Kevin Keatts has been in recent contact with Ray Lee, and the Louisville assistant told the 2012 point guard from Detroit that the Cardinals will watch him closely during the July evaluation period.

Lee, a 6-3, 170-pound guard who will attend Huntington (WV) Prep in the fall, holds several scholarship offers and will be evaluated by elite programs like Louisville, Texas and West Virginia next month. Sunday, Lee, a three-star prospect, plans to visit Louisville.

"I'm visiting Louisville on Sunday," Lee said. "I've been talking to Coach Keatts and he was telling me how I fit what they're looking for as a bigger guard who is athletic and can get others involved. I always hear good things about Louisville, so I'm going to visit."

Lee said Louisville initiated contact with him to express interest last week.

"[Coach Keatts] didn't mention an offer but he said they would watch me during July," said Lee. "He talked about Rodney Purvis de-committing and they were looking for another guard. At times, I've heard people say that I play like him. I'm interested in Louisville. I watch them a lot. I like how they play, they are tough."

Lee has offers from several schools, including Iowa, Xavier, UCF, Detroit, Dayton, Central Michigan, Iowa State and Baylor. He recently visited Georgia, and hopes to visit Tennessee, Marquette and Iowa State before July.

"I hear a whole lot from Texas, Tennessee, UCF, Xavier, Marquette, West Virginia, Clemson, Providence and Iowa," Lee said. "I took a visit to Georgia two weeks ago. I liked that school a whole lot. I like the facilities, the conference, the warm weather. It seems like they get a lot of support, so I like that too. I really like Texas, UCF, Georgia, Tennessee, and I like Louisville, too. I'm planning to take all my visits before I make a decision."
