Michigan grad transfer Max Bielfeldt visited Indiana on Sunday and Monday. How did it go? Find out here.

Max Bielfeldt walked away from his Indiana visit on Monday afternoon with a much better understanding how he'd fit in with the Hoosiers and how the coaching staff would use him if he chooses to play in Bloomington.

The 6-foot-8 Michigan grad transfer spent two full days on campus, arriving early Sunday and leaving just after 5 p.m. on Monday. During the trip, Bielfeldt saw the entire campus, met a few of the players and all the coaches, and completed a 70-minute workout with all the coaches looking on. Afterward, he sat with Tom Crean and his staff and broke down film on himself.

"It was great," Bielfeldt told AllHoosiers.com. "They saw that by me being an inside-outside scorer I could be a threat with some more work on my game. I really got to see how I would fit in to the program with more development in my game."

Bielfeldt was granted his release from Michigan in April, and won an appeal that allows him to transfer within the Big Ten. He averaged 5.1 points and 3.6 rebounds per game for the Wolverines last season, and won the team's Sixth Man award.

Bielfeldt said he is done with visits now and plans to make a decision by the end of the week. He also visited Nebraska recently and has been pursued by Iowa State and DePaul, among others.

"I have to go home and think some things over these next few days," he said.

Indiana has two scholarships available because of the dismissals of Hanner Mosquera-Perea and Devin Davis last week. Bielfeldt would be eligible to play immediately.
