It is not like Bobby Frasor was not a high-major recruit prior to the Kingwood Classic. In fact, he had a visit scheduled to Marquette for this weekend and one to Stanford later in May. Notre Dame, Georgia Tech and Wisconsin had offered him too.
The guard out of Brother Rice in Chicago did not exactly come out of nowhere ala Von Wafer at the same event a year ago. He did, however, raise his stock to a completely new level.
Frasor's defining moment came against Team Texas when he did not miss a shot (see chart) until four minutes, 37 seconds remained in the game. He would go onto finish 9-for-10 from the field and 5-for-6 from beyond the 3-point arc. In overtime, he made the game-winning shot.
"After the Texas game, there were about four or five media there," Frasor said. "I took pictures and we were sitting down. I called my dad and while I was talking to him, my head coach's cell phone was ringing. It was crazy. Just to win the game was awesome and then to hit the game-winner …"
That shot began an onslaught of telephone calls which led to offers. North Carolina called and offered. They are coming to see him on Thursday.
"Michigan State called," Frasor said. "They called a while ago when [Eric] Devendorf de-committed but they were blown away this weekend. They're coming in tomorrow. Illinois is coming in Thursday. Wake Forest called and Kansas called. Skip Prosser called my dad."
Frasor now has to be careful to get a grip on the situation. Purdue called and offered but he had to tell the Boilermakers "no." That is a phrase he is going to learn more about in the coming days.
"I've got to kind of control this somehow," he said. "It's incredible. I don't know how to handle it kind of."
Frasor did his damage and pumped up his reputation by shooting the basketball. On the circuit, he slides over and plays the two guard because of Mike Mullins, the Wolves point man. However, during the high school season, Frasor runs the show himself. His role with Brother Rice is to be the playmaker, not the scorer. In AAU ball, his role reverses.
"I do it all during all the time with my high school," Frasor said. "I'll easily break my high school assist record. I don't score nearly as much for my high school as I do for the Wolves.
"I really think I'll end up playing the point, even though I could play the two if [colleges] want me to have the best players on the court."
