Under head coach Blake Anderson, Utah State football has showcased an aggressive nature on the recruiting trail, which prior to Monday had resulted in the Aggies boasting the No. 2-ranked class in the Mountain West Conference.

Monday night, Utah State reeled in yet another commit.

Matt Freeman, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound linebacker/running back from Cedar Hill, Texas, announced via Twitter that he has committed to Utah State.

“Happy to say I’ve committed to Utah State,” Freeman wrote. “I want to thank everyone who’s helped me out with this process and the whole Utah State coaching staff.”

An unrated prospect by both 247 Sports and Rivals, Freeman holds scholarship offers from Bucknell and Utah State and has garnered interest from Harvard, Yale and Ole Miss.

A dual-sport athlete, Freeman also runs track for Trinity Christian and recorded a 11.07 second 100-meter dash as a junior last year.

During the 2020 high school season, Freeman played on both sides of the ball and multiple positions on defense, including defensive end and linebacker. He helped Trinity Christian to an 8-3 overall record.
