Royce Freeman claims no favorites but the Imperial, Calif. Four-star running back took only one unofficial visit so far this summer - to Oregon last week - so the Ducks have to be considered one of the leaders in his recruitment.
The 6-foot, 210-pound prospect said he had an enjoyable time in Eugene but Freeman said he doesn't want to list any frontrunners and he really doesn't have a firm timetable as to when he's going to make a decision.
Oregon was a great visit, though, and really gives Freeman something to seriously consider.

"I'm pretty serious about them after that visit," Freeman said. "I got there and I went with my family and I brought a teammate along with me.
"We got a tour of the campus, the football facilities and everything else that's up there. It was great all around. The weather was nice, the people were great and the facilities are really state of the art.
"They weren't really pushing me for a commitment. They were just giving me facts about Oregon. I told them I was going to go home and ingest it all in. I just need to talk with my family about what we saw and process it for myself."
In May, Freeman said UCLA, Oregon and Florida were three schools that piqued his interest but his recruitment has picked up even more since then with offers from Alabama, USC and others so the four-star is taking his time with leaders.
If there are certain programs that stand out more than others, Freeman isn't saying. No other trips are planned yet for this summer so even if he's not hinting at top schools, Oregon has to like its chances after he visited there last week.
"I'm just handling it day-by-day," Freeman said. "They're all great schools and you can't go wrong with any of them. I'm just processing it right now and I don't have any favorites. When I make the commitment that will obviously be the favorite. I'm not ranking them or anything.
"I don't have a timetable for anything."
