Corey Frazier Makes Minnesota Visit

Corey Frazier, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound defensive back from Eden Prairie (MN) High, made a visit to Minnesota this weekend. Frazier helped lead Eden Prairie to a Class AAAAA state title as a junior and an 11-1 mark this past season. GoldenSports.Net recently caught up with Frazier to learn the latest on his recruitment.

Corey Frazier, the son of Minnesota Viking defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, was named honorable mention St. Paul Pioneer Press All-State and was third-team Minneapolis Star Tribune this season. The Eagles finished 11-1, losing to Blaine in the state semifinals, snapping a 39-game winning streak.

Frazier also plays baseball for the Eagles, which is annually one of the top teams in the state. He plays center field for Eden Prairie. Frazier has high expectations for his baseball team.

"Same thing as always. Same thing as every year. Do good in the playoffs. Try to win state."

Frazier has offers from UTEP and Stanford and has received recruiting interest from Minnesota, Vanderbilt, UCLA, Houston and Maryland.

Frazier previously told Scout.com that some schools are looking at him at different defensive back positions.

"Vanderbilt is looking at me as a corner and UCLA is looking at me as a safety," said Frazier. "I prefer to play safety but either is fine. UTEP and Stanford both offered me as a cornerback so I can do both."

Frazier took an official visit to UTEP in the fall.

"My trip to UTEP was a great trip. El Paso was a lot different than I expected it to be. I really enjoyed my time there. Coach (Osia) Lewis is recruiting me for UTEP."

Frazier has a 3.0 GPA and scored a 25 on the ACT.
