Freeman Set to Announce

<P>Ohio linebacker Marcus Freeman is set to announce his decision on September 24th. The 6-2, 230-pound linebacker has narrowed his list and Notre Dame is included on his list. Do the Irish have a chance to land this super prospect?

Huber Heights, OH linebacker Marcus Freeman will announce his decision at a press conference on September 24th. The same press conference announces his nomination to the Army All-Star game in San Antonio.

Freeman says he's basically down to Notre Dame and Ohio State. "Those are my top two schools and I will chose from those two."

Freeman has been to Notre Dame but it was during the Davie ara and he has not met the current coaching staff. Freeman says that won't be a problem for him. "That won't be a problem. I've been to Notre Dame and I know what it's like there," said Freeman. "I've talked to the coaching staff and I've learned everything I need to know about Notre Dame. They've been great in keeping me informed."

The rumor has been that Freeman has been leaning to Ohio State the entire time and will likely choose Ohio State on September 24th. "That's not right. It's really 50/50 between Notre Dame and Ohio State."

Freeman says he can visit Notre Dame after his announcement no matter if he chooses Notre Dame or not. "If I didn't choose Notre Dame, I'd still like to visit. If I did choose Notre Dame, obviously I will visit."

Freeman says he will sit down with his family this weekend and decide where he wants to go to school. "We'll sit down this weekend and weigh the pros and cons of each school. Will write it down on paper and take a look at it."

The star linebacker says he's been in constant contact with the Notre Dame staff and feels comfortable making his decision without visiting Notre Dame.

Comments. I really don't know what to think. He made it clear that it was 50/50 right now. Everyone thinks he will choose Ohio State and he probably will. Still, he left me scratching my head. I'm sure Notre Dame will do all they can to get him to visit this weekend. If he makes a visit this weekend, look out. If not, I have a hard time believing he will choose Notre Dame without visiting. Still, Isaiah Gardner and Ashley McConnell did the same thing last year. I really have no idea what to expect when he announces but I will keep digging.
