According his AAU coach, Gavin Sullivan, Max Bielfeldt received a scholarship offer from the University of Illinois tonight. Bielfeldt was a candidate for Michigan’s final scholarship offer but it’s worth noting that the 6-foot-8 post player has strong connections to the University of Illinois. For example, the athletic administration building is named after his grandparents.
6-foot-7 combo forward Larry Nance Jr. appears to be the other primary target for Michigan’s final scholarship in the class of 2011. Our scouting report and video from Nance’s game last Friday can be found here and Joe also interviewed Nance last week.
