Report: Kentucky will get verbal commitment from Top 15 recruit Marcus Lee
Kentucky basketball has reportedly secured another Top 15 recruit into the fold for the Class of 2013.
Marcus Lee, a 6-9, 205 pound forward will commit to the Wildcats on Wednesday, joining three other Top 15 recruits, reports KentuckySportsradio.com. Lee is rated as a five-star recruit and the 15th overall prospect, according to Rivals.com.
Lee, who averaged 13.9 points, 14 rebounds and 9 blocks a game at Deer Valley High School in Antioch, Calif. last season, was also considering the California Golden Bears. He cancelled his visit with the Bears and instead visited Kentucky last weekend, attending the program’s “Big Blue Madness”. Lee also tweeted a photo of the practice facility and wrote, “No filter can make it any better. It’s just perfect.”
The defending national champions have already received commitments from top prospects guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison and James Young.
