Warsaw boys basketball coach Doug Ogle confirmed senior Jared Bloom will be a preferred walk-on for the IPFW men's basketball program.
Ogle said Bloom spoke with Mastodons coach Tony Jasick on Wednesday.
"It will be a challenge for him being a walk-on, but I am confident he can do it," Ogle said.
Bloom, a 6-foot guard, averaged 18 points last season for the Tigers.
He was named to the Associated Press All-State honorable mention team and participated in the Hoosier Basketball Top 60 workout.
