Brownwood, Texas quarterback Kirby Freeman continues to add schools to the list of those recruiting him. But only one school has called during the May contact period.
“Things are picking up,” the 6-foot-3, 190 pound Freeman said. “After this past weekend’s Nike camp, more and more schools are calling the school and talking to my dad.”
Freeman was pleased with his performance in College Station over the weekend, and believes some college coaches were too.
“I think I performed well,” he said. “I worked hard. It was a hot day, but I think I did alright. There were a lot of college coaches there, but we couldn’t talk to them.”
Those coaches are going about other ways to talk to Freeman, and his father who also serves as his coach.
“The coaches are calling my dad and talking to him or swinging by the school and talking to him. He told me Miami called today. And Kansas State was by the school today to talk to him about me.”
So far, only one school has made the call to the Freeman household.
“Purdue is the only school that has called me so far. But a lot of them are still sending me mail. Nebraska is one that has been writing for a while. Texas Tech, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Oklahoma State have all been writing a lot too, or been in touch with my father.”
Freeman is currently holding scholarship offers from Purdue, Texas Tech, Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Oklahoma State.
“I think I opened a lot of schools’ eyes Saturday, so I would imagine more of them will offer me scholarships before too long.”
Freeman had hoped to make a decision before his junior year of school had ended, but that self-imposed deadline has been pushed back.
“I think as more and more schools are coming forward, I owe it to myself to look at what they have to offer me.”
Freeman’s deadline also is tied to his planned early departure from high school.
“I’m going to graduate in December,” Freeman said. “That will cause me to have my decision a little earlier than some. I’m looking forward to having a decision made and then enjoying my final year of high school football.”
Freeman is looking for a school that offers him a chance to see action on the field.
“I just want to play. Wherever that is, it won’t bother me. I also will consider the coaching staff at the school. I want to meet the coaches I will work with, the head coach, the quarterback coach and the offensive coordinator.”
