Desmond Lee, of New Mexico Junior College, saw some of his high major interest turn into offers last week. Illinois, Baylor and N.C. State all offered Lee last week after watching him multiple times over the last month. When I talked to Lee last he said he didn’t have any favorites yet and would make his decision after the season.
Lee (6-4/195) is averaging 21.9 points per game, which is good for fifth in the country in scoring. Lee is shooting 46% from the field and averaging 5.1 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He has a great frame and very fluid game. He should transition well to the next level. Here is a look at his recruitment:
Offers: Baylor, NC State, Illinois, Miami (FL), Auburn, Arkansas, Creighton, Univ. of Central Florida and UNLV.
Interest: Washington, Butler, Georgia and Washington State.
