Frazer Starting to Visit Schools

Mechanicsburg, Pa. quarterback Zach Frazer is starting to take some time to visit some of his top schools. The 6-4, 210-pound Frazer has already taken one unofficial visit for a junior day. Will Frazer be visiting Notre Dame any time soon?

Quarterback Zach Frazer has already logged his first official offer.

"I have an offer from Georgia Tech," Frazer said. "Notre Dame, Michigan, Penn State, Virginia, West Virginia, Nebraska, Iowa, Ohio State and Purdue are the teams that are recruiting me the most right now."

The talented signal caller has already visited one school for junior day, and he says he plans to visit a few more in the future.

"I went to Penn State already for junior day," he said. "I'm going to Notre Dame's junior day on the 27th. I also think I might head to Purdue for their junior day. I haven't set that up yet though."

When we last spoke to Frazer at the Army combine he indicated he might attend some camps. We asked Frazer if he knew which camps he planned to attend at this point.

"We haven't finalized that yet," Frazer said. "I know I'm going to Notre Dame's one-day camp. I'm not sure on the rest yet. I'll probably just try to hit some one-day camps. I'm also planning on going to the Penn State Nike camp, and I think I might go to the one down in Miami if I can."

Frazer says he's really looking forward to Notre Dame's junior day.

"I really haven't spoken to them yet," said Frazer. "This will be my real first one-on-one with them. I'm really looking forward to meeting coach Weis and his coaching staff. I want to learn more about them. Charlie Weis has obviously had a lot of success at the NFL level so I'm looking forward to hearing what they plan to do at Notre Dame."

We asked Frazer which school he grew up cheering for as a youth.

"I was a Penn State fan when I was younger," Frazer said. "My mom teaches there for nursing. As I got older, I didn't really have a favorite team; I more cheered for certain players and followed their careers."

Like most top quarterbacks, Frazer says he plans to make an early decision—most likely this summer.

"I want to make an early decision," he said. "I think it will relieve the pressure of all of this. It will allow me to relax my senior year. I'll probably decide before my season."

There are a lot of good quarterbacks in this class so we asked Frazer what he felt makes him a great quarterback.

"We played a lot of close game this year," he said. "We were down 16-0 early in our semifinal game, and we came back and won the game. I think my composure is probably my best attribute. I'm relaxed and remain calm when my team needs me. I don't get rattled on fourth down, and I make good decisions. I also think I'm good in the pocket and I have good size and arm strength."

Comments: The Irish appear to be making an early impression on Frazer. He seems to have real interest in Notre Dame at this point. We'll check back with Zach after his unofficial visit to get his reaction to his visit to South Bend.
