4 Star JUCO WR looking at Cats

Four-star wide receiver Larry Freeman has been spectacular throughout his time at Pearl River Community College. With Signing Day only three months away recruiting has picked up and Freeman has narrowed it down to a Top 5. Check what Freeman has to say about how the Cats are recruiting him!

While the 6-3, 220-pound prospect should make his name catching passes at the Division I-A level he has spent much of 2006 at a position he used to play.

"I'm being recruited by everyone as a receiver but I've played a lot of quarterback this year. Our quarterback got injured so I've taken a lot of snaps. It definitely brings back a lot of memories from high school," he laughed. "I feel like I've played pretty well but it's not a long-term thing."

Freeman has completed 42 of 72 passes for almost 600 yards and two touchdowns since starting to help out behind center. In last week's playoff victory he caught two long touchdowns passes helping Pearl City advance.

His size and playmaking ability in the open field undoubtedly have him pinned at the top of recruiting boards at several schools.

"South Carolina, Tennessee, Iowa State, Kansas State and UCF are the schools I'm still looking at," said Freeman. "I'm visiting South Carolina next weekend (Nov. 18) because we have a little break. I'm going to try to visit the others. This just worked out because of our schedule."

Freeman has good hands and is one of the more physical wide receivers available in the Class of 2007. He regularly goes across the middle of the field to catch passes and blocks well on the outside. K-State's coaches think he would be a great fit in their offensive scheme.

"The coaches at K-State told me they want to pass the ball and they're going to need big-time receivers to come in and make plays. They've talked a lot about doing all they can to just get the ball to their receivers so they can do what they do best. I would probably be able to play pretty early there."

Freeman wants to make his decision before the end of December so between football and visits he should be very busy.
