UCLA grants Howland recruit his release
One of UCLA's early signees under former coach Ben Howland won't be playing basketball for the Bruins next season.LOS ANGELES -- One of UCLA's early signees under former coach Ben Howland won't be playing basketball for the Bruins next season.
The school said Thursday that guard Allerik Freeman of Charlotte, N.C., asked for and was granted his release from a national letter of intent he signed last November.
UCLA says Freeman plans to choose another school in time to play next season.
New Bruins coach Steve Alford says he's supportive of Freeman's decision and that a mutual parting of the ways is the best solution.
Freeman, a 6-foot-4 guard, recently completed his senior season at Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., where he led the school to a 54-game winning streak. He played his first three seasons at Olympic High in Charlotte.
Howland was fired in March after 10 years that included three consecutive Final Four appearances.
