Garland, Texas defensive end Marquis Frazier knows that before he can heavily focus on recruiting, school must come first. That's why all of his energy is split between working out, a part time job, and studying for the SAT.
Though several schools have offered Frazier a scholarship such as Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Iowa State, Nebraska, Kansas, Kansas State, and Texas Tech, the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Frazier is backing off the favorites talk.
"I don't really know now," Frazier said about top schools. "I'm working to try to figure that out again. I had Florida on top, but having a school that hasn't offered you on top isn't really the smart right now. It might as well just be a random unknown school."
Frazier didn't take any visits this summer, but is starting to think about plans for this fall.
"I'd probably have to say Florida will be a trip and I may try to go somewhere far up North," Frazier said. "I may go see Michigan State since they've offered. At least that could be one of them."
The talented Frazier's interest in the Gators has a lot to do with a teammate of his, 2006 prospect Brandon Antwine, signing with Florida this past February.
Nonetheless, he doesn't plan rushing anything towards his commitment.
"I think I'll decide sometime during the season," he said. "During the season, things may change with favorites and all that. I'm just trying to get my test done and go from there."
Frazier is rated as the No. 67 overall prospect in Texas.
