Ike's Alek Fracone opts for Oakland U

Oakland coach Greg Kampe must have developed a fondness for Eisenhower players after the success he found with forward Corey Petros.
Eagles' guard Alek Frascone gave his verbal commitment to Oakland University Sunday evening.
Living in the shadows of the Rochester-area school and attending summer camps at the O'rena left a lasting impression on the 6-foot-2, 185-pound combo guard.
"I've been wanting to go there since I was a little kid," Frascone said.
Frascone said he has yet to take an official visit, adding he also received offers from Division II schools Northwood, Hillsdale and Lake Superior State University. Oakland offered him in late June, Frascone said.
Frascone said the offer came as a preferred walk-on with the possibility of becoming a scholarship player.
Of his future coach, Frascone said of Kampe, "He's not a soft coach. He'll get on you if you make mistakes."
