Lee commits to Cats
Four-star Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley center Marcus Lee announced Wednesday that he will sign with Kentucky, giving the Wildcats yet another highly-regarded prospect in the Class of 2013.
"Lee is a tremendous pick up for Kentucky," said Scout national basketball analyst Evan Daniels. "He can really help them on the interior.
"Lee is a very good athlete that runs the floor well and can impact the game on the defensive end and by way of grabbing rebounds."
The 6-foot-9 Lee, who visited Lexington last weekend for "Big Blue Madness," picked the UK over California. He joins five-star Texas twin guards Andrew Harrison and Aaron Harrison, five-star Michigan swingman James Young and four-star Kentucky forward Derek Willis in a class that many analysts suggest could become the best of all time. All of those players were on campus with Lee for Madness.
Lee is currently ranked the No. 2 center and No. 38 prospect overall by Scout. The Harrison twins are rated No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. Young comes in at No. 9. Kentucky coach John Calipari also continues to pursue five-star forwards Julius Randle (No.4), Aaron Gordon (No. 5) and Andrew Wiggins (No. 1 for 2014), who is considering reclassifying to the senior class.
