K-State men’s basketball coach Bruce Weber announced the signing of shooting guard Ron Freeman from Inglewood, California.

“We are excited to add Ron to our team and complete our recruiting class,” Weber said. “He is a young man that can give us some versatility with his athleticism and ability to score the ball. He is not only a great shooter with terrific jumping ability but also has exceptional length for both the shooting guard and small forward spots. I think his time in the prep school ranks where he played against some of the top players in the country will prove to be very valuable to his development.”

Freeman comes to K-State out of Future College Prep School in Harbor CIty, California.

The 6’5″ guard averaged 16.6 points per game on 48 percent shooting including shooting 38 percent from long range in his year at prep school.

Prior to prep school he was the 15th ranked recruit out of California and was named All-State Division Four from Cal-Hi Sports after his senior year at Junipero Serra High School in Gardena, California. Also, Freeman garnered All-League and All-Area honors for his senior year performance.

“He is a superb kid,” Junipero Serra head coach Dwan Hurt said. “He has great vision and was just a pleasure to coach… I felt that he was a top division one player and I knew that he could get there with his hard work and dedication.”

Freeman rounds out a class of six scholarship freshman and 10 new players for the 2015-16 season.
