With a 33 inch vertical and 4.6 speed, Frost has drawn wide ranging interest from several BCS programs. Frost, who is still waiting for his first scholarship offer, is hearing from Louisville, NC State, Maryland, Michigan State, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina and East Carolina.

"I like Louisville a lot actually," Frost said. "They've been recruiting me the hardest out of all the schools. They've been sending me the most mail. I talk to Coach Nord, he's my recruiting coordinator. He said they're looking forward to seeing me up there. They're recruiting me as an athlete but I play quarterback right now. I'm looking forward to coming up there next month for junior day."

"I want to leave the state of South Carolina to play football and Louisville is not too far away," Frost said. "I have followed them recently with Brian Brohm. It seems like a nice place and I've heard a lot about it. So I'm interested to go there and find out more about it myself."

Frost said his teammate, running back G.G. Green, is also being recruited by Louisville and plans to make the trip to Louisville next month with him. Louisville has offered another one of Frost's teammates, four-star DE Chris Bonds.

"My coach seems to think that they could end up offering me and our running back, G.G. Green," Frost said. "They've already offered my other teammate Chris Bonds. I know G.G. is coming with me. I'm not sure about Chris plans. We always talk about going somewhere together."

As a junior, Frost completed 57 percent of his passes for 1,366 yards for 9 touchdowns. He also rushed 97 times for 463 yards and 6 touchdowns. Frost, who probably projects as a wide receiver at the next level, says he'd like to head up north for college.

"Really, I want to go some place up north – Big 10, Big East-type conference," Frost said. "I just like the style of the teams in those two conferences."

Frost said he also interested in North Carolina, East Carolina, NC State and Clemson.

"The biggest (factor) is graduating with a degree. So graduation rates would be number one," Frost said. "You have to get along with the people that are going to coach you for the next four or five years so that would probably be the number two factor."
