Top-100 senior Allerik Freeman decommits from UCLA
Allerik Freeman is now the top-ranked guard available in the class of 2013, after decommitting from UCLA on Tuesday.
A top 100 guard just hit the board in the class of 2013.
Allerik Freeman, who was committed to UCLA, has reopened his recruitment and decommitted from the Bruins.
The news was confirmed to CBSSports.com by Findlay Prep (Nev.) coach Todd Simon.
“I think Al just wants to exercise all due diligence in making this major life decision with the change in circumstances at UCLA,” Simon said in a text message.
Steve Alford became the new UCLA head coach back in March, replacing the fired Ben Howland. Alford rounded out his staff with assistant coaches Ed Schilling, Duane Broussard and David Grace.
He’s a powerful scoring guard who uses his strength and body to finish through contact around the rim. He is also solid in the mid-range, and makes shots along the baseline as well. Freeman has also improved his ball-handling and penetration ability, leading some to believe he could be a potential replacement for Larry Drew II at the point guard position next year with the Bruins.
Without Freeman, UCLA’s recruiting class includes guards Zach LaVine and Bryce Alford, and forward Noah Allen.
