Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Freedman is an elite shooter as a left-hander. He is a heady play-maker and can get the ball to his teammates well. He is not left handed dominant as he can make plays going either way. He knows his role, but defense could be an issue eventually.

Location: Nike Elite 100 Camp (St. Louis, Mo.)

Freedman is playing at the state’s premier high school program. That always bodes well for a HS prospect. He’s a talented yet physically limited option who didn’t try to do too much in this elite setting.

Evaluator: Jonathan Hemingway
Location: Hoop Hall Classic (Springfield, Mass.)

Freedman is a specialist as a long range bomber. He got very hot in this game vs. Oak Hill Academy and helped keep his team in it for a half. He finished with 17 points which included 5 three pointers. The left handed shooter hit shots coming off double staggers and has enough handle to get his own when the defense closes out long. He does lack ideal height as a SG.
