Freeman Helping Bowie To A Great Start

Arlington Bowie 2014 prospect Edwin Freeman is one of the big reasons the Volunteers are off to a 3-1 start.

Arlington (TX) Bowie improved to 3-1 last week with a convincing 55-3 win over Weatherford. Bowie has won two consecutive games since an early season loss to Mesquite. Two weeks ago they defeated what many believed to be the top team in class 5A, Dallas Skyline.

Junior linebacker Edwin Freeman says his team is moving in the right direction.

"It's been pretty good, the loss we had was pretty devastating because we felt that we could've beat them," he said. "But we've got better and now we're 3-1."

One notable change for Freeman has been a change of positions from safety down to linebacker. Freeman is still getting accustomed to the position change.

"I'm still trying to adjust," Freeman said of the change of positions. "I'm still trying to find myself there right now. I'm missing safety a lot."

Freeman is considered one of the top 2014 prospects in the country. Ranked as the no. 109 prospect in the country in the FOXSportsNext.com 300, the talented athlete has offers from Baylor, Texas, Houston, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Texas A&M to name a few.

"It's going pretty good, coaches are on Facebook adding me and writing me and telling me about their schools. I'm getting a lot of mail too," he said.

Freeman says another SEC program has come into the picture.

"Missouri might offer soon," he said.

Freeman attended a TCU camp over the summer and oddly enough he worked out for the staff as a linebacker. Although his teammate Steve Wesley is committed to the Frogs' 2013 class, Freeman says he hasn't heard much from the Ft. Worth school.

"I haven't really heard anything from them," Freeman said of the Frogs.
