Keith Frazier's SMU career comes to end with transfer; UNT a likely landing spot

Keith Frazier's SMU career comes to end with transfer; UNT a likely landing spot

Keith Frazier's career at SMU officially ended Friday with his transfer.

Frazier, a junior, is probably headed to North Texas, although he also is considering UT-Arlington and Texas State, a source said. He will be a midterm transfer, eligible in spring 2017.

The former McDonald's All-American was averaging 11.9 points and 4.4 rebounds a game before leaving the team for "personal reasons" after the Mustangs' win over Tulsa on Dec. 29. He could not be reached for comment.

Despite having only seven scholarship players, No. 10 SMU (16-0) is the only undefeated Division I team. The Mustangs play Sunday at Tulane.

Frazier, a Kimball standout, was struggling emotionally over being blamed for SMU's postseason ban, his former high school coach said. He was at the center of an NCAA investigation that revealed a former secretary completed an online course for him. He also reportedly was upset at being replaced in the starting lineup by freshman Shake Milton.

SMU coach Larry Brown had held out hope that Frazier would remain with the team since the shooting guard initially left for "personal reasons."

But Frazier did not show for a planned meeting with Brown on Wednesday. On Friday they met in Brown's office.
