OL Dalton Freeman Profile

4-star offensive lineman Dalton Freeman visited Death Valley earlier this month to watch the Tigers battle the Hokies.

"It was awesome," he told CUTigers.com of his trip. "It is never a bad experience when you go to Clemson. I enjoy being around the staff, the players and the other recruits. The game wasn't a lot of fun, but everything else was."

Freeman also said two official visits are now officially in the books and one is on tap for this weekend.

"I have taken official visits to Penn State and Colorado. I am going to Florida State this weekend for an official visit."

Clemson will get one of the remaining official visits.

"I am looking to take one to Clemson. I may take one to Tennessee or possibly Florida. There are still others in consideration also," said Freeman.

As Freeman has maintained throughout the recruiting process, a verbal commitment will not come until he has completed his official visits.

"I am going to take my other visits. Then I will go from there and play it by ear," said Freeman.

The season is going well for Freeman at Pelion High.

"Right now we are 7-1. We have our biggest game this week. We play Columbia. They are second in the state and we are sixth," said the star lineman.

Clemson assistant Brad Scott has built a strong relationship with Dalton over the past few years.

"He tells me he would love to have the opportunity to coach me. He has a good plan for me. He feels like if I come to Clemson they would have a very good offensive line. He thinks Clemson will have a good offensive line and a good chance to compete for championships," said Freeman.

Freeman also has strong relationships with some of Clemson's newest offensive linemen.

"I have become close with a lot of the freshmen. I got to know Landon, David, Wilson and Mason well. I have also met some of the other prospects like R.J. Mattes. I think he is pretty strong on Clemson," added Freeman.
