CBS just came out with a list of their top 12 transfers coming into the 2017-18 season. They are ranked based on potential impact and coming in at #4 is NC State’s Allerick (Al) Freeman.
Here is what they had to say:
Former Baylor guard Al Freeman could be a huge factor to what new NC State coach Kevin Keatts does in his inaugural season.
Freeman, a graduate transfer who averaged 9.4 points and knocked down 114 3-pointers in his Baylor career, is a versatile swingman who can defend all three guard positions and is a solid producer off the ball.
During his career, he’s also thrived in high-usage on offense. In the 2015-16 season, the only one in which he averaged 30 minutes per game, his per-40 averages were 15.1 points and 4.5 rebounds. So given what the Wolfpack gave up to the NBA in Dennis Smith Jr. and Terry Henderson, he could be an impact scorer if needed and provides a veteran presence for a relatively young team littered with high-level talent.
Let’s hope they’re right as Keatts is going to need Al Freeman to be one of his top scorers if this Wolfpack team is going to make any noise.
In case you are a little behind here, Al Freeman is a Baylor grad transfer who will suit up this season for NC State. Here is the rundown of who he is, and here are some highlights to get you acquainted.
