Matt Fraschilla, the son of TV analyst and former college basketball coach Fran Fraschilla, has committed to Harvard, Dave Telep of ESPN.com is reporting.
Fraschilla attends Highland Park High School (Texas) and is a 5-10 point guard with a solid set of all-around skills. Clearly having learned from his father, the younger Fraschilla is a solid passer and low-to-the-ground point guard with strong ballhandling skills. He averaged 7.9 assists per game last season as a junior.
“I’m really grateful for the opportunity,” Fraschilla told Telep. “I started every game in high school. This will be kind of different, being a role player, so I just want to make everybody on the team better.”
For Harvard coach Tommy Amaker, Fraschilla becomes the third commit from the Class of 2013 for the Crimson. He joins forwards Hunter Myers and Zena Edosomwan in the class.
The elder Fraschilla coached college basketball for nine seasons at three different schools–Manhattan, St. John’s, and New Mexico. He amassed an overall record of 176-99 over that time, including making three total appearances in the NCAA tournament.
He now serves as an on-air college basketball commentator and analyst for ESPN. His son, James, plays college basketball at Oklahoma.
