Just a handful of days after announcing that he would be leaving the Auburn football program, Kiehl Frazier has found a new home at a decidedly lower level of college football.
Coach Todd Knight of Ouachita Baptist, a Div. II school in Arkadelphia, Ark., confirmed to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Monday that the quarterback/defensive back has enrolled in classes and will continue his playing career with the program this fall.
While Frazier, whose brother is an offensive lineman at OBU, will get the opportunity to compete for the starting quarterback job, Knight indicated that the player is willing to do anything to get on the field.
“He just wants a chance to compete for a position,” the coach told the Democrat-Gazette. “He’s willing to play anything, really. He’s got a great attitude about it.”
A four-star member of AU’s 2011 recruiting class, Frazier was rated as the No. 5 dual-threat quarterback in the country and the No. 1 player at any position in the state of Arkansas. Frazier was widely viewed as the future at the position, starting — and struggling immensely — the first five games of the 2012 season before giving way to Clint Moseley.
