Junior Forward Has Early Offer From Auburn

A report is featured on class of 2014 basketball prospect William Lee, who participated in Tony Barbee's Auburn basketball camp.

Plantersville, Ala.--A Class of 2014 prospect who is attracting attention from Southeastern Conference basketball programs was one of the standouts at Auburn's one-day camp for prospects.

William Lee, who stands six-foot-eight and weighs 185 pounds, showed he is effective scoring around the basket, blocking shots and pulling in rebounds. He also runs the floor well.

"I thought I did pretty good at the camp," said Lee, who will be a junior at Dallas County High School for the 2012-2013 season.

He broke into his high school team's starting lineup as a freshman, playing on a squad with Keymiya Harrell, who was a two-sport star at Dallas County High.

Harrell signed in 2011 to played football at Auburn and will line up at defensive end for Coach Gene Chizik's Tigers this fall. Lee notes that he and Harrell are friends.

The prospect said he averaged 16 points, 16 rebounds and just under six rebounds per game as a sophomore for Dallas County. He noted that he is working on becoming a more complete player for his junior season.

"I am trying to get better at ball-handling and my jump shot," he said, noting that he wants to become comfortable playing at the small forward spot in addition to his usual positions of power forward and center.

Asked what he does best on a basketball court at this stage of his development, Lee said. "Defense is the best part of my game."

Before he arrived at the Auburn camp, the prospect already had a scholarship offer from Auburn. "Alabama and Georgia have also offered," he said, noting that he is also hearing from other colleges.
