Steinfeldt’s Twitter post read as follows:
“First off I’d like to thank God for giving me the blessings and talents to play the sport I love. Second I’d like to thank all my coaches whose help guide me through this journey. I’d also like to thank the entire Bloomington North football staff and Coach Bless for giving me the opportunity to wear Maroon and Gold proudly across my chest. Third I want to thank my mom and dad for always being my number one fans and always being there for me and help guiding me through this process. Lastly I’d like to thank all of the coaches who’d take time out of their day and recruited me, you’d really make my dream come true of being a Division 1 athlete, and I wish you all the best of luck in your upcoming season. With that being said, I’m excited to announce that I’m staying home and I’m committed to Indiana University! Go Hoosiers! #LEO”
