Class of 2004: Marvin Frazier

Havelock (NC) High School Offensive Lineman Marvin Frazier grew up a UNC fan, but the Heels are not showing much interest and other teams are trying to move in.

Could he start looking at other schools?

"I like UNC and NC State far above others, then Auburn, Virginia Tech, Miami, FSU,and Georgia Tech round out my list," the personable Frazier told StateFans. "I don't have any offers at the moment, but I think they will start to come in after the Nike Camp up at Virginia Tech."

It's obvious that the Wolfpack and Tarheels are out front in the recruitment of Frazier, who at 6-foot-3 and 320 pounds, is a solid offensive line prospect.

"Yea, they definitely are," Marvin said. "With UNC, I have grown up a 'Heel all of my life. The fact that I love basketball, added to all the good news that has occured there lately, just makes me want to be in that atmosphere."

"I know that NC State is the premier football program right now, and that interests me a lot. Also, I have a family member that just graduated from there with a masters, and he is really trying to persuade me to think of them more."

Both programs have strong advantages, but according to Frazier only the Wolfpack has been in contact thus far.

"UNC has not written me at all, and I'm surprised," he said. "State has sent letters and attended one of my basketball games. As far as interest, I would have to say that Auburn is showing the most. They have written a lot, and I like that."

Frazier could be an early verbal for one lucky school, as he's looking to enroll mid-year like current Wolfpacker's Mario Williams and "Tank" Tyler did this past January.

"I'm hoping that after a good Nike Camp one of my schools chose to offer because I want to decide soon."

"If I'm able to decide early then I'll try and finish up High School in the Fall Semester so I can enroll in college next January."
