Seminole State College baseball player Xavier Freeman has recently signed his letter of intent to play his final two season of eligibility at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. The Cougars play in the Colonial Athletic Association, and are currently 21-14-1 on the year.

Freeman, a sophomore, has been leading the offensive juggernaut for the Trojans all season. SSC currently leads all of NJCAA in home runs (107), total bases (973), and slugging percentage (.751), while they remain 2nd in RBIs (445), and runs (482). Freeman himself is currently 2nd nationally in home runs with 24, and 8th nationally in RBIs with 67 runs batted in this season. "X" also has a batting average of .410, an on-base percentage of .521, and a slugging percentage of 1.037.

When asked about his last two season at SSC and his future in the Division 1 ranks, Freeman had these words: "Well I guess I could start with saying that I have to give God all the glory. Coming out of Seminole High School, where I wasn't recruited at all pushed me to be noticed. I worked everyday to become great and get to the point where I am today. My mom pushed me to be great in the classroom, where my dad pushed me in the weight room to get stronger. I have truly enjoyed playing at SSC for a legendary coach like "Z." Thanks to the coaches here, I have grown into a man and they really helped me realize that I can be pushed beyond any level I could imagine. Going D1 has been a dream of mine since I was young, and now that I have that opportunity, I am excited to see what Charleston has in store, and am ready to be an even better player when I get there. I wouldn't be here without God, my family, my friends, and my coaches pushing me day in and day out."
