One thing that you can count on when regarding prospects from the Beehive State of Utah and that is there will be a lineman or two with the ability to play D-I football. One of them this year is offensive guard Ryan Freeman (6-4, 280, 5.0) from Orem, Utah.
Freeman earned second-team all-state honors as a junior. His current bench is 310-pounds and squats 510.
The talented lineman from Utah has had a very busy summer attending the NIKE Camp held in Eugene and took part at the ASU, BYU and Notre Dame camps.
So far Freeman has offers on the table from BYU, Utah, Arizona State, and Purdue.
Orem coach Robert Steele thinks but he's not 100% sure that the Oregon Ducks have also offered his star athlete.
Notre Dame, Cal and Stanford are also showing interest in Freeman.
"Ryan has really active feet," Steele said. "He really gets down field to make a second block."
"Ryan is a very hard worker and is very unassuming," Steele said. "He gets the job done."
"Ryan doesn't care about accolades," Steele said. "He just loves the game. Plus it gives him an opportunity to hit people."
BYU may have the advantage for Freeman's services because he's a member of the LDS faith and will more than likely go on a mission.
This young comes from excellent football pedigree. His Eric Freeman is already home from his mission and will play for BYU this fall. Another brother Mark is currently on a mission in Brazil and is expected to play for the BYU Cougars when he returns.
