Trent Frazier has committed to Illinois.

Numerous Twitter accounts, including his high school coach Matthew Colin, confirmed the commitment.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound guard from West Palm Beach, Florida, made his decision during his official visit in Champaign.

Frazier, a four-star recruit, is ranked as the 20th point guard in the nation, according to 247sports.com. The site ranks him No. 8 in Florida.

Frazier selected Illinois over schools such as Baylor, Kansas State, Memphis and Stephen F. Austin.

With the announcement of Frazier’s commitment, John Groce’s class of 2017 has expanded to four. Frazier joins the company of five-star center Jeremiah Tilmon, four-star guard DaMonte Williams and three-star guard Javon Pickett.

Two scholarships remain for the class of 2017.
