When Larry Brown took over at SMU after last season, there were expectations he and his staff would be able to attract high-level players to the Mustangs. He's done it via the transfer route with Crandall Head (Illinois), Markus Kennedy (Villanova), and Nic Moore (Illinois State).
And now Brown has added an elite high school prospect to the fold, as Keith Frazier committed to the Mustangs on Tuesday.

(Yes, that's a dollar sign in his tweet.)
Frazier, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Kimball (Texas), is one of the best scorers in the country. He has deep range on his outside shot and he is capable of getting hot in a hurry. Over the past couple of years, he has improved his ability to go off the dribble and finish at the rim or in the mid-range.
Frazier is ranked No. 30 in the 247 Sports Composite rankings.
He chose SMU over Texas Tech and Texas A&M, although Arizona and Texas were on him earlier this season. Tech was very close, but the decision by the Red Raiders to hire Tubby Smith instead of interim head coach Chris Walker pushed Frazier toward SMU.
Frazier is the fourth member of SMU's recruiting class, joining four-star forward Sterling Brown, junior college transfer Yanick Moreira and forward Ben Moore.
