Freeman talks camp and recruiting

Hogansville, Ga. linebacker/defensive end KeShun Freeman was one of nearly 200 prospects who spent Sunday at Marietta High School participating in the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour event and after spending the day working as a linebacker the 6-3, 218-pound prospect took a lot from competing against some of the nation's elite prospects.

"I learned a lot. I saw some things that I need to work on," Freeman said. "I'm going to take this experience and make my senior year even better.

"I need to work on my pass coverage. I did pretty good with it today, but it can get a lot better and I'm going to work on it."

Two weeks ago, Freeman, who has a Vol offer, was in Knoxville to check out Tennessee.

"I really like Tennessee," Freeman offered. "I like the coaches. Coach Jones has really taken the program and is making it good. Coach Jancek really communicates with me. We e-mail each other all the time. He tells me I can call him any time I want. I like the fact that they have a medical program. I want to be an anesthesiologist. So I'm really looking forward to learning more things about them. I was up there a couple of weeks ago for practice. It was very exciting. They move fast and have a great time with it."

In addition to the Vols, Freeman has made trips to Duke, Georgia, and Georgia Tech. In June, Freeman and his family will make their way west to check out Stanford and they will visit Northwestern. He also hopes to see Miami and Boston College. And for Freeman, the recruiting process is something he feels he has a pretty good handle on.

"It's not too overbearing," Freeman offered. "I'm trying to enjoy it. I'm getting interest from a lot of schools. Right now I'm sitting at 12 offers and I'm blessed to have them."

After his work on Sunday in his home state, Freeman's list of 12 offers is likely to grow and regardless of how many offers, Freeman knows what he's looking for in a school.

"I want a place that can really mold me into a better linebacker and a place that is family-like that says I will take your son and make him a better person in four years," Freeman said.

Rivals.com ranks Freeman as a 3-star prospect.
