J.J. Frazier Becomes First 2013 Georgia Basketball Commit

The three-star PG was being looked at by several ACC schools but the lure of staying at home was too strong.

The Georgia Bulldogs received their first verbal commitment of the 2013 recruiting cycle when 5'8 PG J.J. Frazier of Ludowici, Georgia committed to Mark Fox's program on Friday.

While Frazier's height was a concern for many schools, he has the exceptional speed you would expect from an undersized guard. Erving Walker, a 5'6 senior PG from Florida, has shown that a lack of stature doesn't disqualify a PG from succeeding in the SEC.

Rivals rates Frazier as a solid three-star recruit, and he projects as the type of four-year player a program like Georgia needs to compete with the McDonald's All-American fueled juggernaut John Calipari has assembled at Kentucky.

He had outstanding offers from American and Wofford, and was being looked at by Virginia and Clemson, but according to his high school coach, the lure of staying at home was too strong:

"He wants to be a Georgia boy," Faith Baptist coach Matthew Sellars said. "He wouldn't mind playing somewhere else, but I think he was excited to play for his home state."

Here's a highlight video of Frazier on the AAU circuit:
