Four-star forward Donnie Freeman announced he has narrowed his choices to 5 schools and 3 of those schools are from the B1G: Maryland, Iowa, and Rutgers.

The DC native broke down each of his choices and why he liked each one to Joe Tipton of On3 Sports.

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.
