Josh Frazier of Har-Ber High School in Springdale, Ark., has been selected to play in the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, joining an elite group of All-Americans. Those selected will play in the game on Saturday, January 4, 2014, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will feature the nation’s top 90 high school football players.
“Frazier is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Har-Ber High School,” said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing. “Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection.”
Frazier is rated as a Scout.com four-star prospect, the No. 22 defensive tackle prospect nationally.
"Frazier is a powerful and strong defensive tackle," Scout.com National Analyst Greg Powers informed. "He gets a good push up front and will blow offensive linemen backwards."
"He often uses his natural strengh and effort to dominate high school opponents, because he's so powerful at that level he has not really worked on too much technique. If he can get his technique to catchup with his power, he will present major mismatches."
Nebraska, Arkansas, USC, Alabama, Texas A&M and Auburn are the schools reportedly in the mix for his services and he may make his announcement during the game's broadcast.
In the 2013 NFL Draft, there were a total of 8 U.S. Army All-American Bowl Alumni drafted in the first round. The 2013 U.S. Army All-American Bowl drew a crowd of 40,133 to the Alamodome, and was the most-watched sporting event on television over the weekend, excluding the NFL playoffs.
