Freeman Open to All Possibilities
"I was out there at their prep school and after being there it just wasn't really what I was looking for," Freeman told JCFootball.com. "I have a lot of respect for the people who can do that, but it wasn't the lifestyle I wanted, so I came back home."
After talking with Eddie Elder, a close friend and confidant, Freeman decided CSM was the right school to hook on with and try to earn a D-1 scholarship.
"It was a combination of Eddie and of the coaches here at CSM," Freeman said. "Eddie is like a big brother to me and I knew he would steer me right and when I talked to the coaches here I knew they would get the most out of me as a player and as a person."
Freeman didn't start right away for the Bulldogs, but did take over the reigns of the CSM attack once they began league play.
"They coaches wanted to get a guy a little more athletic in there," Freeman noted. "We split time, but I started once we started league games."
Freeman's stats for his freshman season were 25 of 58 on his pass attempts for 530 yards with five touchdowns and three interceptions while rushing for nearly 500 more yards and four more scores.
"I've become a lot better at throwing since then," Freeman said. "All offseason I've been throwing and working on things like my timing with my receivers.
"I'm a good runner, but I feel like I'm balanced and that I can do both."
On the recruiting front, Freeman said some of the schools recruiting him have told him they like him on the defensive side of the ball and that suits him just fine.
"Washington State and Arizona State have both talked to me and they said they like me at safety," Freeman said. "Cal Poly and Jackson State both like me at quarterback and Jackson State wants me to play baseball too.
"I'm fine with playing safety. I love contact and I love to play football, so that would be fine. I just want to find the right option for me and then I'll see what happens."
Freeman is on pace to graduate this December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
