Lee is quick off the floor
Kentucky has landed three commitments from top-10 prospects in the last few weeks. Will the Wildcats receive a fourth commitment from another top-10 prospect when Marcus Lee announces his college choice Wednesday?
Lee, a 6-9, 215-pound power forward from Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley High School will announce at his school around 2:30 Eastern time.
Down to California and Kentucky, Lee has visited Cal several times due to his proximity to the campus. Kentucky hosted Lee last weekend for Midnight Madness festivities. Lee was scheduled to visit California this weekend.
The Bears have a strong pull on Lee because the campus is close to home. Kentucky, however, is thought to have surged to the lead in Lee's recruitment after the strong impression Kentucky made during his visit.
Ranked the No. 9 prospect by 247Sports, Lee has a No. 16 247Composite ranking.
Lee is a long and fluid athlete with an instinct for blocking shots and the ability to attack the basket off the dribble and pass on the move.
