ESPN 100 SG Keith Frazier likes eight
By Reggie Rankin
Senior shooting guard Keith Frazier (Dallas/Kimball), the No. 19 overall player in the ESPN 100, is one of the best shooters/scorers in the country regardless of class.
Right now Frazier likes Providence, Florida, Texas, Texas A&M, LSU, Arizona, SMU and Memphis. Frazier will likely commit in April, which will allow him to get a better feel for programs, coaches and players. Without a doubt he will be a prime target for many elite programs.
ESPN 100 SG Keith Frazier will make his college announcement on March 28 between Texas A&M, SMU, Texas Tech and Auburn.
"I am looking for a school where I can instantly play big-time minutes, the coach is loyal and with me when I do something good or bad, and someone that can help me get to the next level. Make me a pro," Frazier said.
Frazier played on the travel circuit with DJH5 and Houston Hoops. At 6-foot-5 and about 190 pounds, he is the type of guard who can get hot from deep. He spots up on the break, comes off screens and spaces to the open area on the side of dribble penetration. He shoots over smaller defenders with ease and has continued to improve at making plays off the bounce as well.
Frazier is a true shooting guard and fun to watch when he gets in a groove. Against man or zone, the defense better know where Frazier is at all times.
"I am a pretty good scorer, but I have to work on my on-ball defense," Frazier said. "But it is getting better."
Frazier has taken a few unofficial visits, but no officials or any in-home visits yet. He has been preparing to take the SAT on Oct. 27 and said school is going extremely well and that his favorite class is pre-calculus right now. "I have really started to like math," Frazier said.
Frazier has a special offensive skill in his ability to shoot, and this skill is at the top of coaches' lists when discussing prospects in a recruiting meeting. No doubt Frazier is at the top of many shooting guard lists that are on the board in many coaching staff conference rooms.
