WKU offer would impact in-state tight end

Among the standout performers at the Western Kentucky camp held at Collins High School in Shelbyville, Ky., last Thursday was Prestonsburg (Ky) tight end Dalton Frasure.

During the camp, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound prospect, who also lines up at full back and defensive end, grabbed the attention of members of the WKU coaching staff, including head coach Jeff Brohm.

"It went great, liked all the coaches real well," he told WKUInsider.com of his experience. "Very well organized camp."

The instant feedback from Brohm was positive and Frasure's performance could result in a scholarship offer from the Hilltoppers.

"He thought I did real well," he said. "Told me he was real impressed. He said he would talk with the staff about things and get back with me."

A recent pledge to Austin Peay, Frasure is quick to admit that a WKU offer would make an impact.

"It would be a great opportunity," he said. "I've always liked Western and Coach Brohm."

As a junior, Frasure racked up some impressive numbers on both sides of the ball. He finished with 1,614 yards - fifth highest in Class 2A last season - and 20 touchdowns, to go along with 13 receptions for 150 yards and two touchdowns. He also registered 33 tackles on defense.

Projected as a tight end on the college level, Frasure will be effective in both the passing and running game.

"I prefer both, I love to catch the ball and also block," he explained. "My team last year ran a spread offense so I saw more blocking out of the backfield the majority of the time.

Frasure continues to see interest rise and has visits planned for Austin Peay, Georgia State, Indiana State and South Florida.
