Chandler Fraser-Pauls, a two-sport student/athlete from the Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey, has the ability to help in both basketball and soccer on the college level.

He's certainly an impact player on the high school level in these two sports as shown by his recent season in soccer and previous years playing hoops.

In addition, he sharpened his floor general skills over the past season.
