Grandview, Mo., quarterback Josh Freeman would be considered by most to be all set wit his verbal commitment solid and in the books to Nebraska, being ranked as one of the top players in the country, and preparing to graduate early to get in on spring ball.
Freeman is unsatisfied.
The four-star rated Rivals100 signal caller Freeman actually wants to work even harder now considering just how much better he wants to get before Division I competition. Working off of a 68 percent pass completion so far, his first few games have his stats shooting through the roof all to prove to people that he wants to be even better.

"I'm up to about 911 yards and 12 touchdowns on the year with four interceptions," Freeman said. "It's the same receiving core this year, but they're starting to find the holes and their real smart. My arm has gotten a lot stronger because of arm workouts."
So Freeman is just looking to pad stats. Actually, the 6-foot-6, 231-pound prospect just wants to win ball games, but also wants to be noticed at the same time.
"The goal is to win football games," Freeman said. "I just go out and play. It's not about stats. I mean the most we passed this season is 27 times in a game. So, I don't rely on that, but when I perform well, I'm excited about it."
Regardless of making a summertime commitment to Nebraska, schools have not stopped coming after him.
"Oklahoma has made calls to the house, but I haven't returned them," Freeman said. "I don't really talk to any coaches seriously outside of Nebraska."
Freeman says he's also being known as a recruiter for the Huskers through his first couple of games and trips up there. He just says he's being himself and telling other players why that particular school fits him.
One thing he is very excited about is getting to his future college home early to participate in spring ball.
"It's going to be awesome to get up there and get a jump on the offense," he said. "I can get situated before spring ball and continue to come along physically. I'm surprising myself this year, and I think that will continue if I'm at Nebraska before a lot of other players."
