midway through last season that EH was poised to take his minutes at some point.

  • Michigan’s 6th Man of the Year, eh? Kind of like a CH counterpoint. Nice.

  • HannerTime Hoosier

    What was the name of that player from Wisconsin who became National Player of the Year? Oh yeah, begins with a K. Hanner would never have been elite, but I thought you all said CTC develops big men?! No, CTC nurtures 4’s, plays them as a 5 and their natural talent/self-developed skill gets them drafted high. Oh, but some on here will argue the truth.

    Just found – sorry

    He was Bee-lined.

  • Michael Crawley

    Not to mention he could have folded when he got in trouble but he didn’t. The kid has a good head on his shoulders despite the issue he was involved in. That will all be behind him this year he is going to push a lot of teammates that is for sure.

    Did Max grow 2 inches?

  • CreanFaithful

    All I meant is I don’t see any available talent that would crack the starting lineup outside of Thon. Swanigan, while capable, is not a real option from my understanding. However, I’d welcome any talented player we can still add…
