The point guard talent pool is getting shallower by the day. Houston (Texas) Strake Jesuit point guard Tim Frazier ended his recruitment on Thursday.
The 6-foot-2, 160-pound senior is headed to Penn State, according to his Houston Elite AAU coach Rick Nelson.
"Penn State had been recruiting him hard since the summer, coming down to Houston every chance they were allowed to come down. They made him feel like part of the team even before he got there," Nelson said.

"They made him feel like he was part of the family. They showed him a lot of love and explained how well he fits into their program and how they expect a lot out of him when he gets there. He felt like it was a great fit for him."
Frazier was scheduled to visit Stanford this weekend. He also visited San Diego and TCU. Providence and Southern Cal recently made inquiry calls about him. Frazier is the first player to commit to Penn State in 2009.
Nelson said the Nittany Lions are getting a complete point guard in Frazier.
"They are getting a point guard that is quick with the basketball that can get everyone involved and make things happen on the offensive end and he's really aggressive on the defensive end of the floor," Nelson said. "He can control the tempo of every ball game he plays in."
