Lee Decides on Cal

California has dipped into Dallas (Tex.) Skyline a consecutive year to land a cornerback. Adrian Lee took two official visits last month, but he has cancelled the remainder of his trips after committing to Golden Bears on Thursday…

Adrian Lee (6-0, 190) will follow former teammate Steve Williams to California.

The current Golden Bear cornerback was Lee's host on his official visit to Berkeley on Dec. 11-13. Unlike Williams, Lee isn't garnering the same four-star accolades. Nonetheless, he has amassed over 10 offers despite starting only one season at Dallas Skyline.

After discussing his recruitment over with his parents and high school, Lee decided to end the process on Thursday night.

"I saw that [Cal] had called me three times," said Lee. "I called them back, then I committed because I had already talked to my parents. I had talked to my coach and he thought [Cal] was a good decision.

"I talked to Steve [Williams] a little bit. He told me it was a good place. On my visit, we were just talking about [Cal]."

After his official visit to Cal, he took one to Minnesota the following week. But he will not take any more visits canceling schedules trips to Utah this weekend and Wisconsin next weekend.

In the end, two things stood out about the Bears.

"I like the academics of Cal and when I was on the visit I saw the depth chart and I have a good shot to play early," said Lee.

As the 2009 season wore on, the Bear secondary became more of a concern. And with three senior starters departing, including All-American cornerback Syd'Quan Thompson, there will be opportunities for Lee.

"I really didn't get to see [Thompson] play much," said Lee. "I saw him practice [on my visit] and I watched the bowl game. He's good and filling shoes like that is hard and puts some pressure on me."

Cal linebacker coach Kenwick Thompson is Lee's main recruiter and he says he built a good relationship with the "well-known" coach.

Lee reports a 3.0 GPA. He scored a 16 on the ACT. But he plans to take the SAT.
