Shooting Guard Allerik Freeman Commits to UCLA

by September 10, 2012

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 “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.”
