Another Major for Freeman

A Big Ten now joins Texas A&M in the early chase for Edwin Freeman, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound sophomore safety out of Arlington (TX) Bowie.

"Nebraska just offered me," said Edwin Freeman Tuesday evening. "Coach Perry told me."

"I'm not surprised they offered this early," said a source close to Freeman's recruitment. "They want him. And them offering this early lets Edwin know they want him."

"He can flat out cover. He's got the speed, the length. He's smart. He sees things forming before they ever do," the source continued.

According to Bowie Head Coach Kenny Perry, "By the end of spring, this kid will have just about every offer in front of him. He'll be national."

Freeman sits at three offers now: Huskers, Aggies, and the Cougars of Houston.

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."
