Frazier's feeling the love

Josh Frazier has already picked up four offers and Scout expects that list to grow rapidly in the coming months.

"I am hearing from so many schools right now, especially schools in the SEC," Josh Frazier told Scout. "Oregon, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, UCLA, and a lot of other schools are sending me mail. Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, and Arkansas State are the schools that have offered me. Auburn is the last one and they offered me in December."

Four offers from Frazier at this time, but he wants more.

"I will be happy with any offer I get, but three offers I really want are LSU, Georgia, and Texas A&M. Those are some of the top schools in the country and all play in the SEC."

If you see a theme here, there is one. It is all about the SEC.

"I love the SEC and I think the teams in there play the best football. It is physical, they win a lot, and I know the competition is great. I really like the schools in the SEC."

One of those schools is Arkansas, a school that is just 10 minutes from Frazier's home. He is very familiar with the school itself, but he is just starting to get to know the new coaching staff.

"I have been to Arkansas numerous times because it is so close to home. I like the new coach [Bret Bielema] so far too. He seems down to earth and very genuine. They have been working on me hard and I know they truly want me there. I want to see how the new staff does this year."

A school the Razorbacks play each year in the SEC West has captured Frazier's attention and they currently lead for the 6-foot-3, 305 pound defensive tackle out of Springdale (Ark.) Har-Ber.

"I went to camp at Alabama last summer and I did well. Coach [Nick] Saban offered me after talking to me about how I did there and how they like me," Frazier said.

"I loved their camp because of the competition. Some of the best players were there, the coaches worked all of us hard, and I loved it. I like their campus, the people, their defense, and how they play too. I love how they strive for perfection there."

The Crimson Tide may lead and he sounded excited about the two-time defending national champs, but Frazier is not going to make an early decision.

"I will definitely be taking my official visits before I commit. I want to see different schools, see how I feel when I am there, and take my time."

Frazier finished the 2012 season with 65 tackles and 3.5 sacks. He is currently the No. 2 defensive tackle in the country on Scout.
