DALLAS (AP) — Dallas public school officials are looking into whether a star player on a two-time Texas basketball championship team may have transferred improperly to the school so he could play ball.
Dallas TV station WFAA initially questioned how Keith Frazier moved from suburban Irving to enroll at Dallas Kimball just before the start of the season last year. The station reported Monday (http://bit.ly/MdUWQB) that besides Frazier, at least eight other players on the 4A title team are transfers into the district. The station says two players were transfers the previous year when Kimball won the state championship.
A district committee from the University Interscholastic League approved the transfers and Frazier's mother has denied anything improper. The team's coach, Royce Johnson, says he does not violate UIL rules by recruiting players.
