4-Star Power Forward Picks Syracuse Over Alabama
Early Thursday afternoon, class of 2024 4-star recruit Donnie Freeman committed to Syracuse. Freeman chose Syracuse over Iowa, Texas, Georgia Tech, and Alabama.
Syracuse was one of the first programs to offer Freeman, sending the offer in August of 2021.
"You immediately notice the basketball frame with Donnie Freeman. He has the long arms with the wide-set shoulders, a frame that should immediately add weight once it gets in a college weight program. Freeman has natural shot blocking timing. He does a good job contesting without fouling. You’d like to see him rebound it more consistently, but there is natural athleticism and fluidity in his movements. Offensively, Freeman can knock down a catch and shoot/pick and pop three. He has good form on his shot with a consistent release. He has also developed a one/two dribble pull up, comfortably getting to the elbows and mid range. Like to see him finish better in traffic. All in all, there are a lot of natural, projectable tools here." wrote On3's scouting report.
Alabama has yet to receive any commitments from the 2024 recruiting class, however, they are currently targeting multiple top recruits such as Aiden Sherell, Boogie Fland, and Jarin Stevenson.
Syracuse currently holds the sixth-best class for 2024, currently having the commitments of 4-star Elijah Moore and Donnie Freeman.
