Frazier still hearing from Huskers

A man among boys. Child's play. Whatever you want to call it, name your cliché, Marquis Frazier is the real deal. He thinks that his days of college football will be spent at linebacker. That's probably not likely. Frazier looks to have the frame to play the end position at about 285, easily.

Marquis Frazier is just like the flower ready to blossom. He is budding into the potential that few have at any level. The 6-foot-3 and 250 pound defensive end from Garland (Texas) has been working out hard despite a chiseled physique.

"I am just working out right now," Frazier said. "I am really working on my speed. I am still pretty fast, but I am still trying to work on it though."

The speed aspect is something people might think that Frazier shouldn't be concerned with. He has great speed and quickness coming off of the edge, but he believes that his days are numbered coming from his end position.

"See, I think that college teams are looking to move me to linebacker. I am about 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds. I am thinking that people want me to play MIKE. My speed is still 4.6"

The evaluation period is really the first time that some players get a chance to see how recruiting might be like. Frazier was pleased with how things went with the evaluation period.

"I think that the evaluation process went well. I felt really good about it. There were a lot of teams that came to look at me. Like Texas, Texas A&M, LSU and a whole bunch more."

The offers are something that Frazier just hasn't tracked by quantity a whole lot, but he has been keeping tabs out of teams in the Big 12 who have offered and, more importantly, who hasn't. "I have 9 or 10 offers. I have offers from everyone in the Big 12, but Texas and Oklahoma. Oklahoma is still recruiting me hard. The send me stuff. Nebraska has offered."

With around double-digit leaders, Frazier still hasn't given a lot of thought to his favorites, but he has some ideas of what he is looking for to make up that list. "I haven't thought about my leaders at all. I want to go to a good program, get a good education and distance isn't that big of a thing for me."

This summer will mostly be spent working out for Frazier. If he can make it, he would like to take in some camps, but there are no concrete plans yet. "I am going to try and make it to a couple of camps. I am going to try and make it down to Florida. Maybe Iowa or something."

One team that might be in line for a Frazier official is Nebraska. If Frazier plans on taking a look at Nebraska at all it will be on an official visit. "Nebraska is still in good contact with me. I am going to try and take an official to Nebraska this fall. That is what I would like to do."
