Bluechip Prospect Recruiting for the Tigers

After a memorable senior season in leading Shiloh Christian to the state football title, Auburn verbal commitment Kiehl Frazier is turning his attention to his future team.

Springdale, Ark.--Kiehl Frazier is modest when asked to talk about his seven touchdowns and third straight state championship football game Most Valuable Award, but the quarterback is happy to discuss how pleased he is that Shiloh Christian finished the 2010 season as a state champion.

The Auburn verbal commitment passed for 319 yards and four touchdowns and ran for three more scores as his team defeated Pulaski Academy 61-40 in the championship game.

Asked how he thought he played in the state title game, Frazier said, "It was a really good way to finish. To go out with my fellow seniors as a state champion, it is really awesome."

Asked again how he personally performed in his final game for his high school team after he won the MVP honor again, Frazier said, "I think I played pretty well. Knowing it was the final game for all of the seniors is what really stood out to me because of how much heart everybody put into the game. A bunch of them will never play football again and that is why I am so excited for those guys."

Auburn offensive coordinator and quarterback Gus Malzahn, the former head coach at Shiloh Christian, was back at his old school to watch Frazier play in the title game. This past weekend Frazier and his father made the drive from Springdale, Ark., to Auburn to spend time with Malzahn, watch him coach practice, and help recruit some future teammates for the quarterback who is ranked No. 4 nationally at his position by Scout.com.

"There were a bunch of big-time players taking visits and it was fun talking to the players including a few I hadn't met before like Christian Westerman," Frazier said of the five-star offensive lineman from Arizona. "I told him if you want to protect me I am good with it."

With almost every Auburn football game available to watch on TV in Arkansas, Frazier has been able to watch the Tigers frequently as they have posted a 13-0 record heading into the BCS National Championship Game on Jan. 10th vs. Oregon.

"It has been fun," Frazier said of Auburn's 2010 season. "Since I live in Arkansas, every week we will be talking trash and I will say, ‘Hey, we won again.' It's been fun."

Kiehl Frazier is a good runner in addition to an outstanding passer.

Commenting on how he feels about his commitment to Auburn after spending the weekend on campus, Frazier said, "When I first made the decision I wasn't even as comfortable with it as I am now. Coming down to Auburn more and more makes the decision more comfortable."

Frazier is scheduled to sign with Auburn in February and he said he will come to the AU campus this summer for workouts as soon as he graduates from high school. He plans to do football strength and conditioning work over the winner and he said that he will probably run track for Shiloh Christian in the spring before graduating and heading off to college.
