Freeman Chooses The Gamecocks
Freeman, who is rated a 4-star prospect by Scout.com, shared why he decided to commit to the Gamecocks.
"Yeah, I committed to South Carolina. They treated me good, and they treated me like family. I felt at home last night when I went with one of the receivers, Kenny (McKinley), and he showed me a good time. Me and him got real close. He treated me like we'd been knowing each other for a while. The coaches and everybody treated me good. When I went to the game on Saturday, the fans were screaming out my name and stuff. That made me feel real good."
Freeman, who weighs in at 6'3 and 220 pounds, possesses a unique combination of size and speed for a receiver, and he believes he can make an early impact at South Carolina.
"They want me to come in right away and start. They don't know if (Sidney) Rice is going to go to the NFL or not, but any way it goes, they say right now they've got two good receivers and they need a third one. They say they want me to come in and catch a lot of balls for them."
Head Coach Steve Spurrier has said repeatedly in recent weeks that he believes this team is capable of competing for an SEC Championship next season, and Freeman shares that belief.
"I think we're going to win an SEC Championship. They're real close, and like they were saying, they need a couple more game breakers like myself. I think that's what I bring to the table. I think we'll be real good next year."
Lastly, Freeman wanted to share a message with the South Carolina fans.
"Tell them to get ready. I'm going to put on a show for them next year."
Freeman projects as a December graduate, and thus will have the opportunity to go through spring practice with Gamecocks. He has three years to play two after spending his first two years at junior college.
Freeman becomes the Gamecocks twelfth commitment of the 2007 recruiting class, and he joins Michael Bowman and Matt Clements as wide receivers being brought in with this class.
