2019 4-star wide receiver Devonta Lee taking visits, talks recruiting

2019 four-star wide receiver Devonta Lee recaps his LSU and Florida State visits and talks schools standing out.

2019 four-star Amite (La.) wide receiver Devonta Lee made it out to LSU spring practices recently and got the red carpet treatment from Ed Orgeron on the visit. 

"I was at the team meeting with Coach O. He let me meet the players and I was talking with them and let me do the route combination, which I like," Lee said.

Lee keeps up with wide receivers coach Mickey Joseph when he goes to campus, but doesn't talk with really any college coaches outside of visits because he's a sophomore. LSU is a place that he can see himself stepping in and making waves right off the bat.

"They got a great academic school. It's a school I can play as a freshman and be an All-American at and break a lot of records and stuff like that," Lee said. 

Florida State has gotten two visits from Lee in the past month. He's impressed by what the Seminoles have shown so far.

"It's a nice school. I like it up there," Lee said. "They throw the ball. They have a great academic school. They teach you the fundamentals and have a great coaching staff. They got great mentors as well."

Head coach Jimbo Fisher, offensive coordinator Randy Sanders and wide receivers coach Lawrence Dawsey all talked with him on the visit and their relationship is building.

"We got a great relationship. They make sure I'm still remaining focused and they take care of me when I come," Lee said. 

In the summer, Lee plans to make a visit back to Florida State. The big wide receiver will be back at LSU for the Tigers' spring game on April 22. Notre Dame, Michigan and Ohio State will get visits this summer as well.

Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Michigan and Ohio State are among the schools standing out early right now. Lee plans to announce on National Signing Day in 2019.
