The latest on four-star Freeman

Adding ten pounds in the last three months, 6-foot-1, 210-pound Edwin Freeman has made the move from safety to linebacker for Arlington (Tx) Bowie this season, helping lead the Vols to a 8-1 record (that includes an upset win over the nation's then third-ranked Dallas Skyline in week three) and into the District 3-5A championship Thursday. With ten-plus offers, he also carries a top three.

Profile: Edwin Freeman, 2014

With ten-plus scholarship offers from major college football programs, Freeman reports his top three are "Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and probably Texas."

"Texas A&M was my first offer," he explained, "and they show that they're very interested in me. They call me and write me, ask me about the games, school, and everything. Just keep in touch… Oklahoma is a great football team. Their coaching staff has been calling me a lot, too. I need to get up there, though… and Texas, it's pretty exciting to get an offer from Texas."

Freeman was in attendance for Oklahoma and Texas' Red River Shootout Oct. 13 in Dallas, but has not yet visited the campuses of either. Regardless, he said of the matchup, "It was amazing. I got to hang out on the Oklahoma sideline before the game, watch warm-ups. It was cool."

Freeman has hung on the Aggies' sideline, as well, on his trip to College Station for A&M's showdown with LSU. "It was crazy," he said of the atmosphere. "The fans, the stadium, everything. I loved it."

With a top two, the 2014 prospect notes he wants to "wait until senior year" to make a commitment decision.

In the end, "I'm looking for a great coaching staff that takes care of their players, tradition, and academics, of course. That's big for me." (carries a 3.1 GPA)

He and Bowie will face crosstown rival Arlington Martin Thursday for the tie-breaking top spot in the district. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. CT at Arlington's Wilemon Field.
