6-6, 270-pound Pelion (S.C.) offensive lineman Dalton Freeman plans to make another round of visits this weekend, as he and his parents will travel to the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech. The Freeman’s plan to visit Charlottesville on Saturday and will follow that up with a trip to Virginia Tech on Monday, Dalton’s father Ben Freeman said yesterday.
Freeman has received 22 official scholarship offers. Some programs have tried to pressure him into a spring/summer decision, something he does not want to do. Ben Freeman, who is also the head football coach for Pelion, continues to be complimentary of the way the Virginia schools have recruited his son.
“They have not put any pressure on him as far as making him decide early,” Freeman said. “Both have stayed in good contact with him. Both are doing a very good job with it. That’s another reason why we’re going to make visits while we’re up that way.”
The Freeman’s may visit two other programs before returning home.
“We may end up going to see Georgia Tech and Georgia maybe in the same trip,” Freeman said. “Those are possibilities, but after that we may be finished up. On July 27th, our football camp stars so we’ll have to start getting ready.”
Coach Freeman expects his son to trim his list to about eight or 10 schools in August. Are there any schools Ben expects to definitely make his son’s first cut?
“He is still pretty open,” Freeman answered. “I know Clemson’s going to be in that group. He still likes them a lot. Other than that, it is probably too early to say. I haven’t really discussed it with him. I’m trying to stay out of it. I haven’t pressured him into talking about it. Plus, he just picked up two more offers (Florida and Florida State) this past week. Offers from the national champions and Florida State gets your attention.”
Dalton Freeman earned all-area, all-region and 2A all-state honors for his junior season performance. He was named region lineman of the year. He plays offensive guard for Pelion and could play guard, center or tackle on the next level.
