Lee County's Jesse Freeman has committed to the University of Louisiana-Lafayette on a football scholarship.

Freeman, an offensive tackle, made his decision on Thursday. He has been an anchor on the line for Head Coach Dean Fabrizio and quarterback Stephen Collier at Lee County. The Trojans scored over thirty points in all of their games except for one in 2012.

Freeman heads to a program on the rise at Louisiana-Lafayette. Mark Hudspeth's team has won nine games in each of the last two years, capping each season off with a win in the New Orleans Bowl.

Freeman acknowledged that he might have to switch to offensive guard at the next level. Regardless, he is excited about the opportunity to play Division-1 football. Hudspeth recruited Freeman himself.

"I just liked the experience. I liked the coaching staff and I liked the way it made me feel," Freeman said of his recruitment. "It gave me a very good vibe."
