Each and every time Phenom Hoops gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Max Frazier
Committed to: Siena
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
“Starting with Frazier, whose appeal should be obvious as a long, bouncy 6-foot-8 forward with sharp instincts as a rebounder and shot-blocker. He’s a fluid athlete who moves very well for his size and doesn’t necessarily require a ton of touches to make his presence felt. Frazier utilizes his insane length to consistently force opponents to think twice about attempting shots within his area. He protects the rim effectively from opposing finishers, but can also accumulate deflections and block jumpers when closing out on perimeter shooters. Offensively, Frazier typically operates around the basket and looks to apply pressure within five to ten feet. He’s a capable shooting threat but finds most of his scoring production through touch in the post or finishing above the rim. Additionally, Frazier poses a constant threat for lobs, putbacks, and crowd-pleasing dunks. He absolutely should have more action within his recruitment, as Frazier is clearly a difference-maker at the next level.”
“While his per-game numbers don’t necessarily pop off the page, Frazier is the type of guy who doesn’t require a ton of touches to make a lasting impression. His length, instincts, and generally bouncy nature allow him to consistently outplay opponents on both ends of the floor. Frazier can finish around the basket or above the rim and lurks extremely well for lobs and putbacks. He moves with incredible fluidity for his size. Frazier can knock down the occasional jumper if needed, but mainly prioritizes dominating a game as a rebounder and rim-protector. His ability to affect the game in a reliable, yet low-maintenance manner is a massive part of what should make him so appealing to college coaches.”
“He’s extremely long, bouncy, and able to wreak havoc on either end of the floor. Frazier is a capable shooting but finds most of his scoring opportunities through cutting, transition play, and posing a constant threat for lobs and putbacks. His presence is easy to appreciate, as he’s able to produce within the flow of the game and doesn’t require a ton of touches to be impactful.”
“Max Frazier continues to have a stellar senior season. His combination of length, athleticism and skill make him extremely versatile. Defensively, he is able to guard multiple positions and protects the rim. Offensively, he finishes above the rim at the end of drives and on drop-offs. He can face up and make plays off the bounce. And for a forward, he is an excellent passer as he makes the right reads in drive and kick situations.”
