Another new Husky

Those wondering when the Huskies would get another commit for the Class of 2008 apparently got your wish tonight as David Freeman, a running back from Inglewood, Calif., has reportedly cast his lot with UW.
The commitment was reported by RealDawg.com and Dawgman.com.
Freeman is listed at 5-7.5, 178 pounds (here’s a profile from Scout.com) and will unquestionably play running back at UW, according to his coach Charles Mincy — the same Charles Mincy who lettered at UW as a cornerback in 1989 and 1990.
“He’s a great player,” Mincy said in a phone interview tonight. “He will definitely fit in at Washington. He’s a really explosive player. He had a couple of plays over 80 yards last year. He could pretty much take it to the house at any time and he runs tough. He runs really hard and drags people for extra yardage, but then he also runs around people and embarasses them. I think he’s going to do really well.”
Mincy said Freeman has the ability to play defensive back but that “for a team to have him and not give him the ball would be limiting themselves.”
Mincy said Freeman has a GPA in the 3.0 range and was also being recruited by Stanford, Oregon State and Arizona State, among others.
“He’s a good kid and he’s really talented and smart and he picks up on stuff really well,” Mincy said.
Freeman becomes the sixth solid commit for UW for the Class of 2008.
Mincy, by the way, will be going into his third season as the coach at Inglewood where he is assisted by another former Husky of that era, Donald Jones.
Mincy said the two took over a 0-10 team that has gone 3-7 and 7-3 in the two seasons since they arrived.
Mincy, who played in the NFL from 1991-99, said he dabbled in real estate and a few other jobs before deciding he wanted to get into coaching.
“This is something I want to do,” he said. “I probably want to stay at the college level if I went any higher. But I like high school. I feel like I can do a lot for them.”
