There’s talk around the Cowboys camp that OSU may reincorporate the tight end in their offense. Missouri prep standout Jordan Frazier, looking to seize on a potential opportunity, showed up before signing day, enrolling in January and participating in spring drills.
The freshman out of Lighthouse Christian in Springfield offers his take on his first semester in Stillwater:
How has your experience been so far?
“So far, I couldn't have asked for anything better. It's certainly a family. Having the opportunity to play football anywhere is a blessing, but I'd say here at Oklahoma State they take it to a whole other level. It's something that's going to carry on for the rest of our lives.”
Has it been at all overwhelming?
“Coming in early, it was obviously a pretty quick transition. I think, for me, it went really well. I have definitely grown as a person and an athlete. I couldn't have asked for anything better, either.”
Have there been any surprises?
“For the most part, it's been what I expected. I think it's probably been a little bit better, but other than that, I'd say pretty much what I expected.”
What have you seen as the biggest difference in the game between high school and college?
“This is something that is said a lot, and it's definitely true — just the speed of the game, especially here at Oklahoma State, because you run a quick, no-huddle offense. I'd say that's the main thing.”
What were your first impressions of college?
“I like its dynamic a lot more than high school. It's not like 7:45 to 3:15 every single day, same classes, that kind of thing. I definitely like that a lot better. I like the freedom more. I think as long as you have self-discipline it'll work out for you and you won't have any problems.”
What has been the biggest change?
“Making the transition from family life to being on your own and being independent. It hits you fast, especially if you come in early. One day having to pack your bags and kind of have to start your own life.”
What are your plans for the summer?
“I'm looking forward to it being closer to the season. I'm really excited for that. This summer I'm excited for football being the dominating priority. I can focus more of my time on the sport and getting better at it, becoming more acclimated to the Big 12 style and Oklahoma State style of play.”
