Running back Johnny Frasier out of Princeton, NC will be at the Capstone this weekend for an official visit.

Currently, he has given a verbal commitment to Florida State but is still looking around. If Alabama lands Frasier, it may be thanks to the folks up north who wear that gawdawful orange.

Frasier told

"My commitment to Florida State is still solid, but I’ve been doing a lot of thinking over the past few weeks."

His most recent trip was to an unofficial visit to Tennessee on Oct. 25 for the Alabama game. It was his third trip of the month, as he took an official visit to Rocky Top and an unofficial to Florida earlier in October.

And now, he is coming to visit Tuscaloosa.

At 5-11 and 220 lbs, Frasier might remind you of Mark Ingram - and not just because he wears number 22. He is a tough runner who can break tackles and bust the long ones with 4.45 speed (he has been timed as fast as 10.7 seconds in the 100-meter dash). He also exceeds at catching the ball out of the backfield.

As a junior, Frasier gained a massive 3,045 yards rushing and 45 touchdowns plus 555 yards receiving for another five scores.

Also visiting this weekend is strong-side defensive end Kyle Phillips who is a out of Nashville, TN (Hillsboro).

He has the size and frame (6-4/258) to be a disruptive end at the next level. As a sophomore in 2012, he recorded 12 sacks and forced 5 fumbles. (No 2013,2014 stats available as of now)

The 4-star runs a 4.61 time in the 40. He has already made official visits to Ole Miss and LSU plus several unofficial visits to Tennessee.

His mother, Teresa Phillips, played basketball at Vanderbilt and is currently the athletic director at Tennessee State University. She will undoubtedly provide good feedback for her son.
