What's Next For Bobby Frasor?

Brother Rice in Chicago is home to one of America's hottest recruits. No. 23 Bobby Frasor waded through a plethora of interested schools and recently separated the pretenders from the contenders.

For Bobby Frasor, a 6-foot-3 guard out of Brother Rice in the Windy City, April was a busy month. After a big time performance at the Kingwood Classic, Frasor fielded interest from some of America's elite programs.

After the firestorm of letters and calls, the guard was able to get focused and put some perspective on his recruitment. "It's settled down," Frasor said. "I can see which schools are kind of sticking with me now."

And those schools are: Marquette, Stanford, North Carolina, Michigan State, Kansas, Georgia Tech and Wisconsin.

Thus far, Frasor has taken a pair of official visits. His first was to Marquette and last weekend he visited Stanford shortly before the Cardinal named Trent Johnson its head coach.

Frasor did not meet Johnson during his visit to The Farm. "Actually, I called [Stanford] yesterday and that was my first time talking to him. I had a good time and I've never seen a place like that before.

"The way the people carry themselves, they're very mature and have a demeanor about them. It's not like a normal college student. It's appealing because of the opportunities that those kids have after college."

The guard will be in Chapel Hill this weekend for the Tournament of Champions. He'll remain in town the day after the event to take an unofficial visit to North Carolina. The Tar Heels have offered and made it clear they want to be a player in his recruitment.

Frasor alluded to the possibility of making a decision after the UNC trip. At the very least, he'll trim his list. Two schools have little to worry about when it comes time to cut his list.

"I'd say Stanford and Marquette would be safe. I've taken my official visits to both and I liked them. I enjoyed them both."

The next week should tell us the direction in which Frasor wishes to go. He could decide or elect to evaluate his options. "I'm definitely moving [forward in the process]. After visiting North Carolina I may be able to make a decision right then but I might need more time. It'll definitely be over before my high school season."

When asked if he could make a decision today, Frasor was quick with an answer. "No, I don't think so. I'd have to sit down to think about it. It's on your mind but you really don't know the pros and cons."

Frasor opened the summer rankings as the No. 23 prospect overall and No. 4 point guard overall.
