Marqise Lee has four schools on his list right now that he's trying to choose from.

"I have Miami, Cal, USC, and Oregon. They're all about even right now."

Lee, 6-1 and 185 pounds, talked about each of the four schools that he's considering.

"USC, they have great coaching and they've been winning and it's right there in my back yard."

"Cal, if I wanna get a little away from my Mom it'd be good and it's got great academics and great coaches."

"Oregon, if I wanna go far but not that far and go to a team that's winning right now then that's good."

"Miami, it's just to get away, something new, get away from California and get to see a new town."

Lee says he's developed a good relationship with Miami assistant coach Micheal Barrow.

"I've been talking to Coach Barrow. I'm going out there the 21st. He's a great coach, stays on top of things. We talk a lot and I enjoy talking to him."

Lee, who says he'll be taking the Miami trip with five-star receiver George Farmer and a few other California players, has one other trip planned.

"I haven't thought about the fifth one. I'm thinking about USC on the 14th."

Lee, who has already officially visited Oregon, talked about what he's looking for in a school.

"Just that, I mean every school has good academics, can I stay in that town and enjoy myself for four years? That's what I'm looking for."
