Trip Report: David Freeman

One of the more underrated backs in the state of California this past season was Inglewood RB David Freeman. He had a standout junior season and followed that up with a solid senior season and he took his official visit to Washington this past weekend. Dawgman.com caught up with Freeman and he talked about his visit and the highlight of the trip was meeting and spending time with the players...

"I felt real good up (at Washington)," Freeman said about his second trip to Montlake. "I got to hang out with the other players and they really made me feel comfortable with my decision because if I don't have a connection with them, then why would I want to go to that school?"

Freeman's host on his visit was Victor Aiyewa and the hard-hitting safety spent time showing Freeman around the area and introducing him to some of his future teammates.

"I got to meet Nate (Williams), Quinton (Richardson), Jordan (Murchison) and Brandon Johnson and all of us just hung out," Freeman said.

Most of those players are defensive backs so is Freeman being considered at that position?

"Nah, they told me they like me at running back, but those were just the guys we hung out with," Freeman said. "I liked all of them and they really made me feel like Washington was the right choice for me."

Freeman's father accompanied him on his unofficial visit this past summer, so this weekend was about his mother getting a feel for where he son would be spending the next four or five years of his life.

"She loved it," Freeman said. "I wanted her to see what the school was about and how great it is up here and I think she came away impressed.

"Meeting coach (Tyrone) Willingham was good too because she could get to know him and I think she enjoyed that too."

So, with his official visit out of the way, is Freeman done with recruiting?

"I'd say pretty much on that one," Freeman said. "I might take a visit to another school to check things out, but Washington is where I'm going to go.

"Arizona State, San Jose State and New Mexico are recruiting me still, but Washington is where I want to be."
