NJ Athlete Has Solid Interest In Two Sports

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a free player profile look at the individual sports career of Chandler Fraser-Pauls, who plays basketball and soccer at the Pennington School in New Jersey ...

Chandler Fraser-Pauls, a 6-foot, 160-pound basketball/soccer player from the Pennington School in Pennington, New Jersey, continues to see solid recruiting interest in both sports.

We had a chance to watch Chandler play basketball this summer during the July evaluation period and he handled himself nicely.

He has the ability to drain jumpers and he's a gritty player on the defensive side.

Considered a very good soccer player, Chandler has had interest from Columbia, Bucknell, Brown, Vermont, Princeton, and Lafayette.

There are plans to take some unofficial visits, according to his AAU coach, Matt Pauls.

As he matures physically, it's likely his game in soccer and basketball will get better. He'll have two doors of opportunity, plus he's an excellent student.


Chandler has an above average perimeter shot, more effective when shooting within the flow of a setup offense. He's also tough and possesses confidence, including taking on the bigger bodies near the rim.

An accomplished soccer player as well as being a very good student will open up many avenues of opportunities for this underclassman, a rising junior. He'll get stronger and his perimeter game will become more consistent too.

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Bernie Gurick at The Pennington School.


CAMPS ATTENDED: Columbia, Penn, Cornell, Bucknell and St. Joe's of Philadelphia.

COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: We previously reported that schools like Colgate, Penn, Niagara, Davidson, Boston University, and Elon had shown interest early on in the basketball area.

SOCCER - COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES OF INTEREST: Amherst, NYU, Wesleyan, Emory, Kenyon, Ohio Wesleyan and Middlebury have indicated that Chandler could play both sports at its respective schools.
