On Monday, Pitt associate head coach Milan Brown called up former George Washington guard Brayon Freeman and started a relationship with the transfer guard.
Freeman told Pittsburgh Sports Now that Brown called him on Monday, and that he is planning to speak with the Pitt staff again on Tuesday.
“He basically said Pitt is looking for some guys to bring in that can change the program around,” Freeman said. “I know some about the program. It’s an ACC program, and I know of the head coach pretty well. I have heard about him.”
Freeman told PSN that he has also heard from Arizona State, Cincinnati, St. Bonaventure, Iona, George Mason, and more schools since entering the portal. He said he has some zoom meetings set up but does not have a zoom with Pitt set up as of yet. A 6-foot-2 point guard, he averaged 10.3 points and 3.7 assists per game this season, in his freshman campaign. He shot 43% from field-goal range, and 44% from three-point range this year.
A member of the class of 2021, Freeman was a top-200 prospect in the class coming out of high school, and chose George Washington over offers from Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Florida, and more.
