Frasor Headed To North Carolina

Wednesday night marked the end of the road for Bobby Frasor. The 2005 guard, who just so happens to have transformed himself into one of the most sought after players of the summer, made his decision.

Sometime Wednesday night, Bobby Frasor, a 6-foot-3 combo guard out of Chicago's Brother Rice High, committed to North Carolina. Frasor had been considering Stanford, Marquette, Michigan State, Wisconsin and a host of others.

"When he visited, there was nothing he didn't like," Brother Rice coach Pat Richardson said. "The campus and the staff, the players and the people in Chapel Hill. It wasn't an easy decision, though."

On Monday, Frasor visited Chapel Hill unofficially with his family. He participated with the Illinois Wolves in the Tournament of Champions where he averaged a cool 30 points.

Ranked No. 23 in the Class of 2005, Frasor shot up the charts after a 9-for-10 effort in an AAU game in Houston during the April period. North Carolina, just one day after the event, moved swiftly and offered him a scholarship.

The biggest reason, from an improvement standout, for Frasor's rapid ascent up the charts has been his stroke. Though not a big scorer in high school where he plays mostly the point, his jump shot which was excellent last season, has proven to be even deadlier through some early summer events.

North Carolina now has two commitments as Frasor joined 6-foot-4 guard Marcus Ginyard. The Tar Heels are thought to be pursuing Tyler Hansbrough and Richard Hendrix, a pair of Top 5 forwards, extremely hard. Both have made official visits and Hansbrough and his family is set to come into town for an unofficial visit June 12-14th.
