Branden Frazier, an offensively gifted guard from Bishop Loughlin High School in Brooklyn, New York, said despite the change in his college plans, he's pretty clear it was the best one.

Frazier, who initially committed to Hofstra, changed his decision after head coach Tom Pecora left the head coaching position to take the same title at Fordham.

"The staff had recruited me hard and I liked the coaches," said Frazier. "Once they told me they would still like me to come with them, I said I wanted to go to Fordham with them."

Frazier, 6-foot-3 and 180-pounds, is a shooting guard with skill of shooting the ball from deep. He played in the local game of the Jordan Brand All Star event held this past weekend at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

"I loved it," he said. "You see the bright lights when you come out. It was great just to be able to be out there."

Now Frazier is focused on his next task -- helping Pecora win some basketball games at Fordham. "I'm working on getting stronger," he said. "I'm working on becoming a better ballhander, adding more speed to my game on both sides of the ball."
