Coach June Jones and crew have not been afraid to recruit and offer the best players in the country. In the 2010 recruiting class, Jones offered quarterbacks Jesse Scroggins and Scotty Young. Both are ranked in the Top 15. While SMU now has it's quarterback in the 2010 recruiting class, they can start to focus on 2011. One player they will definitely keep their eye on is Shiloh Christian's (Arkansas) Kiehl Frazier. Frazier is the teammate of 2011 SMU defensive tackle offeree Samuel Harvill.
A very gifted athlete, Frazier is 6'3 and weighs 210 pounds. He runs a 4.5 forty and is not afraid to try to get in the open field. Last season, he threw for 1,437 passing yards and 17 touchdowns. He also ran for 990 yards and 15 scores.
"I would say that I'm a Donovan McNabb type of quarterback. I like to pass it a little bit and run a little bit," stated Frazier to PonyStampede.com. "I would say that I would rather throw a touchdown pass then take off for a run. Throwing takes a little more skill and touch."
Schools have already started taking notice of the 2011 prospect. He currently holds offers from Arkansas, Auburn,Western Michigan, and Tulsa. His father reported last week that Frazier is only considering 20 schools, and will likely not talk to anyone not on his list.
"Coach Jones did some impressive things at Hawaii. It would be exciting playing in his run and gun type of offense. I know the SMU fans really are liking him there," said Frazier. "Coach Jones has only been there one year, so I'm expecting some big things down there soon. By the time that I would hit campus, the team will be doing pretty good."
A winner this summer of the Arkansas Topgun quarterback challenge, Frazier's Shiloh Christian's Saints are regarded to have one of the best offenses in the nation.
"It's a privilege for me. We have a lot of greats players around the program and the coaching staff is really good. They know what they are doing. It's great for me, because as a quarterback I don't have to do much. I just have to get it to the play makers."
This weekend, he is slated to attend the Georgia/Oklahoma St. game. Week three, he will be checking Arkansas take on Georgia. After that, the 2011 future star is wide open.
"If SMU invited me to a game, I would definitely be open to it and would look forward to checking it out," said Frazier. "I want to go to a place where I can develop and become a better quarterback. I want a place where I can come in and compete for a spot. I'm probably not going to go to a place that is far away. I don't want to go to a place like California. I want to be close to home."
Frazier and Harvill are both looking for a place they can call home together. Currently, the junior has a 3.8 GPA.
