2011 Irmo WR David Frazier drew plenty of attention with a superb week of practice at the Shrine Bowl and a strong showing in the game. Schools came in late to recruit Frazier but he was all but set to sign with Elon on National Signing Day until a visit to Irmo specifically for teammate RB Dawan Scott changed things.
"Coach Willis from Miami Ohio came the Wednesday before signing day and he came to see Dawan and he saw my tape and said he loved it. Then he took back to Coach Treadwell and he also loved it. They offered me Thursday morning."
The last minute offer came somewhat as a surprise to Frazier but the RedHawks wanted the Irmo standout to check out the school for himself so they wasted no time in getting him on campus.
"They sent me on an official visit Friday. As soon as I stepped foot on campus, I loved it."
The RedHawks coaches showed Frazier around the campus and facilities in Ohio. They also talked about what they saw in the future for the talented wideout.
"They said I could be a great player in this program included with the great receivers they have already. They said that they were surprised no other D1-A schools had offered me."
Frazier said upon returning home and mulling his decision he searched within and prayed about the situation in order to find an answer.
"I felt so bad telling Elon that I was going to de-commit. I loved Elon but I prayed about where I should be for my future and it guided me to Miami(OH)."
Excited about the prospects of playing big time college football Frazier says he's continued his training in order to get ready for the college level.
"I am working on my speed and route running. I'm also going to hit the weight room too."
The RedHawks now will have two Palmetto State and Irmo High standouts on the roster as Frazier's good friend Dawan Scott also signed with the Ohio program.
"Me and Dawan are going to be roommates. It's just great to go to college with a teammate that him and I had so many accomplishments at the high school level. Now it's time to do it at the college level."
Frazier says he and Scott plan on enrolling in school in June, more than likely June 28th.
With that said look for Frazier and Scott to continue their playmaking ways for the RedHawks over the next few seasons.
