The most important choice for Freeman, who got cut from his middle school team and did not play high school varsity basketball until his junior year, might not have been the decision he made Monday but the decision he made last year to not go to college directly out of Osbourn. Freeman said at South Kent he has diversified his offensive game in particular, polishing his 12- to 15-foot jump shot, which in turn has boosted his confidence.
“The transition from high school to college would have extremely damaged my self-esteem and the way I thought of what college would be like,” Freeman said. “I thought the transition in the beginning of the school year was very, very hard. But once I started getting used to it, I accepted it and loved it.”
