Lions Take Aim at QB

It made for interesting fodder for the first three months of the recruiting season, as Penn State fans begged the question: Why have the Nittany Lions not offered Zach Frazer or Pat Devlin, a pair of Pennsylvania star passers? The wait appears to be over, as Joe Paterno has offered one of the top quarterback prospects in the country.

According to Chris Frazer, Zach’s mom, her son was offered Monday at spring practice. “Zach was offered,” Chris Frazer said.

Zach Frazer, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound standout from Mechanicsburg (Pa.) High, added offers from North Carolina and Kansas prior to his Easter vacation. Frazer held previous offers from Notre Dame, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Akron and Duke.

In 2004, Frazer was named Associated Press Class AAA Player of the Year, Mid-Penn Keystone Conference MVP and first-team Associated Press AAA All-State. He broke a state record for passing yardage in a season. He completed 285 of 440 passes for 3,684 yards, 27 touchdowns and nine interceptions. He also scored 17 touchdowns on the ground.

Frazer is the first known quarterback in the class of 2006 to receive a written offer from Penn State.

Stay tuned to for more from Zach Frazer on his latest scholarship offer, and the latest news on what other QBs receive offers from the Nittany Lions.
