With all of the coaching changes each spring, there are always some defections and new destinations for prospects. Tuesday afternoon, Allerik Freeman found his new home.
The No. 81 player in the class of 2013 originally signed with UCLA in the fall but asked for his release a few weeks ago after the hiring of Steve Alford in Westwood. Last week, Freeman visited Minnesota and Xavier before deciding that he would be a Baylor Bear.
While Freeman was unavailable for immediate comment, sources close to his recruitment confirmed his commitment. Given the timing and how few players are available, he is a very good pull for Scott Drew and his staff.
At 6-foot-4, Freeman is a good-sized shooting guard who can finish at the rim and is a good pull-up jump shooter. His physical frame allows him to be a strong defender when he wants to be.
With Freeman in the fold, the Bears' 2013 recruiting class features a foursome of four-star high school prospects. Wing Ishmail Wainright, center Dominic Woodson and power forward Johnathan Motley join Freeman as four-stars, while junior college point guard Kenny Chery is a three-star floor general.
