Vanderbilt got off to a good start in 2017 on Monday with a commitment from Scout's 92nd ranked prospect.
Saben Lee, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound four-star prospect from Tempe (Ariz.) Corona del Sol, chose Vandy following an official visit.
"I felt like overall I had a great relationship with the whole coaching staff," Lee told Scout. "While I was there they all really believed in me and had a great plan for me and my basketball career."
Lee's relationship with the coaching staff played a big role in his decision.
"Coach (Bryce) Drew, given what he was best at and his skill set, playing hard and just what he got really good at and into the league would really help my game a lot," Lee said. "There are aspects he can help me with and my development.
"Coach (Jake) Diebler was very detailed and their player development would help me in a lot of different aspects. Also I liked the community and the campus feel. I really liked that. It’s a good fit. I just really liked the coaching staff. Their whole coaching staff was very straight forward."
Lee is an athletic point guard with a terrific frame with long arms. He does a nice job balancing scoring and creating and has made progress as a ball handler and shooter.
Given Lee's young age for the class, athleticism and upside, he's a big pickup for Vanderbilt.
