Bobby Visits Daytona Beach QB Standout

<b>Xavier, Lee</b>, who is the front runner to win the state of Florida's Mr. Football award, just returned from his second official visit (Ohio State). The No 8 ranked quarterback will Florida State in January. He's also talking with the University of Texas about a possible visit.

"My visit to Ohio State went very well," Lee, who broke the state record for touchdown passes for a career with 94," said. "I ate a lot and hung out with the players. I also got to watch one of their practices. I would rate my visit an 81/2 on a scale from one to ten."

Lee has already officially visited Auburn. His next official visit will be with Florida State on (1/9) and possibly one more trip with Texas.

The Longhorns, who didn't sign a quarterback last season, might lose junior quarterback Chance Mock to a transfer. Texas has been trying to change the minds of Texas A&M commit Stephan McGee and Oklahoma State commit Bobby Reid. Getting one of those players to change their mind might be an uphill task. Therefore, Texas has decided to pick up phone and to see if Lee has any interest in taking a visit to Austin.

"I'm thinking about taking a visit to Texas," Lee said. "One of their coaches called me on Thursday and told me that another quarterback that they were pursuing backed out. I can't remember the coach's name. I'm going to see how it goes but a trip out there wouldn't be bad."

Last week the Sunshine Sports Network Sophomore and Junior Player of the Year had in in-home visit with the Florida State. How did that go?

"It went well," he said. "Coach (Bobby) Bowden, Coach Dickey and Coach Sexton all came. We talked about everything and my mother likes them a lot."

On January 3rd in San Antonio (TX), Lee will represent the East squad in the Army All-American All- Star game which will be broadcasted on NBC.

As a senior, the Daytona Beach Seabreeze quarterback passes for a little over 3,000 yards and 37 touchdowns. He also rushed for over 500 yards.

Lee, who recently scored a 17 on the ACT test, is on track to qualify academically.

His brother (Anthony Kelly) originally signed letter of intent with Florida State last February but he came up short on qualifying. Right now the former Daytona Seabreeze linebacker is enjoying a strong freshman season in the junior college ranks.

"He has 10 sacks on the season," Lee said. "Anthony plans on making it back to Florida State by next December."
