National Top 50 Wide Receiver Chooses Big 12

A day after telling Scout.com who was leading for his services, Jonathan Lee decided to go ahead and make his commitment to that leader.

"I am committed to Baylor. I am 100% committed," Jonathan Lee told BearsIllustrated.com early this morning. Lee, a 3 star recruit and a national top 50 wide receiver out of Allen High School, in Allen, Texas, gives Baylor it's sixth commitment of the 2011 class.

In an interview with Scout.com's Allen Wallace yesterday, Lee said "I really like it at Baylor. I got to meet all of the coaches and see them practice. I was impressed with how intense it was. They all go full speed. Nobody was slacking off."

There's no question what drew Lee to Baylor - the Baylor coaching staff who Lee said was recruiting him the hardest along with Iowa. Lee also held offers from Arkansas, Nebraska, Purdue, Minnesota, SMU, Tulsa and a few other schools.

But concerning Baylor, Lee said "I just feel closer to them right now. They're always interested to get to know me and I feel like they really care about me and ask about my family too. I feel very comfortable with them."

Lee, who previously attended the Bears Junior Day, plans to attend Baylor's football camp on June 3 this summer, and does not intend to participate in any other camps.

Lee had 59 catches for 1,013 yards and 16 touchdowns his junior year in high school. He says he can bench 255-pounds, squat 325 pounds and has a 31-inch vertical jump.

At Baylor, Lee is looking into the criminal justice program and reports a 3.2 core GPA and 850 SAT. He also took the ACT on April 10 and is still waiting on the results.
