After leading his Dallas Kimball team to a 90-64 victory over Seagoville on Saturday afternoon, five-star shooting guard Keith Frazier made it to SMU for his official visit along with his AAU coach Ervin ‘Big E' Davis and his mother.
"It went good," Davis said. "We already built a relationship with the coaches and so he (Frazier) was real intrigued by all the players on the team and some of the guys they've got sitting out right now that are going to be a part of the team as well."
While on the Hilltop, Frazier toured the academic support facilities and other parts of the campus. On Super Bowl Sunday, Frazier attended a party at SMU assistant coach Jerrance Howard's home with the coaching staff and some of the players.
The next day, Frazier continued to meet with coaches and was able to see the other players on the roster practice and realized it would not be a one man show if were to play at the Hilltop.
"Coach Brown just let Keith know that he can be a real big part of what they've got going on here and he can contribute right away," Davis said. "But he doesn't have to come in and be the savior because they've got other good players too."
Even with SMU's struggles, Frazier understands that the Mustangs have some bright days ahead of them.
"I think Coach Brown just reaffirmed to Keith that if he comes here, they can win right away," Davis said.
Frazier has visited Texas and will also visit Texas A&M and Texas Tech and a decision will be made soon after.
"I wouldn't say it's just between Texas and SMU," he said. "I do think that he definitely got a positive outlook on SMU though. His mother was able to find out a lot about SMU as well."
Frazier is looking at the whole picture during his recruitment and not just focusing on one aspect. Davis says the five-star shooting guard is trying to find the best fit amongst the schools he is considering.
"He's just looking at them so he can have something to compare and contrast players, coaches and coaching staffs," Davis said. "I do know that when he went to SMU, he didn't go with a whole lot of questions.
"He feels like he has a good relationship with the coaches and the players and with every coach, not just Coach (Ulric) Maligi, who has been recruiting him, but he feels good about Coach (Eric) Snow, Coach (George) Lynch and Coach (Tim) Jankovich and everybody on the staff."
