Shooting Guard Allerik Freeman Commits to UCLA

Highly touted 2013 recruit Allerik Freeman has verbally committed to UCLA. Freeman, a 6-4 combo guard who will play his senior season at Findlay Prep (NV), made the decision during his official visit to UCLA on Saturday. Via CBSSports.com: “Freeman made it clear the hard work paid off: he committed to UCLA. ‘I’m officially a UCLA Bruin,’ Freeman tweeted. ‘Thank you too [sic] all the people who supported me and especially my family! All love. Long way to go though.’ Freeman, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard, was once ranked as a five-star recruit in the class of 2013. Although he dropped to No. 60 in the most-recent rankings, it’s still an important commitment for the Bruins. Freeman is a powerful scoring guard who uses his body to finish around the rim. He has a good mid-range game and can knock down shots off the bounce. Freeman can make plays off the dribble as well. Once he improves his ball-handling and shooting, Freeman can be a major asset in the backcourt. The two should form a very effective guard pairing over the next few years.”

    He shrunk an inch during the writing of this article! Beware UCLA. You may have a 5’7″ shooting guard by October 2013!
