Jackson actually recruited Freeman when he was at Dartmouth and made Freeman his first Division I offer.

“Come to find out there was a couple guys on the staff who went to OU and there was a couple of guys who had been around this area so some of them already knew about me, and that helped a lot for it being such a far distance,” Freeman said. “I really lucked out on that one.”

But for Freeman, being away from his brother Josh and his best friend Joel Davis will be the toughest part. Davis and Freeman have been best friends since the first grade, but Davis said Freeman will be buying an iPhone and they will Facetime each night.

“I don't know where I'd be without him today,” Davis said. “He's my accountability partner. We've been getting a lot closer with God. It's just amazing what God has blessed me with to have a best friend like him.”

Now, Freeman is Washington State's blessing.

“I've always been a fan of the underdog programs,” he said. “There's no doubt about it, we're going to have people that are kind of looking at us as underdogs. That's my favorite part about it.”
