Lee Has Good In-State Visits

Currently in the midst of a good junior campaign, Lawrence Central (Ind.) linebacker Brandon Lee took two visits within his home state in recent weeks, one to Indiana and most recently to Notre Dame.

Brandon Lee is one of the top junior prospects in the Midwest, and the 6'3, 210-lb linebacker is making that distinction even more firm with his play so far this year. He is also taking time out to visit prospective schools, including Notre Dame, where he went on Saturday.

"The atmosphere was unexplainable," he said. "one of the biggest games I've ever been to. The crowd was pumped the whole time. It was a great experience."

After seeing the big Irish win over Michigan, Lee had a chance to talk to the coaches. He currently does not have an offer from them, but that was not discussed.

"I talked to Coach Elston, my recruiting coordinator for our area. I'm not too known for all the other coaches. I know the linebacker coach a little bit, but I don't know him too much. I'm mostly in with Coach Elston. We spoke before and after, but it was just casual, nothing with the recruiting process or about an offer, just how the game was, did I have a good time and things like that."

The week before, Lee visited Indiana, and despite a losing effort, he sees positives with the Hoosier program.

"It was a pretty good game. I mean, I understand they loss to Ball State and that's not the game they think they'll lose necessarily considering they're Big Ten and Ball State's a MAC team. The coaches are really trying to bring the team back in the Big Ten rankings and national rankings also, so I feel like they're working hard to get the name back on the map and return IU back to the place it was five years ago."

Lee holds additional offers from Purdue, Ball State, Iowa and Kentucky, but since September 1st, he has heard from a number of new programs from coast to coast.

"UCLA, Washington, Stanford sent me some mail, Alabama, Michigan State, Florida sent me some mail and NC State too. I can't name all of them, but those are a few of the big ones and I've talked with a couple coaches of those teams on Facebook."

Lee will keep taking visits and he believes a pair of Big Ten programs may be next.

"It's possible I'm going to Michigan State-Ohio State with Dominique Booth this weekend and that's a possibility. Next week I'm maybe going to Ohio State."
