HAYWARD, Calif. -- 2016 four-star forward Oscar Frayer had a banner night on Saturday against Kentfield (Calif.) Marin Catholic, scoring a game-high 25 points on 12-of-16 shooting, pulling down a game-high 11 boards (more than twice as many as the most prolific Wildcats rebounder), adding an assist, two blocks and two steals in 17:31 of floor time.

Frayer, Milstead and Armond Simmons keyed a 12-0 run in the middle of the first quarter to set the stage for a 77-61 win, and Frayer's performance in Saturday's game gave a little clarity as to which position the 6-foot-5, 175-pounder will play at the next level.

Clearly, Frayer's shooting touch from just about anywhere inside the three-point arc is his best weapon, and he shows remarkable body control for someone who's still growing.

While Frayer appeared a bit tentative on defense playing the four, he shows flashes of aggression on the defensive glass. At the 8-second mark in the above video, we see Frayer called for goaltending, but his ability to run the floor and leap are clearly tools he can build on.

At the 11-second mark, we see for the first time Frayer's stellar chemistry with freshman point Damari Milstead, and you're going to see a lot more of that throughout the video, as the very next play on our reel shows a steal and a give-and-go with Milstead that ends in an alley-oop.

Bottom line, it looks at least from this game that Frayer is more of a three than a four, as his best weapon is clearly his shooting stroke. That said, if he gets bigger – and all indications are that he will – he could turn into a very dangerous four with plus shooting touch and good length.
