HOOPS: After WSU visit, PG to commit today?

A SHIFTY point guard took an official visit to WSU this weekend -- a junior college prospect who told CF.C that his Washington State experience was everything he expected and more. But was it enough for the 6-4, 185-pounder out of Florida to commit before he left town? It was not, but according to his twitter, it sounds like a decision could come at any moment.

Update: The decision is in, and Frazier has chosen Okie State. Here's his visit report as it was reported before his announcement.

Chad Frazier out of Panama City, Fla., late Sunday night told CF.C he would make his decision in about two weeks -- but that changed a few hours later. He tweeted on Monday that he's going to commit today.

But what school is he going to give his verbal?

Frazier said he was surprised how at home he felt on the Palouse. The Gulf Coast Stage College guard arrived on Thursday and left Pullman on Sunday.

"It was a pretty good visit for me" Frazier said. "I had a lot of fun out there and I really liked the small town community.

"I'm still waiting to make a decision, but it was a lot better than I thought it would be."

FRAZIER'S WAZZU EXPERIENCE was highlighted by a trip to Martin Stadium to witness the Cougars heartbreaking 35-34 defeat to Colorado. Heading in, Frazier said one of the things he wanted to see was if the fans had support for their sports programs.

Cougar Nation answered the call.

"Oh they definitely support their teams," Frazier said. "Even though the Cougars lost, the fans were out there until the end and they were supportive. I really enjoyed it, but it was crazy how the game ended."

There was one more highlight that made the trip memorable.

"I met everybody on the team and got to watch them practice," Frazier said. "I got to see how they do things on and off the court an it was cool to see."

Frazier was hosted by Jordan Railey (6-10, 210 pounds) Iowa State transfer whom Frazier called "a big man" several times.

"He was cool and he knew everything about Pullman," Frazier said. "He just got there but he really showed me the ropes and we had a really good time."

FRAZIER TOLD CF.C last week he has trimmed down his of college choices to WSU, Oklahoma State and Northern Arizona. He said late Sunday although he didn't commit this weekend, the trip to Pullman reinforced WSU in his top three.

"I really have no particular order right now, but I need to sit down to and really think about this and make a decision. I want to imagine myself as a student at the college I'm going to attend," said Frazier last night.

Frazier has no other official visits set up. The early signing period runs from Nov. 14-21.

Frazier averaged 15.0 points per game last season as a freshman along with three assists and three rebounds.

Another hoops official visitor this weekend, Torren Jones ended up texting CF.C and said he was having phone issues, saying he'd be better able to talk sometime on Monday. The lone official visitor in football, a player who is already committed, had his original flight turned around on Saturday morning because of the smoke from the fires. He was able to make it to the Palouse eventually and was still on his official visit as of Sunday evening. CF.C will bring you his story once he's left WSU and after we're able to touch base with him.
