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.

Bielfeldt visited each of the four schools he’s considering.

“As far as a timetable (for making a decision), I’m going to go home and figure things out in these next few days,” Bielfeldt said.

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