Fox Scores 1st 2013 Commit

With the departures of seniors Gerald Robinson and Dustin Ware at season's end, the Dawgs will be left with only junior Vincent Wiliams and incoming freshmen Charles Mann and Kenny Gaines. It looks like Gaines will, most likely play the SG roll, but he does have the ability to run the point if need be.

Thus, the PG position was a large priority - and apparently so was 2013 PG, J.J. Frazier of Ludowici, GA (Faith Baptist). It's my understanding that Frazier committed two days after Fox quietly offered last Wednesday. He averaged 27 points a game on a pretty decent prep school schedule this year, so it doesn't occur to me that the level of competition factors into his production. No matter what the competition, it's hard to shoot 51% from behind the 3-pt line.

Here's a little blurb from Rivals on him at the Elite Hoops Showcase:

5-foot-9 2013 PG J.J. Frazier (Faith Baptist Christian Academy- Hinesville, GA) - The fastest player from end to end with the ball. Can hurt you in multiple ways in transition..pull-up three, stop and pop or basket finish. Good passer. Has interest from Geogia, Clemson, Miami, South Carolina, Georgia State and others.

He's a three star recruit at this point, but I figure that he'll find himself in the updated Rivals 150 for 2013. A little undersized at 5'10 (most sites have him listed at 5'8, but his coach says he's a legit 5'10), he's an extremely good passer and shooter and can finish around the rim. A little under the radar, but nonetheless a good get it looks like.
