UTEP added well-traveled graduate transfer wing Keith Frazier for the 2017-18 season. A former McDonald’s All-American and five-star prospect, Frazier started his career at SMU before moving on to North Texas for one season.
A 6-foot-5 scorer, Frazier twice averaged double-figures at SMU before leaving to go the Mean Green. Last season for North Texas, Frazier averaged 8.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game while shooting 35 percent from the field.
If Frazier can re-gain his scoring touch with some more efficient shooting then he could help an experienced group at UTEP that could use some more scoring punch. Senior guard Omega Harris is back along with center Matt Willms and junior forward Paul Thomas to form a team that should be among the best in Conference USA next season.
