NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. Kiehl Frazier won admiration from Auburn fans when he gracefully accepted a move to another position after losing the preseason battle to be Auburns starting quarterback, but he might be thinking about playing quarterback again somewhere else.
While Frazier insists hes focused on his special teams role in Auburns BCS final showdown with Florida State, he said Saturday that he has considered transferring.
I did, he said, but thats not something Im focused on right now. Im just focused on beating Florida State.
Pressed on whether he might leave after this season, he said, I think its a possibility, yeah, but Im not sure yet.
Frazier is a junior but has a redshirt year plus one year of eligibility left.
He was USA Todays national offensive player of the year after his senior season at Shiloh Christian High School in Springdale (Ark.) High School.
At Auburn, he saw action as a change-of-pace or wildcat quarterback as a true freshman in 2011. He won the starting job going into 2012 but struggled in a new, pro-style system and eventually lost the job to Jonathan Wallace.
Frazier lost a four-way battle with Wallace, Nick Marshall and Jeremy Johnson before the 2013 season.
