J.J. Frazier is easily one of the best players on the Georgia Bulldogs basketball team, and is now recognized as one of the best rising seniors in the country.

Bleacher Report's list of the top 25 seniors includes Frazier at No. 13, saying the 5'10 guard was "downright untouchable" at times during the last season.

During a particularly impressive five-game stretch toward the end of last season—he was named the KenPom MVP of each game—Frazier averaged 23.8 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.2 assists while shooting 44.1 percent from beyond the arc.

And unlike many volume scoring guards who fill up the stat sheet in a bad way, too, Frazier was pleasantly protective of the ball, finishing the season with a 2.75 assist-to-turnover ratio and recording more turnovers than assists in a game on just three occasions.

He's one of only eight players during the last six years to average 15 points, 4 assists and 4 rebounds a game while also allowing less than 2 turnovers. Not too shabby.
