However, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound shooting guard is now at Light of World Christian Academy in Atlanta – and he doesn't blame anyone but himself.
Freeman, who averaged 23.2 points and 9 boards last season at Belleville High (Mich.), was all set to go to Schoolcraft Junior College in Michigan. But then he changed his mind.
``I just messed up," Freeman said. "Then I didn't know what to do. I was going to go to a junior college, but then I decided it was better to go to a prep school for a year so I would still have four years left at a university."
Freeman is a guy who doesn't have a glaring weakness. He gets to the basket with his quickness and strength, can defend and doesn't force a lot on the offensive end. The one area where he may need to work on is the consistency on his perimeter shot.
``Right now I'm really just focusing on the classroom," Freeman said.
Freeman, who turns 19 in January, said that he hasn't received much interest of late – but the schools he likes at this point are Memphis, Louisville and Illinois.
``He's a great athlete who has enormous potential," Light of World coach Mack Cleveland said. "He's got to understand what it takes on and off the court."
``He definitely has a chance to play beyond Division 1 basketball," added Cleveland. "He just to stay focused and listen."
