After what was certainly a disappointing 2014-2015 season, the Michigan Wolverines have gotten even more bad news. On Saturday, senior forward Max Bielfeldt announced that he was down to his final three schools to transfer to for his final season, according to College Spun.
Brendan Quinn with MLive Media Group announced the three school via Twitter.
Max Bielfeldt tells me DePaul is no longer being considered as a landing spot. Grad transfer is now down to Iowa St, Indiana and Nebraska.

It would be a huge blow to the Wolverines if the 6’7″ forward was to transfer in-conference, especially to Indiana. The Hoosiers have had their troubles on the court as of late. They were bounced from the tournament in the Round of 64 last season and missed it the previous year. The four-time NCAA champions would certainly benefit from the forward’s play.
Iowa State would also like to have Bielfeldt in a red and gold uniform come November. The Cyclones fell to UAB in the Round of 64 last season and return leading scorer Georges Niang. The combination of Niang and Bielfeldt would certainly make the Cyclones a powerhouse in the Big 12 for the 2015-2016 season.
Wherever Bielfeldt ends up, he will certainly excel. One thing is for sure, the Wolverines are going to miss him on the court.
