Ditto, Auburntron — suit this dude up.

“I talked to Coach Chizik and told him ‘War Damn Eagle!’” Freeman said. “I told him that I was going to sign with Auburn and there wasn’t any doubt about it. I’m so ready to be a part of the Auburn Family. I can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Freeman said his first conversation with Chizik went very well. Freeman believes Auburn found the right guy for the job.

“I know a lot of people say that they don’t like him for the job because of his record at Iowa State and this and that, but I believe in Chizik and I believe in Auburn University!” said Freeman. “I absolutely believe they hired the right guy. Me and Coach Chizik and the rest of the Auburn Family, we are going to get this thing back right.”

Freeman was hardpressed to hold back his excitement about Chizik and signing with Auburn.

“I heard Coach Chizik has coached three Thorpe Award winners, well damn, he better get ready to coach a Dick Butkus Award winner. It’s on now!” Freeman said. “We’re coming back. Me and the boys are coming! I’m ready! WAR DAMN EAGLE! I just can’t wait to be a part of the Auburn Family.”

Auburn has lost eight commitments, one of which it has since gotten back, since Tommy Tuberville’s resignation Dec. 3. More commits have said they are now looking at other schools. Freeman said he had a message for the decommitments and other potential recruits.

“If Auburn can’t get’em, we’ll beat’em…If we can’t get’cha, we’ll beat’cha,” Freeman said.

Merry Christmas to you too, Eltoro. I needed that. War Damn Eagle.

    It’s hard not to like this kid. If we can get Blackmon back too? Pybus? Marks? Powers? The talent and drive is there. All we need is an offense that holds onto the ball and moves it and a solid DC.

    War Eagle!

  4. Also maybe Auburn should invest heavily in a new athletic training staff so that list of defensive menaces can stay on the field all year … or something ANYTHING! to lessen all the injuries.

    they can start by NOT practicing on that intramural field! that thing is lumpy and dangerous and has been the site of NUMEROUS preseason injuries.

    Hell yeah!

    I love all the exclamation points in the quotes. Dude sounds jacked to be coming to Auburn. Just what we need.

    War Damn Eltoro!

    This guy will be an instant fan favorite (well on his way already) if he comes close to walking it like he talks it.
