Marcus Lee, one of the top forwards in the Class of 2013, has scheduled several visits to some big-time suitors.
With an unofficial set for UCLA today (Saturday), Lee has added official visits to Louisville (Sept. 8), Kentucky (Oct. 12 for Big Blue Madness) and Indiana (Oct. 20), his brother, Brian, told SNY.tv. Marcus will also visit Cal unofficially Sept. 1, as previously reported.
Lee will have an in-home visit with Kansas Oct. 6.
He is also considering Duke.
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.”
