Southern Methodist University has a new football coach and apparently there is also a new recruiting philosophy in place as well.
New Head Coach June Jones is known for his great offensive system and is also known to be a great recruiter. It's apparent that he is going to recruit close to home, recruit the state of Texas and the city of Dallas , two talent hotbeds.
"SMU offered me last Thursday," Frazier told PonyStampede.com Sunday afternoon. "I'm very pleased and very happy with the offer. SMU is a great school and they have hired a great football coach."
While Frazier is excited about the possibility of playing close to home, he is hoping that he will have plenty more options before the year is over.
"My mom thinks it's a blessing," Frazier said. "She would love for me to be close to home. Yes, I want to play college football, but more importantly I want a quality education. I can do both at SMU. I think I will get a few more offers before recruiting is over."
Frazier has spent some time researching the Dallas University.
"SMU has a great academic reputation," Frazier said. "You're guaranteed a great job if you graduate from SMU. Yes, I'm a football player, but more importantly I want to be a successful man."
Frazier, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete who runs a 4.7 forty, will be the starting quarterback this fall for his Skyline team. He played wide receiver and tight end last fall. The talented athlete looks forward to being the signal call this year and feels that his skills fits in with what Coach Jones does at SMU.
"I love the offense at SMU," Frazier noted. "I think I would be a good fit at the quarterback position for them. Yes, they throw it a lot, but they also do a lot of sprint outs and things we do at my school. It doesn't matter to me what position I end up playing."
Frazier is sure that he will be attending several camps this summer; one for sure will be at SMU. The standout prospect also participated in the SMU Junior Day and came away impressed with the campus.
"I was very impressed with the campus," Frazier said. "I haven't gotten a chance to meet Coach Jones and the rest of the staff yet, but I'm looking forward to getting to know them.
Frazier helped Skyline to a 12-2 record last fall and to the fourth round of the state playoffs.
