Heldt had scholarship offers from Green Bay, Toledo, Northern Illinois and Xavier.  He had also visited Davidson recently and felt comfortable there, but it came down to Heldt liking new coach Steve Wojciechowski and Marquette more.

Heldt is the second player to committ to Marquette from the 2015 class, joining Sun Prairie’s Nick Noskowiak who verbally committed earlier.

Rice Lake power forward Henry Ellenson also made an official visit to Marquette late last week.  He is Noskowiak’s AAU teammate and is being recruited by a number of national powers, including Duke, North Carolina and UCLA.
