Freeman cuts list to two

Five-star prospect Allerik Freeman is now down to two schools.

One of the best prospects in the class of 2013 is now down to two schools. Charlotte (NC) Olympic standout Allerik Freeman has narrowed his choices down to Villanova and Kansas. With double-figure offers, the No. 13 prospect in the class now will try to make an even tougher decision, which school to attend.

"I just felt that those two schools were the best for me," said Freeman on cutting down his list. "I felt the most comfortable with those coaching staffs, and I just liked them the most."

Already Kansas has two perimeter commitments in the 2013 class. One is Brannen Greene and the other is Conner Frankamp. According to Freeman he feels he could complement those two very well.

"Me and Brannen could make a great backcourt," said Freeman. "I haven't seen Conner Frankamp, but my understanding is he can really shoot the ball. I just feel I would fit in great with those guys."

According to Freeman, he also likes the way the Kansas staff has recruited him and what the school represents.

"Kansas is all about basketball," said Freeman. "They have great coaches, great players, and great tradition."

Villanova is a school that has long been known for quality play on the perimeter, that is a huge reason why the Wildcats made the final two.

"With Villanova I just love the entire coaching staff," Freeman explained. "They are known for their guards and they have a great basketball tradition as well."

He continued, "I feel their style of play fits me well because they give their guards the ball and really let them play."

In terms of what is next for Freeman, he would like to get out and see both the schools.

"Right now I am down to two and I will continue talking to the coaches and getting to know them," said Freeman. "With AAU coming up shortly hopefully I will have time to get out see the campuses in between AAU tournaments"

For Freeman the next cut down to his list will be the most difficult, and he says it could happen at any time.

"I have no timetable for a decision or anything," said Freeman. "Both schools are even in my mind right now, and I will just make a decision when I feel it is right."
