SEC, first offer for '14 Texas safety

Edwin Freeman, Arlington Bowie's 6-foot-1, 200-pound sophomore safety, nabs his first offer Friday from way of the SEC. Several others expected to follow...

"Texas A&M offered me," said Edwin Freeman.

"I've been talking to them for the last couple months," he noted. "They told me they like my size and how physical I am, and that they need me."

At this point, A&M and Texas are the only two programs he is hearing from.

"Texas came to the school earlier this year to see my film. They've been keeping in touch. They're supposed to come up again for spring ball."

According to Bowie head coach Kenny Perry, the 'Horns won't be the only ones swinging by.

"Oh, all the major schools know about him, and they all plan on coming out. By the end of spring, this kid will have just about every offer in front of him. He'll be national."

Locals like TCU, SMU and Baylor are "for sure" on the visit list.

A starter at safety last season, Freeman will see some time at running back this year, filling the big shoes of Missouri signee Russell Hansbrough.

"We're going to play him both ways, just because of his athletic ability," said Perry. "He's a game changer. He just is. He made some big plays for us last year, and we expect the same from him this year."

Freeman will make his first visit this spring, to College Station next weekend for the Aggies' spring game.

"I'm not sure what to expect," he admitted. "I'm excited though."
