Kansas State added a late addition to its 2015 class as California native Ron Freeman committed to the Wildcats, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com. The 6-foot-5 Freeman was previously committed to Cal State Fullerton as a member of the 2014 class, but opted to do an additional year of prep school at Future College Prep.
A scoring wing with good length, Freeman joins a large 2015 recruiting haul for the Wildcats that includes three-star guards Barry Brown, Kamau Stokes and junior college guard Corlbe Ervin while three-star forwards Isaiah Maurice and Dean Wade and three-star center Dante Williams round out the group.
Of the seven-man recruiting class for Kansas State, Freeman is a unique piece because he has good size on the wing. In a recruiting class of smaller guards and front-court players, Freeman should be a decent fit. The new 2015 recruiting class helps offset the loss of five players this offseason for Kansas State. Forward Malek Harris and guards Marcus Foster and Tre Harris were dismissed from the program while Jevon Thomas and Nigel Johnson decided to transfer.
