Keith Frazier, a 6-foot-5, unsigned, five-star shooting guard at Dallas (Texas) Kimball, is one of the most attractive perimeter options remaining in the class of 2013. Last night he was seen at an SMU game and now speculation has begun that he may be leaning towards the Mustangs. Along with SMU, LSU, Texas A&M and Texas look to be the biggest competitors for the lanky jump shooter.
The Mustangs and the Aggies are probably the top 2 on his list right now, and the Mustangs appear to have the upper edge with Frazier’s visit last night. This may be an overreaction, because Frazier is from Dallas so it’s possible he just had a free night and wanted to check a game out. SMU is recruiting Frazier in a positive direction though and would make a great addition to their team. He would be the biggest recruit commitment since Larry Brown took over the program and give the Mustangs a piece to build around in the next 4 years.
Frazier is the rare large guard who is as comfortable lofting a silky 3-pointer as he is attacking the paint and drawing fouls. He does need to work on not turning the ball over in the paint, but that is something that will come with experience and playing time. That would be one of the benefits of going to SMU over a larger program. He also has remarkably good ball handling ability for a 2-guard and Larry Brown would be thrilled to have him at SMU.
