Former Michigan big man Max Bielfeldt will finish his college career at Indiana. The graduate transfer announced his destination on Twitter this evening.
Excited to announce I'll be spending my fifth year of eligibility at Indiana University! #B1G

Bielfeldt averaged 5.1 points and 3.6 rebounds per game last season and started three games for the Wolverines. He picked Indiana over Iowa State, Nebraska and DePaul.
The 6-foot-7 senior will have immediate eligibility for the Hoosiers next season after his graduate transfer within the Big Ten conference was approved. Despite Michigan appearing to have a scholarship spot open next season, Bielfeldt will be playing his final year of college elsewhere.
“I did tell the coaches that I did want to come back to Michigan,” Bielfeldt told MLive in early May. “But at the end of the day things didn’t work out and we both decided to move on.”
Bielfeldt was a member of Michigan’s 2011 recruiting class that also included Trey Burke and Carlton Brundidge. He’ll have the opportunity to play at the Crisler Center one more time as the Hoosiers are scheduled to play at Michigan in 2015-16.
