2013 shooting guard Keith Frazier from Dallas (Tex.) Kimball has reportedly eliminated the Texas Longhorns from his list of finalists. Frazier had previously eliminated Texas last summer. He rekindled talks with the Longhorns coaching staff this past winter, even taking an official visit to Austin in January. Despite the OV, Texas was always considered a long shot in Frazier's recruitment.
Per multiple sources, including ESPN's Reggie Rankin, Frazier will announce his decision on March 28. He will pick from the SMU Mustangs, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Texas A&M Aggies, and Auburn Tigers. Frazier took official visits to SMU and Texas Tech following his Texas trip. SMU has been considered the frontrunner since last winter.
As for Texas, the Longhorns already seem to have moved on from Frazier. Texas hosted two other shooting guards in recent weeks, bringing in Kendal Yancy-Harris from Richardson (Tex.) Berkner and DeMarcus Croaker from Orlando (Fla.) Jones.
Texas is very high on Croaker, who decommitted from Murray St. and has told multiple recruiting outlets that he is down to Murray St. and Texas. Croaker took an official visit to Texas in early March and is reportedly almost ready to announce his decision. It would be a heavy upset if he didn't pick Texas.
Yancy-Harris was released from his Letter of Intent by the USC Trojans, and has mentioned that he would like to take an official visit to Texas. As of now, the Longhorns look likely to take just one shooting guard in the class. That leaves Yancy-Harris as either a backup option to Croaker or a secondary signing if Texas loses a player to transfer. The Longhorns are also recruiting 2013 power forward Julius Randle from Plano (Tex.) Prestonwood Christian. He will announce his decision March 20.
