Frasor Piling Up Offers

Bobby Frasor's numbers don't really do his justice. The Brother Rice (Ill.) junior guard only averages 13 points per game, but that hasn't stopped him from fielding plenty of offers.

Bobby Frasor's numbers are far from eye-popping. He's putting up about 13 points, 7 assists and 6 boards per game.

But that hasn't stopped the big boys from offering the 6-3, 180-pound junior combo guard. Recently, Stanford and Notre Dame put forth scholarship offers. The Cardinal and Irish joined Marquette and DePaul.

You can basically throw Frasor's stats out the window. The kid is a winner. Plain and simple.

His Illinois Wolves 16-and-under team won plenty last summer and his high school team, Brother Rice, finished the regular-season with a 24-1 mark.

``My team doesn't need me to score 20 even though I think I'm capable of that," said Frasor, who did put up 20 in the regular-season finale, a 62-44 win over St. Patrick. "This has all been a major surprise to me. I never expected to have a chance to go to schools like Notre Dame, Stanford or Marquette."

Frasor isn't worried about playing time when he makes his decision. He is confident enough in his abilities that he'll earn it wherever he winds up. It's going to come down to how comfortable he is with the coach and the players.

His father, Bob, played at Wisconsin in the early 1970s, but Frasor said there's been no pressure to head to Madison.

``He's totally laying off and letting me make my own decision," Frasor said.

Frasor has already been to Marquette, Notre Dame and Wisconsin for unofficial visits and would like to get to Stanford. N.C. State, Wisconsin, Georgia Tech and Northwestern are also in the mix.

Frasor plays the point in high school and plays off the ball in the summer with the Illinois Wolves, where Bryan Mullins runs the show.

``Stanford is recruiting me as a point, while Notre Dame said I could play either," Frasor said. "To tell you the truth, I like having the ball in my hands and getting my teammates involved."

Frasor missed three games earlier this season when he tore a ligament in his foot and it was no coincidence that his team's lone loss came when he was out of the lineup.

DT'S Scout's Take – One of the more talented shooters in the Class of 2005. Might end up developing into a combo guard. One of those guys with some intangibles. His 2003 summer run included a few gutsy efforts.
