PFF Places WVU Football’s Zach Frazier Near Top on List of Best Centers



Zach Frazier at practice

Zach Frazier is no stranger to receiving high praise, and this time he gets some from Pro Football Focus.

PFF College put out a list of their highest graded centers, which ranks Frazier second overall in college football. They have Frazier with a 80.8 grade, placing him as one of only three centers in the country with more than 80 data points by their calculations.

Frazier is just behind Matthew Lee of Miami (FL) and ever so slightly ahead of Michigan’s Drake Nugent. It’s fair to say PFF’s rankings are not the be-all and end-all on their own, but this is far from the only pre-season list regarding the Fairmont, West Virginia native among the best at his position.

Last month, Frazier was named to the Walter Camp Preseason All-American team. This is the second straight year he’s made the prestigious Walter Camp team.

Many even regard Frazier as one of West Virginia’s players most likely to be drafted in the NFL next year.

Regardless of everything, the Mountaineers desperately need all of the preseason hype around Frazier to lead to the junior lineman to provide a stabilizing presence for the offense, especially since WVU will have a starting quarterback who has never guided a team to start a college season before in Week 1 at State College.
