Lee taking his time

Center Marcus Lee is taking his time as schools throughout the country recruit him. Read on to see where Arizona stands, if he will visit, and more.

As Marcus Lee goes through the summer, he realizes that schools throughout the country are watching his every play.

The 6-foot-9, 220-pound Deer Valley (Calif.) Antioch center is at a point where he basically has his choice of schools and Arizona is working to make sure that Lee considers it as one of those choices.

"I am just being patient and listening to what each school has to say," Lee said. "I am in no rush and I just want to see what every school has to offer before I move forward in my recruitment."

Lee is looking at all of his options and although he does not have any visit dates scheduled, he has a good idea of the schools he wants to see first.

"I was supposed to visit Texas and was not able to, so I hope I can get back there and then visit Texas A&M also," Lee said. "I also want to visit North Carolina and Duke as well.

"Duke is one school that I am really impressed with. They have been recruiting me hard and the coaching staff is impressive, so I want to check it out."

In addition, Arizona wants to try and get Lee on campus, which is something that he seems to be open to.

"Arizona is recruiting me pretty hard," he said. "They just let me know how much they want me and how I would fit in.

"I know that they want me to come down there for a visit and there is a chance I will do that before the summer ends. I am not sure yet though, so we will see."

Lee plans to cut his list down by the end of the summer in order to focus on a few schools and knows what he will take into consideration in order to do that.

"There is a good chance that I will cut some schools and try to focus on things a little bit more," he said. "Maybe cut it down to a few that I know I definitely want to visit and maybe like more than others.

"I want to go to a school where I will be comfortable and will be playing for a coaching staff that can and wants to get me better."
