The 6-foot-2, 183-pound junior point guard got a chance to run the team and show college coaches what he was capable of – and it paid off.
``When Jeremiah left, I had to step in and be the point guard," Kee said. "Coach (Tom) Topping gave me a bigger role and helped give me confidence."
He said that Virginia Tech (offer), Wake Forest, Illinois and Michigan State are his early leaders.
``He's very good with the ball in his hands," St. Thomas Aquinas coach Steve Strand said. "He can really score – whether it's shooting or getting to the basket."
``He just needs to get a little stronger," added Strand. "His quickness is good, not great. But he's athletic enough to defend. Offensively, he's as good as it gets with the ball."
The 17-year-old Kee played shooting guard a year ago because of a senior point guard, but he'll have the ball in his hands the majority of his final two seasons at St. Thomas Aquinas.
``I didn't play that well last year as a sophomore," said Kee, who averaged 13 points and six assists a year ago. "But the summer really gave me a lot more confidence. I just felt like I wasn't playing my game last year."
