UP NEXT: Denmark-Olar DE/TE Kendrick Frazier

In this edition of our "UP NEXT" series, we are going to introduce you to DE/TE, Kendrick Frazier, from out of Denmark-Olar High School. His name may be unfamiliar to most of you right now, but you can simply expect this 2010 prospect to make a huge splash on the recruiting radar before it is all said and done.

Denmark-Olar isn't exactly a recruiting hotbed for football. But every now and then they'd have a prospect to come through and gain some serious attention on the recruiting front. And this could simply be the case for this talented defensive end/tight end prospect.

Palmetto State football fans meet, Kendrick Frazier, a highly-talented DE/TE prospect from out of Denmark-Olar High School. Standing at 6-4, and weighing in at 245 pounds, Frazier already has the dimensions of a college football player. Not only does he fit the bill from a physical standpoint, but he possess good speed for an athlete his size. The Denmark-Olar star informed us that he can run a 4.6 consistently in the forty-yard dash.

Frazier made a huge statement on the playing field last fall, tallying up 91 tackles and 8 quarterback sacks on the defensive side of the ball for the Vikings. And as a result, several major colleges have been expressing some early interest in the 2010 sleeper early on. "I've been getting a bunch of letters from several different schools," Frazier said. "South Carolina, Clemson, North Carolina State, Coastal Carolina, Maryland and Wisconsin are some of the schools that have been sending me stuff."

Kendrick's rare blend of size and speed at the defensive end spot literally speaks high volume. However, the big guy shared with us a few other aspects of his game that makes him quite a unique player on the field. "I'm a pretty aggressive player on the field," Frazier told SCPrepNation.com. "I love to play physical. That's my style. I go hard on every play. I try to give 100% on every down."

After discussing the upside portion of his game with us, the Denmark native also informed us of the areas he'd like to improve in. "I need to work on my footwork, my speed, and my agility," Frazier said. "I just want to be able to move better as a player. I also want to get stronger. I want to be able to dominate my opponents on the field."

Kendrick is opened with his recruitment, and is very interested in hearing what everyone has to say and/or offer. However, there are still a couple of things that the big DE expects in a program. "I want to be in a good atmosphere," he said. "I want to be around some good people with good character. I want to go to a program that is going to help me get to the next level; a school that's going to help me become a better player/athlete."
