  • Marcus Lee Cuts List to Three

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    Marcus Lee, the highly sought after forward from Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley, has cut his list to three schools, Kentucky, Louisville and Cal, his brother, Brian, confirmed to SNY.tv Tuesday night.

    “Yes, so he can focus on school and being in the gym,” Brian said of the cut.

    The news was first reported by Jason McCleary on Twitter.

    The 6-foot-9 Lee had previously considered Indiana, Duke, UCLA and Kansas. He will not take any of his planned visits to those schools.

    Lee recently visited Cal unofficially and Louisville officially and will head to Kentucky for Big Blue Madness Oct. 12. He also has a home visit Sunday with Kentucky coach John Calipari.

    California recently landed a commitment from Jabari Bird, a fellow Californian who said he’s working on bringing Lee and Aaron Gordon with him to Cal.

    “I’m definitely trying to get them now,” he told the Mercury News after taking a weekend visit to Cal with both of them. “Hopefully, they can be Cal Bears with me. For the most part, both Marcus and Aaron liked the visit a lot. I’m just trying to build on that with them, so I can convince them to come to school with me.”
