Former SMU Mustangs and North Texas Mean Green guard Keith Frazier has finally found his next collegiate home, FanRag Sports learned on Monday morning. As a result, Frazier has committed to the UTEP Miners men’s basketball program, a source close to the situation has informed FanRag Sports.

FanRag Sports previously reported that the well-traveled graduate transfer would be immediately eligible to play in 2017-18 upon transferring to his next destination. While serving as a graduate transfer at this point in his collegiate tenure, Frazier previously suited up for the Mustangs for three seasons before spending just one go-round with the Mean Green of North Texas.

The up-and-coming guard most recently produced an even eight points, 3.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists and 0.3 steals over the course of 18.8 minutes per game for North Texas in 2016-17. It is also worth noting that in what would become his final go-round at SMU, Frazier averaged a single-season carer-high 11.9 points across 28.8 minutes per outing. Adding 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.9 steals during that same campaign, he also shot just under 45 percent from the field alongside a 36.6 percent clip from behind the arc.
