In an attempt to replenish their roster, Pitt will host a transfer from Baylor.
Guard Al Freeman will make a visit soon to check out the Panthers program. This news was first reported by Jon Rothstein.
Baylor transfer Al Freeman will visit NC State this weekend and Pitt next weekend, per a source. Immediately eligible for next season.

Freeman will graduate from Baylor in May and will have one season of college eligibility remaining.
Last season at Baylor, Freeman averaged 9.2 points per game and shot 39% from 3-point range. During the 2015 season, Freeman averaged 11.3 points per game and led the team with 50 three-point field goals.
When coming out of high school (Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nevada), Freeman was ranked as one of the Top 100 recruits in the country. He originally committed to UCLA before de-committing and joining Baylor.
One other thing that should be pointed out is that Freeman was on the Big 12 academic honor roll every year at Baylor.
Freeman would be a welcome addition to Kevin Stallings’ backcourt.
