Festivities at the 2013 McDonald's All-American Game began on Monday morning. One of the biggest stories of the practice was the play of Texan Keith Frazier for the East squad. Also a story is that Frazier is just one of three undecided players -- Aaron Gordon and Andrew Wiggins are the other two.
Ranked No. 22 in the 2013 Rivals150, the nearly 6-foot-6 shooting guard from Dallas (Texas) Kimball was supposed to make a decision among SMU, Texas A&M and Texas Tech last Thursday, but the five-star just wasn't ready to make his choice.
"I wasn't ready, I was second guessing myself," Frazier said of postponing his decision. "I'm just trying to take my time and make the right decision. I don't want to be one of those players who picks the wrong school."
SMU is the hometown school, and Frazier said that he is a regular on campus to play ball or stop by and say hello to the coaches. He's also impressed with Larry Brown.
"SMU, I like Larry Brown. I'm real comfortable with him and his coaching staff," Frazier said. "I go by, stop by to say hello to the coaches or whatever."
At Texas Tech, Frazier had been watching the coaching search very closely. He admitted that the main reason he was interested in Tech was interim head coach Chris Walker. However, with Tubby Smith reportedly getting the job on Monday -- after Frazier spoke with Rivals.com at practice -- the Red Raiders' chances would appear to be greatly hampered.
Texas A&M has been trying to make a late run, and he's listening.
"I'm cool with Billy Kennedy," Frazier said. "I'm cool with Coach Reese, and I'm cool with J-Mychal (Reese)."
For these next few days, at least, Frazier is looking to continue his strong play at the McDonald's game. He drilled NBA-range 3-pointers, got to the rim and showed creativity with his passing while opening a lot of eyes.
"Everybody knows that I can shoot," Frazier said. "I'm just doing what I do best. I just play. But I can shoot so I'm going to shoot. I'm going to try and mix it up a little bit, you know, pass, get to the rim, rebound some."
Once Frazier finishes in Chicago, he'll head back home and get back to talking with his family and coaches in order to make a decision.
"I don't' feel a lot of pressure right now," he said. "My circle is doing their best to keep the pressure off me, and I'm just trying to take it easy and make the right decision."
