Lee draws 'Who's Who' in Hampton

HAMPTON, Va. – After a stellar showing at the first leg of the Nike-EYBL in Minneapolis last week, Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley junior big man Marcus Lee has seen his recruitment, and subsequently, his phone, blow up over the course of the last week.

Lee (6-9, 215) had Krzyzewski, Calipari, Self, Barnes, Miller and more looking on in Hampton.

Since his play last weekend, where he averaged 9.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks through four games, the 6-foot-9, 215-pound forward has scored scholarship offers from the likes of Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, Florida and most recently, Duke.

"It's extremely overwhelming," Lee said. "It's crazy but it's fun."

Lee fielded a call from Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski last week.

"I got the call and I was like, 'oh my god,'" Lee said. "He was cool, laid-back. He doesn't overdo anything. He was great."

He also had a veritable who's who of college coaches at his games in Hampton: Krzyzewski, John Calipari, Bill Self, Sean Miller, Rick Barnes among others.

Described as a "dunking and blocking machine," Davis is a long, athletic, defensive-minded big man who can get out and run the floor. His play has helped California Supreme to an 8-1 record through the first two stops of the Nike-EYBL.

"I told my team, 'let's have as much fun as possible,'" Lee said. "Blocking is fun, defense is fun. You play defense, you get the outlet and do as much as possible."

Now sitting on top of a mound of scholarship offers, Lee says he's in no hurry and is going to sit back and enjoy the recruiting process.

"I'm just taking it all in," Lee said. "Just letting everything come to me."
