Here are Freeman’s comments on each school.
Maryland: “Maryland is the hometown school and they’ve been recruiting me for a while now. I’ve built a strong relationship with them and been on campus a good amount of time being how close it is to home.”
Iowa: “Being that it’s in Iowa, I was hesitant about the area until I got down there and was blown away by the campus and people. It’s the true definition of a college town. The support they have for basketball is really, really attractive Coach (Fran) McCaffrey has been the most active out of all the head coaches recruiting me.”
Rutgers: “Steve Pikiell is a ball of energy and he has dedicated his life to Rutgers basketball. He’s all in. Just being around him, his energy is contagious. I have spent a lot of time in New Jersey growing up so going there wouldn’t be a big change of scenery for me. They are often looked at as “sleepers” but I really like Rutgers.”
Freeman plans to announce his decision in December. He is also looking at LSU and Texas.
