Just a few weeks ago, Allerik Freeman asserted that he was all UCLA. All of the sudden, that has changed.
A 6-foot-4 senior shooting guard at Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep who ranks no. 81 nationally in the class of 2013, Freeman has backed off of his commitment to the Bruins and will be seeking a release.
The news that Freeman will ask new UCLA coach Steve Alford for a release was confirmed by his high school coach Todd Simon.
"I think Al just wants to exercise all due diligence in making this major life decision," Simon told Rivals.com via text message.
Now that he has opened things back up, Freeman is the highest ranked available recruit after the nation's top player Andrew Wiggins.
Freeman has expressed a desire to play the point, but he seems to be more of a natural two guard. He can be a very good defender, has the physicality to finish at the rim and is a good mid-range jump shooter.
