    Default Gophers receive a commitment from Texas center Sam Freeman

    The Gophers have received a commitment from Justin, TX. center Sam Freeman. The 6-foot-10, 220-pound big-man chose the Gophers over interest from Virginia Tech and TCU. He took his second visit to Minnesota last weekend and had Virginia Tech in his final-two before head coach Buzz Williams departed for Texas A&M.

    Freeman now joins guard Tre Williams as the second player in Minnesota’s 2019 recruiting class. He averaged 13.5 points per game, 11 rebounds and 1.5 blockers per game at Northwest High School in Texas.

    With Minnesota searching for more depth in the post, Freeman will likely fit into the rotation early in his career. He will certainly be tasked with helping on the glass and adding much-needed rim protection to the roster. With Matz Stockman and Jordan Murphy graduating, the Gophers will need to inject resources into the frontcourt.

    Before Freeman’s commitment, the Gophers had four scholarship spots to fill. This means they’ll need to add at least three additional players before next season.

    Good get. It was always gonna be hard to get a promising young center to commit knowing Oturu was playing well as a freshmen. It seems like we filled a need with a guy who can be more than just an empty body.

    "I will be commenting to..." Huh?

    Also, couldn't they have given him a nice Gopher uniform?

    Anyways, excited he's a Gopher. Seems like a good kid, hardworker and very athletic for his size.

    Good get. Hopefully a big strong inside presence for four years. I like hearing about kids who are growing late. Maybe he'll grow some more.

    judging by this video it appears he's left handed https://twitter.com/Ballislife/statu...78208897347585

    He looks comfortable handling the ball. I know these are just highlights. but he looks really fluid, which is good to see for his size..

    I wonder if Pitino wouldn't be afraid to play Oturu at the 4 and Freeman at the 5 for a little bit this season

    welcome aboard Sam.

    I like the addition. with Oturu here we obviously don't need this guy to make a major impact. with Freeman and Curry we have options for the backup 5 spot now.

    For whatever it's worth, Rivals has him ranked as the #32 Center in this class

    Like you've never had an auto-correct issue before.
    Attention: If the above comment sounds puzzling, adjust your sarcasm setting and try again.

    Another relentless rebounder out of Texas? I'll take it.
