One of Villanova's top recruiting targets for the class of 2013, Allerik Freeman, appears to have finalized his official visit schedule. The good news: Villanova will receive one of his 5 official vists, and it will happen on September 28th according to Freeman.
I also will be taking officials to villanova sept.28th and duke October 19th— Allerik Freeman (@Al_freeman) August 23, 2012
Freeman earlier tweeted that he will also be taking official visits to UCLA on September 7th and Ohio State on September 14th.
Freeman will be playing his high school basketball this season at Las Vegas powerhouse Findlay Prep where he'll join a team full of high-major talent such as Nigel Williams-Goss, Christian Wood, and Stanford Robinson, who just announced he will attend as well.
Freeman looks like the total package, with above-average ball handling skills that allow him to attack the rim as well as a strong jumpshot from the perimeter. His ability to score in multiple ways makes him an attractive piece for Villanova, even though they currently have a roster full of guards.
The official visit announcement is expected, but nonetheless good news, people. I would have liked to have him visit for Hoops Mania just for the hoopla of the thing, though I think he visited for that last year. The last visit going to Duke worries me, especially since he is a North Carolina kid.
