Star Junior Quarterback Checks Out Auburn

Shiloh Christian standout Kiehl Frazier talks about his visit to check out Gene Chizik's Tigers.

Springdale, Ark.--Kiehl Frazier, who is expected to be one of the top quarterback prospects in the country for the 2011 signee class, visited Auburn on Saturday and says he enjoyed the opportunity to check out the Southeastern Conference football program.

"The trip gave me a chance to spend time with Coach Chizik and Coach Malzahn and get to know them better," Frazier tells Inside the Auburn Tigers. Gene Chizik is head coach of the Tigers and Gus Malzahn coaches the quarterbacks and directs the offense.

"Auburn is a program that is on the rise," Frazier says. "Coach Chizik's team won eight games in his first year there and I think they are going to continue to improve."

The quarterback has a scholarship offer from Auburn and ones from numerous other colleges, but he is in no hurry to make a college choice. He notes that is something he will likely wait and do when he is a senior.

A player who can beat opposing defenses with his passing ability and running skills, Frazier notes that he currently checks in at 6-3, 215 pounds and is still growing. "I have added an inch in the last month or so and the doctor said I could grow to be six-foot-four or six-foot-five," he says.

After leading Shiloh Christian to a state championship with just one loss along the way back in week three of the regular season, he will have the opportunity to play on another strong team this fall. "We have 17 starters coming back so we should be good again he," he notes.

On his visit to Auburn Frazier says that he got a chance to check out the campus, Jordan-Hare Stadium and get a feel for the city of Auburn. "I know there is a lot of interest in football in the state of Alabama and the football players are treated very well," he says. "I like the city and I enjoyed talking to the Auburn coaches."

Commenting on what else interests him in the Tigers, Frazier says, "I also like Coach Malzahn's offense. It is exciting and everywhere he goes his teams set records."

Frazier notes that athletically he concentrates on one sport. He runs track in the spring to help him with his speed. but his focus is on football throughout the year.

The Shiloh Christian standout says that he plans to visit junior days at Kansas State and Oklahoma State, too.

Academically, he is in good shape for getting ready to attend college in 2011. The quarterback is an honor student with a 3.8 grade point average.
