The Springfield Lighthouse Chargers' senior tight end, #85, Jordan Frazier, announced his verbal commitment to The Fighting Illini of the Big Ten Conference.
I spoke briefly with Jordan before the National spotlight game between the Chargers and the Dallas HSAA homeschool team.
He said he had entertained several Division One offers, including a strong bid by the Arkansas Razorbacks, but settled on the University of Illinois.
Among his reasons for the decision, he said Illinois is the place he felt he could have the most immediate impact. Frazier has played for the Lighthouse Chargers as a tight end and defensive end.
His large size (6'6", 247lbs.) along with his great hands and exceptional speed make him an excellent college prospect. Jordan plans to complete his academic studies a semester early and make the committment in writing on National Signing Day, on February 5th.
He plans to join the team for spring drills and begin his college classes as soon as possible.
