Bluechip Quarterback Commits to Auburn

One of the nation's top-ranked quarterback prospects says he will sign with Auburn.

Springdale, Ark.--Kiehl Frazier, Auburn's top quarterback target for the 2011 signee class, told Inside the Auburn Tigers on Saturday that he has verbally committed to play for Coach Gene Chizik's Auburn Tigers.

"It's a great day for me," Frazier said. "Finally, my recruiting process is over with and I am going to Auburn University."

Frazier said he had good feeling about Auburn prior to Saturday. "The family atmosphere and the coaches kind of reinforced that. It is a great place to be and the program is on the rise. Everything is about Auburn right now."

Frazier says he made the decision while attending Auburn's Big Cat Weekend, which featured recruits from a variety of high school schools from across the southeast.

A 6-3, 215-pounder who will be a senior this fall, he led Shiloh Christian to a state championship as a junior putting up impressive numbers along the way. Frazier passed for 3,817 yards and 48 touchdowns and rushed for 14 more touchdowns and 764 yards.

His trip to Big Cat Weekend was his third unofficial visit to Auburn this year.

Frazier, who is an honor student, is familiar with Auburn offensive coordinator and quarterback Gus Malzahn, who was head coach at Shiloh Christian from 1996-2000 before becoming head coach at Springdale, Ark., High from 2001-2006.

Frazier, who is ranked as the No. 4 quarterback prospect in country, is likely to be the only QB the Tigers sign in 2011. He chose Auburn over Arkansas, Notre Dame and numerous other offers. He literally had scholarship offers from coast to coast from UCLA on the west coast to Miami on the east coast.
