Having cut his list to seven schools, Marcus Lee is now setting his visits.
The 6-foot-10 forward from Antioch (Calif) Deer Valley will trip to UCLA unofficially Saturday and then to Cal Sept. 1, his brother, Brian, told SNY.tv.
Lee is also considering Duke, Kentucky, Louisville, Indiana and Kansas.
For this piece on SheridanHoops.com, I ranked Lee as the No. 3 American prospect at the Nike Global Challenge.
”Best interior player here,” one NBA scout told SNY.tv at the event. “Great feel for the game. Needs to get stronger. I’d like to see him be a little more assertive from 15 feet, take that jump shot. He definitely changes everything around the rim. Great passer, great feel.”
