Frayer looking at options

Oscar Frayer is one of the top players in the west in 2016. Read on for his thoughts on his recruitment and more.

One of the top players in California is the 2016 class is 6-foot-5, 175-pound Hayward Moreau Catholic forward Oscar Frayer.

Frayer is running with the Oakland Soldiers in the EYBL and is hoping to display his full ability in order to get the offers rolling in.

"I want to show how much heart I have," Frayer said. "I play with a lot of intensity and have a lot of defensive ability and I want to show coaches that. If I can lock somebody up, that's what I want to do."

The small forward has made major steps in his game since last season and is quick to point to what he has improved on.

"Last year my dribbling was terrible," Frayer said. "I worked on it all summer and then worked on it in high school and it has come a long way."

There is a good chance that Frayer's recruitment is going to pick up, but he is already hearing from numerous schools in the Pac-12.

"Recruiting is going well," Frayer said. "I have not talked to the new coaches at Cal yet, but I am sure I will. I talk with Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA, and USC. Cal is my only offer right now, but that was the last staff."

Frayer acknowledges that there are a handful of Oakland Soldier players that have gone on to Arizona, but says that will not play a role in his recruitment.

"I feel like I make my own choices and decisions," he said. "I have talked to some former Soldiers that play for Arizona, but I don't think that will affect my decision too much."

When looking at each school recruiting him, Frayer is not completely sure of what he will focus on. However, he does know one factor that will be of interest."

"It's hard to explain what I want," Frayer said. "I do know I want a team that gets up and down the floor, because I feel that is my style of basketball."

What else does Frayer bring?

"I play above the rim, high intensity, very good defensive player, get the ball to my teammates, and I am a distributor," Frayer said. "In high school I am more of a scorer and with the Soldiers I know I have more of a role, which is to defend and do a little bit of everything."
