TE/LB Marcus Freeman 6-3 230 4.6 St. Paul, MN (Cretin Derham-Hall)
"Yes, I committed to Notre Dame." Marcus Freeman said. "The head coaching vacancy wasn't that big of a deal to me.
I like Notre Dame for its tradition and the degree. With the hiring of Coach (Tyrone) Willingham, it was a big plus.
I was going to commit to Notre Dame regardless if they hired a coach or not before signing day but now I'm really excited.
Coach Willingham has done some great things at Stanford and I'm ready to play for him."
Freeman was named 1st team all-state in 2001 and he's considered one of the best prospects in the Midwest.
Marcus chose the Irish over Okalhoma, Miami (Fla.) and others.
