The 2020 guard averaged an eye opening 33.9 PPG in 17 games for Solid Rock Community who plays in the Suncoast Christian League. Frazier dropped 50 points in a win over West Hernando Christian on Feb. 6 where he hit 8-of-14 from long range.

The 6’2″, 155-pounder is deceivingly athletic and despite his skinny frame, he’s able to get around guys on attacks to the rim. Frazier decided to transfer to Superior Collegiate for his junior season.

He had nothing but nice things to say about his former program, Solid Rock.

“That school really cares about the kid’s progression and academic success. The person responsible for keeping me on track was coach Paul [Eckley] the athletic director,” Frazier told Prep Hoops. “He really was like an older brother to me making sure I did everything I was supposed to and having my back through anything. We used to have talks about my future and he let me in on the insight of other athletes he’s been around it kept me focused.”

Now headed to a young Superior program to play under head coach John Bianchi, Frazier says he believes that this will be his breakout year.

“I’ve worked so hard to perfect everything in my game and I’m starting to get noticed by a bigger crowd now,” he said. “Coach Bianchi has full trust in me and I’m going to prove everyone who ever doubted me wrong.”

This summer, Frazier has played for Bianchi with Team Under Pressure and now Thunderstruck on the Adidas Gauntlet.

“Things are going great. It’s a humbling experience playing with such high level of competition,” he said. “I have a big role on the team for scoring and my coaches trust my ability so it makes it a lot easier. I’ve only been with them for one tournament but I plan on being with them for the rest of my high school AAU career.”

No offers have come yet for the rising junior, but Frazier has drawn interest from the likes of Tampa, UC San Diego, Florida Southern, Southeastern, Concordia Nebraska and Queens Charlotte.

He pointed to his jump shot his biggest strength. He wants to continue to improve his floater and moves around the rim.

Frazier says his confidence just recently at the age of 15.

“I was always in the gym 24/7 when everyone was partying and doing stuff they weren’t supposed to. Countless hours in the gym make you trust yourself a lot more,” he said. “Also, I used to go to the rec center and play against the grown folks and embarrass them. I started to realize that I was on a different level than the kids my age and that confidence transferred to the games.”

A humble and down to earth kid, Frazier is grateful for what lies ahead. He tends to make the most of each possession on the floor and if you leave him open for a split second, he’ll make you pay from deep. As he progresses, matures and adds muscle, Frazier is going to see his stock rise and his game transform in a large way.
