KSU OT Target Phillip Freeman Has Six Offers

Copiah-Lincoln community college has made a habit of turning out BCS conference prospects on a near annual basis. One of the latest Co-Lin products, Phillip Freeman, is holding six division one offers. He talks with Scout.com about the state of his recruitment today.

"Our season is going okay," said Phillip Freeman. "We're 3-5 right now and our last game is tomorrow. Hopefully we can win and finish up close to .500."

Despite the win/loss record not being what Phillip hoped, he believes he has improved as a player this season.

"I have really improved on my run blocking, and using my hands a lot more," said Phillip. "My hand placement is a lot better than it has been."

Several division one programs have noticed Phillip's progress and have made the decision to offer him a scholarship.

"I have been offered by Oklahoma State, Mississippi State, UAB, North Texas, Southern Miss and Kansas State said they were going to offfer," said Freeman.

The 6-6, 305 pounder has the size college coaches are looking for and he appears to have the playing style needed to make an early impact at the next level.

"Some of the coaches tell me that they like my quickness and that they like how I play," said Phillip. "They tell me that they really like my pass blocking."

Freeman will be graduating from Co-Lin in December and will be eligible to enroll at a division one institution for the spring semester. Due to the abbreviated time frame, Phillip will be making his college decision in just a few weeks.

"I would like to know for sure by the end of November," said Phillip. "If I am really torn between two schools I guess it could go into the beginning of December."

Freeman has not made any formal plans for official visits, but he has discussed the prospects with most of the interested parties.
