As a Recruit
Monroe Freeling has wowed coaches on the football field and on the hardwood. Joe Call, Freeling’s high school football coach at Oceanside Collegiate Academy, raves about his toughness on the field and huge upside. But Freeling is also known to recruiters and college sports fans for his high-flying dunks and blocks on the basketball court -- several of which have gone viral on social media. When he’s not playing football or basketball, Freeling likes to spend time in the weight room or playing video games. He plans on majoring in engineering in college. His favorite food is ramen. His parents are Brandy and Michael Freeling. Freeling has three siblings -- Tristian, Bridger and Grayson.

Like Nate Solder, Monroe Freeling is a tall, big-framed and flexible athlete who has considerable physical upside at offensive tackle. Freeling is a more touted high school prospect and weighs a good bit more than Solder at the same stage. Solder was more of a developmental prospect with more length.
