Bloomington, Indiana — Indiana University men’s basketball coach Tom Crean has announced transfer Nick Zeisloft as the newest member of the team.

The 6-4 guard will enter IU as a graduate student after earning his degree in Finance from Illinois State. He will have two years of eligibility.

“The addition of Nick allows us to spread and space the floor even more and play with more pace,” said Crean. “More importantly, we are adding a young man that has been raised well and has been well coached throughout his career.  He brings a physical and mental toughness that has allowed him to play at a strong level and brings leadership and maturity to our program.”

Zeisloft played two seasons for the Redbirds, where he was a dominant force behind the arc. He was a career 37.3 shooter from three-point range, making 60 three-pointers last season. He excels from the foul line, nailing 90.0 of his free throws in the 2013-14 season. He also boasts 50 career assists. He was a team captain and was a First Team All-MVC Scholar-Athlete last season.

“I am very excited to have the opportunity to play for Coach Crean and the Indiana Hoosiers,” said Zeisloft..  “IU’s tradition is like no other and I am honored to have the opportunity to further my education in the Kelley School of Business.”

Zeisloft is from La Grange, Illinois and attended Lyons Township High School in 2011.
