MARCUS FREEMAN, LB, 6-2, 232, 4.6, HUBER HEIGHTS, OHIO (WAYNE HS):
JH: How did your first game go?
MF: "We lost our first game 21-13 against Cincinnati Oak Hills. I think I played decent. I am not sure I played a well as I could have, but I played OK."
JH: Do you have any individual goals for this season?
MF: "As a team player I want to win as many games as I can and right now I don't care about individual goals."
JH: What is the latest in recruiting?
MF: "I am still looking at a number of schools, but if I would say my top five at the moment is Ohio State, Michigan, Miami, Oklahoma and Notre Dame. I don't have a favorite yet, and I am still considering a lot of different schools."
JH: What is it that stands out about those five schools?
MF: "The tradition of those five schools are the best, and when you consider what they have to offer both from a football and academic standpoint, those five schools are tremendous."
JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?
MF: "Oklahoma has one of the best traditions in the country and I really like Bob Stoops, who obviously is one of the best coaches in the country. If I was go to Oklahoma I know that I would be playing for a national championship every year and playing for a chance to go to a major bowl. Oklahoma plays great defense and I would have the opportunity to play for one of the best defensive teams in the country. There are a lot of things that are appealing about Oklahoma."
JH: Have you scheduled any visits at this point?
MF: "I hope to take at least three visits during the season and then two after it. I haven't even talked to any schools about when I will visit just yet."
