Freeman Pushing Decision Back

Arlington (TX) Bowie linebacker Edwin Freeman is pushing his decision back thanks to a new offer.

Many eyes are on the recruitment of Arlington (TX) Bowie linebacker Edwin Freeman. The four-star and nation's No. 16 outside linebacker prospect according to FOX Sports NEXT, is drawing closer to a decision.

Freeman and his Bowie teammates recently wrapped up spring ball and several colleges made their way to the school the see the abundance of D-1 prospects. Although he missed the first week due to an injury, Freeman played both sides of the ball this spring and says overall it was a good spring camp.

"It's been good, we just got spring over with," Freeman said. "It went pretty good, I went both ways, I played runningback. I'm playing linebacker still."

Several weeks ago Freeman had hoped to make a decision at the conclusion of spring ball. However, a wrench, aka LSU, was thrown into the mix and now he's pushed his decision back.

"I'm pushing it back a little bit because LSU just offered and they want me to get down there," he said. "The coach came up and I talked to him."

Freeman has told several media outlets that he will make his final decision between Texas, TCU and Texas A&M. Do the Tigers have a chance to sneak in?

"They might get in it, I just have to get down there and talk to them," he said of LSU.

Freeman still maintains his top three are Texas, TCU and Texas A&M in that order. His building relationship with the Texas coaches is what has the Longhorns standing out at the moment.

"I've been down there and I talk to them a lot," he said.

TCU still has a benefit in their corner with Kenny Perry, Freeman's ex-coach at Bowie and now the recruiting coordinator at TCU. Freeman says the two have talked plenty about him coming to TCU, but he hasn't felt pressure from his old coach.

"I know what he wants me to do, but he never really pressures me," Freeman said of Perry.

Regardless of what Freeman decides, he knows he's ready to be rid of the stress that comes with recruiting and put his focus on the upcoming season.

"It's stressful," he said. "I want to have my decision done by this summer before the season starts."
