Lee remains interested in Arizona

2013 center Marcus Lee is one of the most highly recruited players in the country. Read on for his thoughts on Arizona, recruiting in general, and more.

Not many players have seen their stock rise like 6-foot-9, 220-pound Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley center Marcus Lee.

Lee went from a player that was under-recruited to one that will be able to choose his future school.

Lee's stock has been positively impacted by his performance in the Nike EYBL, which he says has been dramatically different from what he is used to.

"It has been crazy," Lee said. "My high school league is way shorter and when you get here, everybody is 6-foot-9, big, and gets to the rim, so it is crazy."

As far as his recruiting attention goes, Lee admits that he never really listened to those around him that were telling him the offers would come.

"My brother told me it was coming but I never really listened," he said. "Then it actually came and I took a step back and realized what was happening. My first EYBL game I played well and I saw the coaches watching."

One of those schools was Arizona, which was also one of the first to offer him and has continued to recruit the four-star athlete.

"Arizona is all great people," Lee said. "They seem relaxed and when I talked to Sean Miller he was not really talking about basketball. We talked about my family and how they worked and were a family and I really liked it."

While Lee talks to each school recruiting him, he has a good idea of how he is going to approach each conversation.

"I am looking for their voice and how they talk to me, approach me and communicate with me," he said. "I think I can tell a lot from that."
