Prediction & How He Improves Cougars in 2013:
Out of all the O line class this year, Carlos would be the one I would expect to not get red shirted his first year on campus. With that being said, I hope he does end up getting red shirted.
Freeman is a big man, at 6’3″, 290 lbs, you would expect him to be a bit slower and not fleet on his feet; but that is not the case with Mr. Freeman. Carlos was the number 1 high school heavyweight wrestler in the state of Oklahoma, and you got to think that is where he picks up a lot of his quickness. Out of the guard position, he pulls very well, showing great quickness coming around the edge, blocking anything that’s in his way. He also played a little tackle in high school, and on the edge he showed a great ability to mirror the d lineman’s moves, and once he gets a hold on you, he holds that block till the very end of the play.
I think Freeman’s position of the future is going to be at center, and a future Academic All American center at that. Carlos earned him self a 4.0 gpa and was top 15 in his class. Centers are suppose to be one of the smartest men on the field, and I think he fits that mold perfectly. At any position on the line, Freeman as a very bright future with the Cougs, hopefully being the leader of the most improved line in the country in a couple of years.
