Keith Frazier is one of the highest-ranked uncommitted players in the Class of 2013.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Dallas Kimball is the No. 5 shooting according to Rivals.
“He can’t sign until April,” Erven “Big E” Davis, Frazier’s mentor told SNY.tv. “He’s in no rush [to make a] decision on what might happen. Five schools are sticking out right now — SMU, LSU, Texas, Texas A&M and Arizona.
Frazier visited SMU Nov. 28 for their basketball game with Utah and enjoyed it.
“It went well,” Davis said. “The guys played with a lot of energy and got up and down the court.”
No additional visits are planned right now, but more will likely come during the season.
“We are just in the process of starting to look at his schedule and how it relates to the schedules of the teams he’s interested in,” David said.
“He will to try to set up officials with some of these schools. Most of these schools he’s been on unoffiical visits.”
Wherever he lands, Frazier could be a major contributor.
“The sky’s the limit,” Davis said. “He will be a dynamic player wherever he goes. He only gets better if he gets to the next level and his body gets stronger and he gets more and more knowledge about how to play the game.
“His athletic ability and talent is second to none. Whatever school he goes to they’re gonna get a kid that ‘s going to help the team get to the next level.”
