One position that is going to be a top priority for the Southern Methodist University coaching staff appears to be the defensive front.

With graduation of two senior defensive linemen, the Mustangs will have a need for immediate help.

PonyStampede.com recently confirmed with the Navarro College defensive tackle Marquis Frazier that he has indeed received an offer from SMU.

"I went up there to check things out a couple of weeks ago," Frazier said. "It liked a really nice campus. SMU and North Texas have both offered early, I want to stay close to home so I definitely have a lot of interest in the Mustangs."

Frazier got a chance to meet the SMU coaching staff and came away impressed with Coach June Jones.

"SMU is definitely a place I could fit in at," Frazier said. "I liked it a lot. The coaching staff was very easy to talk to."

Frazier, a 6-foot-4, 280-pound athlete that runs a 4.8 forty, started five games for Navarro College last fall. He ended up with 12 tackles and two sacks on the year and is expected to be a key starter for the Bulldogs this upcoming season.

"We had a good season last year, we are working hard to improve on that this fall," Frazier said. "I'm doing really well in the classroom, the last time I checked I had like a 2.76 G.P.A, I'm scheduled to graduate in December."

Frazier played his high school football at Garland High School in the metroplex and hopes to stay close to home.

"That's important to me," Frazier said. "I want my family and friends to be able to see me play."
