Marcell Frazier signed with UNLV out of high school, ended up at College of the Siskiyous, and at some point caught the eye of one of college football's best defensive line coaches. From the original Frazier Commits post above:

I have no idea if (or how soon) Frazier can handle power-conference offensive tackles, but it's not too hard to see the raw potential Craig Kuligowski and company saw in offering him. Dude's got some speed off the edge. Now Coach Kul can work on developing everything else.

Frazier redshirted in one of his two JUCO years, so he will come to Mizzou with three years to play three. There's certainly a need for ready-made ends in 2015, but he could be a situational guy who develops into an every-down threat later in his career. Regardless, he's fast.

Against SEC linemen, he'll obviously need to continue developing a repertoire that goes beyond the speed rush, but a) that's one hell of a speed rush, and b) you can see in his highlight film the ability to diagnose situations and get to full-speed quickly. There's a lot of potential here, and ESPN.com saw it, too, giving him a four-star designation.

In terms of height and weight, he is basically Shane Ray's size; we'll take as many Ray comparisons as we can get, yes?
