Texas senior, Sam Freeman commits to the Gophers

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Minnesota vs Louisville Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Gopher hoops just received commitment from Sam Freeman at a position of great need.

Next season Gopher hoops appeared to have a dearth of big men, but Richard Pitino and staff have secured one high school big man to come in and have a chance to compete immediately.

Sam Freeman

HT: 6’10”
WT: 230
High School: Northwest HS in Justin, TX

Freeman is a big bodied center who is known primarily as a rebounder and defender. Will be fun to see him playing off Oturu in the coming years and it should be a physical paint for the Gophers. I really like how these two could potentially compliment each other offensively and really own the paint defensively.

More to come on Freeman and Gopher recruiting soon, but welcome to Dinkytown.
