Bielfeldt eliminates DePaul, will use weekend to make decision

052215biel

Michigan graduate transfer Max Bielfeldt has eliminated one school from his list and will take the weekend to make his decision, according to multiple reports.

Bielfeldt told Brendan F. Quinn of MLive.com that he’s no longer considering DePaul, which means he’ll choose from a final three of Indiana, Iowa State and Nebraska. He visited each of those schools.

His decision, which he originally planned to have in the days following his visit to Bloomington, is likely to come after this weekend.

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

Max Bielfeldt on IU visit: “It was great”

Michigan graduate transfer Max Bielfeldt finished his visit to Indiana and hopes to have a decision later this week, he told Inside the Hall on Monday evening.

Bielfeldt, listed at 6-foot-8 and 245-pounds on Michigan’s 2014-2015 roster, is considering four schools: DePaul, Indiana, Iowa State and Nebraska.

He won an appeal earlier this month that would allow him to transfer to another Big Ten school.

“It was great,” Bielfeldt said of his visit to Bloomington. “Got to see the campus, meet the coaches and a couple guys. And got to see how I would fit in to the program with the development in my game.”

Although many IU players are away for break, Bielfeldt said he met Collin Hartman, Nick Zeisloft and Yogi Ferrell during his visit.

A native of Peoria, Illinois, Bielfeldt 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.

Following last week’s news that Devin Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea have been dismissed from the program, Indiana now has two available scholarships to give in the class of 2015.

As a result, we’ve reinstated our 2015 recruiting board and will keep it updated in the coming weeks and months as the Hoosier staff looks to fill the two open scholarships for the 2015-2016 campaign.
