San Bernardino County is generally overlooked in the nexus of southern California high school baseball, but Freeman forced people to pay attention with his performance. Playing at a school better known for its basketball prowess, Freeman hit over .500 in the regular season playing strong competition. Freeman's tools are largely average but they play up with his advanced instincts and motor. Offensively Freeman controls the barrel well and makes consistent hard contact with some nascent pull power, although he doesn't project for much pop long-term. His hands are solid and his arm is average, profiling better at second base than shortstop. Freeman is not overly physical or toolsy, but his well-rounded skillset, energetic play and excellent makeup appeal to a select group of teams talking about him in the top five rounds. He is committed to Texas Christian.
