There is a very good reason 6-foot-3, 180-pound combo guard Bobby Frasor plays like a coach on the floor. His father Bobby Frasor is a legendary Illinois high school coach and played point guard for Wisconsin. Wisconsin and a host of other high majors are closely tracking Frasor, the No. 41 player in the Rivals75 for the class of 2005.
“He’s got tremendous court presence,” said Mike Mullins, who coaches Frasor’s summer team the Illinois Wolves. “He is very skilled and has great court vision. He is a tremendous leader and tough player. That is what coaches like Coach Crean of Marquette like so much about him.”
Coach Crean has made the trip to Blue Island, Illinois to watch Frasor and his Brother Rice team play more than once as have many other high major schools.
“A host of mid majors have offered him,” said Coach Mullins. “Marquette has offered. Coach Crean has seen several games. Depaul and Nebraska have also offered. Stanford just asked for a transcript, which they have to have before they can offer. Georgia Tech is very interested, and Illinois and Wisconsin have all seen him play.”
Other schools who have seen Frasor play this season are North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Purdue, UCLA, Kansas, and Michigan State according to Coach Mullins.
Mullins pointed out that although Frasor plays different roles for his high school team and AAU team, there is one constant for every team he plays for.
“He is more of a scorer for his AAU team,” said Coach Mullins. “We play my son Bryan at point along with Bobby. On his high school team he is more of a point guard. They are 17-1... He has always been a part of winning programs.”
Frasor, along with Illinois Wolves teammates and top 2005 prospects Brian Mullins (6-foot-1, 175-pound point guard) and Sead Odzic (6-foot-3, 190-pound shooting guard), had a very successful summer last year, often playing up against the 17-under teams. Look for the Wolves to be one of the tougher teams on this year’s summer circuit.
