CAREER SUMMARY: Freeman has seen action in 18 games and blocked for two 1,000-yard rushers and two seasons with a 3,000-yard passer.

2010: He appeared in 11 games for the Razorbacks, missing only the Texas A&M and Auburn contests. He was part of a line that allowed Arkansas to break 24 game or season school records on offense and contributed to the first season in UA history with a 3,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard rusher. Quarterback Ryan Mallett set the Arkansas single-season passing yards record with 3,869 and running back Knile Davis posted the fourth-highest single-season rushing yards total in program history with 1,322 yards. The Razorbacks were the only team in the country to boast a 3,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher and five 600-yard receivers. Arkansas finished the season first in the SEC and fourth in the NCAA in passing (333.7), becoming just the third team since 1992 to lead the conference in passing in consecutive seasons. The Razorbacks also ranked second in the SEC and ninth in the country in total offense (482.5) and second in the conference and 17th in the NCAA in scoring offense (36.5).

2009: Freeman played in four games and started two for Arkansas in 2009. He had starts against Ole Miss and Eastern Michigan. He was a member of the offensive line that blocked for an offense that led the SEC in scoring offense (36.0) and pass offense (295.5) and ranked third in total offense (427.3). Arkansas was nationally ranked in passing offense (10th), total offense (20th), scoring offense (ninth) and passing efficiency (11th). Arkansas' offensive line did not allow a sack against Missouri State, Eastern Michigan and East Carolina and only allowed one sack in the Mississippi State game. He blocked for seven 100-yard games from the Arkansas receivers and three 100-yard games from the Razorback running backs.

2008: He earned his first letter after getting snaps with the offense in games against Alabama, Florida and Ole Miss, splitting time with Michael Aguirre. He helped Michael Smith become the ninth 1,000-yard rusher in school history and finish the year second in the SEC and No. 22 in the nation with 207 carries for 1,072 yards and eight touchdowns. He also helped protect Casey Dick, who completed 205 passes, and threw for 2,586 yards and 13 touchdowns. The completion total was a school record, the yardage total ranked second and the TDs tied for eighth. Arkansas' 3,115 yards passing was a school record and the 4,477 yards of total offense ranked ninth.

2007: He redshirted while working with the scout team and transitioning from his high school position of tight end to tackle. He began the 2007 season at 250 pounds but bulked up to 277.

HIGH SCHOOL: Freeman was a member of the AP Arkansas Super Team at tight end and defensive end for coach John Vitale at Paris. He had 472 yards receiving with nine touchdowns. He also recorded nine pancake blocks, three champion blocks and a pair of deuce blocks. On defense, he had 49 tackles, six sacks and 10 hurries. As a junior, he had 12 receptions for 210 yards and four touchdowns. As a sophomore, he had six catches for 63 yards and two scores in a run-oriented offense. Rivals listed him as the No. 14 tight end in the nation and as the No. 5 prospect in the state. HawgSports.com named him to its Natural 21 list at No. 6. Scout.com listed him as the No. 19 tight end in the nation and No. 5 prospect in Arkansas. Both Scout and Rivals.com listed him as a four-star recruit. Hawgs Illustrated ranked him the No. 6 prospect in the state.

PERSONAL: Born Oct. 18, 1988, he is the son of Grace Walker. He is majoring in agricultural science. He was named to the SEC's 2007-08 Freshman Academic Honor Roll and to Arkansas' Lon Farrell Academic Honor Roll for Fall 2007. He was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll in the fall of 2010.
