Michigan Basketball Adds Max Bielfeldt To 2011 Recruiting Class

Max Bielfeldt, a power forward from Peoria, Illinois, announced his college decision Friday afternoon. Bielfeldt narrowed his list of schools down to Illinois and Michigan, and he put on a Michigan hat during his press conference. Although Bielfeldt is from Illinois and his family has ties to the Fighting Illini, he opted to go out of state and play for the Wolverines.

Bielfeldt is a 6-foot-8 power forward that will add more height to Michigan. He will also add depth in the post, which Michigan definitely needed. Since he is a 2011 recruit, he will join the Wolverines next season along with Trey Burke and Carlton Brundidge, who have already signed their letters of intent.

As far as what the recruiting sites have to say about Bielfeldt, he is unrated on both Rivals and Scout. ESPN grades him as an 87 and says in his evaluation that Bielfeldt is not very athletic but produces. He has been compared to the likes of Graham Brown with a better shot, as well as Luke Harangody and Brian Cardinal.
