Texas Point Guard Picks PSU

Nittany Lions secure a verbal from Tim Frazier of Strake Jesuit High in Houston.

With Stanley Pringle set to graduate following this season, Penn State will be left with only one scholarship point guard on the roster.

And while that point guard is a good one — sophomore Talor Battle — the position was clearly an area of need for Ed DeChellis and his staff this recruiting season.

But it is not anymore.

A few minutes ago, point guard Tim Frazier of Strake Jesuit High in Houston told us he committed to Penn State.

"Yes sir, I committed to Penn State," he said.

Since he was in school, he did not have time for an interview. But he did talk to Scout.com's Evan Daniels.

"I decided to be a Nittany Lion because I felt it was a great fit for me," Frazier said. "Penn State has great academics as well as a great basketball team and that's what I was looking for.

"The coaches were great and were really persistent in their recruiting and living up to what they said," he continued. "I had a great time on my official visit and my parents and coaches were all for so it there was no question that Penn State was the right place for me."

Frazier is a 6-foot-1, 160-pounder who is said to remind many in the Penn State camp of former Lion guard Danny Earl.

Here is a YouTube video of Frazier. He is No. 23.
