Allerik Freeman commits to Baylor

Allerik Freeman, who decommitted from U.C.L.A. last week, has now committed to Baylor.

Waco over Westwood? Hmmm.

...the best remaining guard in the class of 2013 made his commitment on Tuesday afternoon.

Al Freeman, who decommitted from UCLA in late April, is back off the board to Baylor. The news was confirmed to CBSSports.com by Findlay Prep (Nev.) coach Todd Simon.

The 6-foot-5 Charlotte native visited Minnesota and Xavier last week and was scheduled to take a trip to Waco this weekend. It turns out he didn't even need the visit.

Maybe Freeman not visiting Waco was actually a good thing for the Bears. Anyway, we wish Freeman well in his career. We're sorry it didn't happen in Westwood, as he looked like a great player and someone who could have helped the Bruins right away. It still isn't clear what led Freeman to change his mind and ask out of his Letter of Intent, but the fact that it came just a couple weeks after Steve Alford was hired is probably not a coincidence. Whatever the case, Dan Guerrero's prize hire has plenty of holes to fill on the roster, and after whiffing on some talented prospects, failing to retain a prior commit like Freeman isn't going to instill anyone with confidence. As the recruiting cycle winds down, we will need to see some signs that Alford has things going the right way, preferably with the signing of some promising prospects for the future.

Go Bruins.
