Vols, Tide, others beginning to notice S.C. Top 25 choice

Some players—particularly the talented ones hidden away at small schools—take awhile to attract attention. Defensive lineman Kendrick Frazier of of Class A Denmark-Olar High is such a player.

Frazier, who was not among The Observer’s S.C. Top 25 Prospects on our spring list, has vaulted to No.14 in our preseason rankings following strong performances during the May evaluation period.

He started out with offers from smaller schools like Buffalo, Coastal Carolina and S.C. State. Then Kentucky jumped in, and South Carolina, N.C. State and Maryland followed.

Most recently, scholarship bids have come from Alabama, Tennessee and Wisconsin.

Frazier, who is 6-foot-2 and 245 pounds, will be watched closely by almost everyone this season.

He’s likely a DT in college, although he also plays TE for the Vikings. He has excellent 4.7 speed in the 40-yard dash for his size. And a lot of attention coming his way.
