Three-star defensive end Marquis Frazier had drawn scholarship offers from a large amount of schools, but unable to get his qualifying test score, has decided to delay the Division I-A level for now.
The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Garland, Texas prospect has decided to head to Navarro Junior College in Corsicana and work to get eligible. Frazier held scholarship offers from Arkansas, Iowa State, Kansas, Kansas State, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and several others.
The JUCO route was just the best scenario, according to Frazier.
"I didn't get my test score, so I'm going to Navarro," Frazier said. "That was pretty much the only thing holding me back. Most of the schools wanted me to sign with them and then be placed, but I didn't want to do that.
"I wanted to stay open so I could keep my options open out of Navarro."
Frazier says he hopes to get what he needs to leave the junior college level after a year and a half. Navarro was just the perfect fit for him of all the junior colleges.
"They were cool people there and the coaches seemed great," he said. "It's a good place for me to go on and work towards getting to Division I."
