Savion Frazier was a jack-of-all-trades type player for Gar-Field High School (Woodbridge, VA) last season. He saw playing time at a variety of positions, including quarterback, running back, linebacker and safety. A versatile and athletic prospect who plays multiple sports, Frazier is drawing interest from Division 1A programs.

“Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Michigan, Notre Dame, Marshall, Virginia Tech,” Frazier mentioned as schools currently showing interest. He has received letters from all of these programs.

Frazier, who moved to Virginia in the eighth grade, has family in Alabama and would be open to going to school further south. At this point, he remains open to any school that wants to get involved.

“I’m open, but I may prefer to go somewhere [further south],” Frazier said. “Right now, I’m just waiting to see who shows interest.”

He did play defense on occasion and is getting looks as a safety/linebacker prospect on the next level, but Frazier primarily played offense and wouldn’t mind sticking on that side of the ball.

“I play mostly offense,” Frazier said. “I really like offense. I like to play running back.”

Frazier didn’t play running back for his entire junior season, but when he did he was very effective and he will start out there in 2006.

“We played him at quarterback his sophomore year and he played quarterback until the sixth game last season,” Gar-Field head coach Joe Mangano said. “Then, we switched him to running back and he scored 11 touchdowns on the season and averaged seven yards per carry. He was a playmaker on offense.”

Mangano notes several characteristics that make Frazier a special player.

“He has character, work ethic and he’s intelligent,” Mangano said. “He’s 6-2, 210 pounds and he runs about a 4.55 in the 40-yard dash. He’s really only started growing into his body. He has good size and speed, but the best thing about him may be his work ethic. And again, he’s intelligent. He’s a 3.0 student.”

Frazier is currently playing power forward for the Gar-Field varsity basketball squad. Following this season, he intends to work hard to improve his speed before the beginning of next football season. He is looking to show off his speed and athleticism at either the Penn State or Georgia Nike
