WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill. - Last year Jon Ekey left Illinois State and landed in the Big Ten, this year's it's Nick Zeisloft's turn.
Zeisloft, who graduated from ISU in three years, will transfer to Indiana and play college basketball as a graduate student. He will have two years eligibility remaining.
“The addition of Nick allows us to spread and space the floor even more and play with more pace,” said IU head coach Tom 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 and was a career 37.3 shooter from three-point range. He made 60 three-pointers last season and shot 41.8 from long distance making 28 of 67 from three-point range.
He also is an outstanding free throw shooter making 90.0 from the line last season and takes care of the basketball with a career assist/turnover ledger of 50 assists to 28 turnovers. He was a team captain and was a First Team All-MVC Scholar-Athlete last season.
