Colorado commit holding steady
George Frazier had just heard the news Sunday evening that Colorado fired coach Jon Embree so the Monrovia, Calif., linebacker wasn't quite sure of his next step.
Before Frazier, who committed to the Buffaloes in June, makes any moves he wants to sit down with his family and discuss their options. Possibly waiting to see which coach gets hired at Colorado could be the plan.
"I'm really not sure right now," Frazier said. "I have to talk with my dad about it. Once I'm home I'm going to talk to my family about it to see where we stand.
"I want to see who gets hired. That is the approach. I'm not really sure though because I want to talk with my family before I can say exactly what I'm going to do."
Frazier, a 6-foot-2, 230-pound prospect, said he didn't have an extensive relationship with Embree but talked more with the Colorado assistant coaches. If they're not retained that could be an issue but it's still too early for him to make any solid determinations.
"I built a really strong relationship with the staff," Frazier said.
"Coach Embree and I didn't talk too much, I dealt with everybody else. He was the head coach so he had a lot to worry about. We were cool but I didn't really know him very well."
Fresno State, San Jose State and Washington State have also offered Frazier, who said his recruitment has slowed down after his pledge to Colorado and especially during his senior season.
There is a chance it might get busy again.
"Other schools are still recruiting me but it isn't as tough," Frazier said. "It's been the same schools, they've talked to me a little bit, but during the season I expected it to slow down a little bit."
