Oregon HC Mario Cristobal announced that senior RB Royce Freeman will sit out Saturday’s Las Vegas Bowl matchup against Boise State.
The tea leaves had been pointing this way over the past few days. "Am I disappointed in him? No. Do I want to see him play? Absolutely. But I stand by him," Cristobal said. The announcement ends Freeman's prolific collegiate career. He leaves as Oregon's leading all-time rusher with 5,621 yards, which ranks second all-time in Pac-12 history (Charles White) and sixth in FBS history. Freeman's 60 rushing touchdowns are a Pac-12 record. The 5-foot-11, 231-pounder is a versatile, bell-cow big back with receiving chops, slick footwork, plus-vision and great balance. He comes from a wide-open system that left fewer opposing defenders in the box. And since he's unlikely to test in the upper-echelon of RB athletes, evaluators could question whether he can be as effective at the next level, where he won't see the thinned-out boxes he did in college. That narrative may lead to Freeman being available at a discount. He's drawn Day 2 (Rds. 2-3) grades. Dec 14 - 6:42 PM
