Scoring the ball is what 2009 prospect Josh Freelove does best, and he is off to a strong start this season. High-majors are quickly taking notice of the talented 6-foot, 160-pound point guard from Sagemont High School in Weston, Fla., and some mid-majors have already offered.
With two games under his belt, Freelove is averaging 23.5 points per game for Sagemont after averaging 14.1 points per game as a freshman.
"A scoring point guard is the best description for Josh," said Sagemont head coach Adam Ross. "He has off the chart athleticism, and he can really shoot the ball. He started for us as a freshman and shot 41 percent from three."
UNC-Greensboro, William & Mary and Manhattan have also offered after watching Freelove play this summer with the Broward Bobcats.
Coach Ross also noted that LSU, Penn State, Maryland, Florida State, Miami and Stanford are also pursuing Freelove, with Miami and Stanford showing the strongest interest.
A strong student, Freelove will give heavy consideration to academics when the time comes to choose a school.
"His family will lean towards the better academic schools," said Coach Ross. "Stanford will certainly be a school he considers if they offer. William & Mary is also in a good position, since it is so strong academically."
