The 6-5, 270 pound prospect was back in Death Valley for the third time this fall last Saturday to see the Tigers destroy Louisiana Tech, 51-0.

"I enjoyed it," Freeman told "It was pretty nasty game. I went up with the quarterback from our team. It was pretty impressive. Nobody can slow them down. Even when they put in the second team they dominate the game."

Not surprisingly, the offensive line play has also caught Freeman's attention.

"They killed them. Just look at the rushing stats. It was very impressive. That is why they have one of the best offensive lines in the nation," he said.

Coach Brad Scott saw Dalton play last Friday night.

"Coach Scott came to my game Friday (Sept 29). We have a 260 pound tailback so we run the ball most of the time. A lot of times we run to the left side where I am or I pull to block on the other side. Coach Scott said he liked the way I can move.

"He still tells me I am one of his favorite guys. He tells me he is looking forward to me playing up there some day."

The Tigers have not yet offered the junior lineman, but that should change over the next few months.

"We are not rushing anything," Freeman said. "He knows I am not ready to commit yet so there is no hurry. I am going to take my time and do it right. I should be ready to commit at least by the spring. I want to enjoy the recruiting process a little first."

The Tigers are not the only team showing early interest for the Pelion standout.

"I am also hearing from Wake Forest and South Carolina," he said. "They have picked up all of a sudden. I am also hearing from Tennessee and Virginia Tech. I am getting mail from everyone across the country." Top Stories
