Johnny Frasier confirms he will play in NC State football Spring Game

NC State football fans will get their first glimpse of Johnny Frasier in a Wolfpack uniform during the Spring Game on April 9.

No, it won’t be a meaningful game, but the simple fact that Frasier will be playing didn’t seem likely just last week. The redshirt freshman missed multiple practices while going through concussion protocol but confirmed with NSJ Sports that he will be ready to go for the Spring Game.

When asked if he’ll play, Frasier simply answered, “yes sir.” The former Princeton back also praised the Wolfpack coaching staff for preparing him.

“It wasn’t really all that bad,” Frasier said of missing time during spring practice. “I still kept my head in the playbook and talked to the coaches throughout everything. I didn’t get too behind because they made sure to keep me in the loop. It was like another day at practice every time I talked to them.

“These coaches are amazing. They’ve got me to where I need to be.”

Frasier spoke about several other topics including his expectations for NC State, the quarterback battle and bulking up during his redshirt year during his 1-on-1 interview with NSJ Sports.
