DeForest's Max Weisbrod makes college commitment for men's basketball

  • 0

Max Weisbrod, a senior-to-be at DeForest, announced Saturday on Twitter that he has committed to Northern Michigan University and plans to compete in men’s basketball.

DeForest coach Craig Weisbrod and junior Max Weisbrod speak to the media after top-seeded and top-ranked Kimberly rode the hot hand of junior point guard Jackson Paveletzke to a 63-42 victory Saturday in a WIAA Division 1 state semifinal at Menominee Nation Arena.

Weisbrod, a 6-foot-3 point guard, helped lead the Norskies to the WIAA Division 1 state semifinals in boys basketball last season.

He averaged 18.2 points, about 5 rebounds and 8.0 assists per game and shot 42.6% from 3-point range and 86.6% from the free throw line.

Weisbrod was a third-team selection on The Associated Press All-State boys basketball team, which was selected by a statewide panel of sports reporters.

Weisbrod was a first-team choice on the Wisconsin State Journal’s 2020-21 All-Area boys basketball team.

He was a first-team pick on the Wisconsin Basketball Coaches Association Division 2 All-State team.

His 33-point effort carried the Norskies to victory over Hartland Arrowhead in the sectional title game.

He had 20 points and four assists in a state semifinal loss to Kimberly.

DeForest -- coached by Craig Weisbrod, who's Max's father -- played all road games last season due to the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding health and gathering rules in Dane County.

Northern Michigan is an NCAA Division II program in Marquette, Michigan.

Weisbrod is interested in studying business in college.

Weisbrod tweeted: “Excited to announce my commitment to Northern Michigan.”
