Less than a week after visiting Nebraska, former Michigan forward Max Bielfeldt will visit Indiana. According to Jeff Rabjohns of Rivals.com, Bielfeldt’s visit is scheduled to begin Sunday, and it comes at a good time for Indiana given roster changes earlier this week.
Forwards Devin Davis and Hanner Mosquera-Perea were both dismissed from the program by head coach Tom Crean, with the move coming after Davis was cited for misdemeanor marijuana possession in a campus dorm room with Mosquera-Perea in the room (he was not cited). That incident marked the end of their time as Hoosiers for both players, who ran into off-court issues earlier in their respective careers.
With those dismissals there’s room for another front court addition, even with the addition of three freshmen led by McDonald’s All-American Thomas Bryant. The Hoosiers, whose most experienced front court players are juniors Troy Williams and Collin Hartman, have two available scholarships in the aftermath of the aforementioned dismissals.
Bielfeldt, who averaged 5.1 points and 3.5 rebounds in 14.5 minutes of action per game at Michigan last season, obviously has experience playing in the Big Ten. He recently received a waiver from the conference that would allow him to join another league program, something that normally would not occur.
Prior to the ruling that opened the door for a visit to Nebraska and the scheduling of a trip to Indiana, Bielfeldt had trimmed his list down to DePaul and Iowa State.
