Frasor on Kansas

Chicago talent Bobby Frasor is hitting the AAU Summer circuit hard and continues to ponder his college decision.

Bobby Frasor is a 2005 class combo guard who made a name for himself on the national recruiting circuit last month after his performances in the Kingwood classic.

"Things got crazy for a while after Kingwood, it's finally beginning to get back to normal," said Frasor.

Frasor went to California this past weekend (5-21/5-23) and visited Stanford.  It was an unusual visit because -- at the time -- the Cardinals were without a head coach.

"It was different with no head coach, but I like the campus and the program.  I heard Trent Johnson (the new coach at Stanford) plans on keeping the same staff which helps."

Other schools pursuing Frasor include Marquette who’s been there since day one along with Kansas, North Carolina, Michigan State, Georgia Tech, and Wisconsin.  Add Arizona to the list of colleges who are interested,  the Wildcats called the Chicago guard on Thursday.  All of the schools serious about landing Frasor have already offered scholarships. 

Frasor plans on killing two birds with one stone this weekend. He'll play in the Bob Gibbons' Tournament of Champions in North Carolina and unofficially visit Chapel Hill at the conclusion of the tourney to see what Roy Williams' Tar Heels have to offer.

KU still has two -- and possibly three -- scholarships available for 2005 players.  Frasor has put some thought into what Kansas is all about.

"Their tradition is impressive.  They have been great for I don't know how long."

KU assistant Tim Jankovich is the point man for the recruitment  of Frasor, who thinks highly in regards to the current state of the program.

"I like Coach Self, and their style of play is appealing to me."

Frasor's dad was a high school coach in the Chicago area for over 30 years which means his son knows the ins and outs of the game.  While he never played for dad in high school, Bob Frasor is an assistant coach on his son's AAU team the Illinois Wolves. 

Bobby shares what he believes he does best on the hardwood.

"I have a great feel for the game being around my dad for my whole life.  I can shoot as well as pass and handle the ball."

When asked where he would like to make the most improvement before taking his game to the next level, Frasor responded without hesitation.

"My strength needs to get better along with my consistency on defense."

Strength and defensive improvements?  Spoken like a true coaches son.
