PROSPECT PROFILES: Duppong and Frazier hasn't given as much attention to the N4C Conference in Illinois as it deserves. But we recently spoke with several head coaches in the conference including Bob MacDougall at #8-ranked Joliet JC in Illinois. Here's a look at his top players.

CB Charlie Frazier
5-10, 185

Joliet's Frazier is perhaps the top corner in the N4C conference this year. The sophomore from Chicago runs a 4.4 forty and is already committed to Illinois. Out of high school he went to Bethune-Cookman but didn't play, which means he has only 2 to play 2 for the Illini after he graduates in May. Frazier is very strong and "intimidates with his contact" per head coach Bob MacDougall. Frazier is a two year starter. Frazier was just named to the N4C All-Conference team.

RB Craig Duppong
5-9, 195

"He's the heart and soul of our team," said HC Bob MacDougall. "There aren't any kids that work harder. He's got great balance and will run through you or around you...he has enough speed. And marvelous hands out of the backfield." Super in the weight room with 330 BP and 500 squat. It was announced on Wednesday that Duppong, who played at Lockport High School in Illinois, was named the 2001 Player of the Year in the North Central Community College Conference (N4C). During the regular season Duppong gained a total of 1,209 yards (5.1 avg.) with 15 TDs and has a two year rushing total over 1,700 yards.  Against Wm. Rainey Harper he had 205 yards rushing, which was his season high. Duppong is getting recruiting attention from several schools including Illinois and Iowa.
