Freeman Enjoying Oregon

Imperial (Calif.) running back Royce Freeman discusses his Oregon visit.

Imperial running back Royce Freeman has continued to be recruited strongly by Oregon. He is currently in Eugene with teammate Chris Carter to camp with the Ducks. So far, things seems to be going well.

"We're just having a blast getting to know the area and the school," Freeman said. "It feels great out here."

Freeman said he's still hearing from Florida, UCLA and Washington, but likes the vibe he is getting from Oregon. Recruiting coordinator Jim Fisher has been taking the athletes on a tour of the campus and facilities and Freeman has been impressed with what he's seen so far.

"I don't think anyone is going to come close to what they're going to have projected coming up," Freeman said. "It's just going to be amazing."

Freeman said that he met the coaching staff and has spent quality time with running backs coach Gary Campbell. Through drills, Freeman is starting to learn about Campbell's coaching style and has been eager to take in advice from the veteran coach as their relationship continues to build.

"It's growing," Freeman said. "He's become a great supervisor over me. He's taught me many things, like to pay attention to detail in an offense and what they do."

Freeman will leave Eugene on Friday, but will be back in the state of Oregon for The Opening at Nike's Campus, which kicks off on July 1. He said that he's honored to be included among the list of invites and is excited to receive further instruction at the camp.

"I'm going to do what I do best, do me and just have fun," Freeman said. "Try hard at everything and take in what all of the coaches have to say and just learn from other players."

Freeman has no plans as of now to visit other schools, but isn't ruling anything out over the summer. As far as a decision timeline goes, Freeman is keeping everything open.

"When I feel right, it's going to happen," Freeman said.
