One of the top guards in the class of 2013, Allerik Freeman, has been getting wooed by schools across the country. As of today, only two remain.
According to the 6-foot-4 guard from Charlotte (N.C.) Olympic's summer coach George Burgess, the nation's No. 24 player in the 2013 Rivals150 cut his list on Thursday.
According to Burgess, Freeman has learned enough about the schools involved that he felt comfortable cutting his list.
"Those are the two schools that have been in there from the start to finish and have recruited him the hardest," said Burgess of the four-star guard. "He's had a chance to build the strongest relationship with those two schools."
During his junior season, Freeman was part of a squad that put together a 24-2 record.
"It went real well. They had a great team, the coach did a great job and they had a successful season," said Burgess. "They are more about team than individual accomplishments."
Individually, Freeman stepped his game up as well. Known as a mid-range scorer, he worked on extending his range.
"I think he's matured and learned how to slow down a little bit," said Burgess. "He's learned how to pick his spots so he can be more effective doing less. He's also extended his range out to the three point line and gotten more consistent from there."
While he has cut his list down to two schools, Freeman isn't in a rush to make any decision. He'll likely take additional visits to Philadelphia and Lawrence and could wait until the Fall to make his final choice.
"He's going to try and do some visits," said Burgess. "He probably won't make a decision until the fall but it's one of those things that when he feels it he will do it so it's kind of hard to give a timeline."
