Is Jarrett Lee planning any visits?

Anytime a high-profile prospect such as 4-star quarterback Jarrett Lee (6-2, 190, 4.7) makes an early commitment there is always that worry that he will take an official visit or two just to make sure he made the right decision.

Tiger Rag caught up with's No. 18 ranked signal caller in the land to see if there were any plans to visit any other schools and we got a point blank answer from the Brenham (Texas) native.


"Nope, I'm 100 percent a Tiger," Lee told Tiger Rag.


The Alabama game is going to be a big weekend for visitors and Lee will be one of them on campus for the big contest.


"I don't know when my official visit will be exactly, but my family and I are coming down for the game against Alabama," said Lee. "It's just a game between two big-time programs and I have a feeling the atmosphere is going to be great."


Lee said he did go to an LSU game last season, but that it was a day game.


"The game started around 11," he said. "I've been told that night games are even better. Even with that said, I was very impressed with the crowd and atmosphere during that game."


As a junior, Lee threw for 3,500 yards and 40 touchdowns in Brenham's spread offense.



This year, Brenham has a more balanced offense that is averaging 198 yards a game on the ground and 211 through the air. Lee has completed 103-of-173 passes for 1,412 yards with 20 scores and only four interceptions.


"We're 6-1 in district and if we win our game this Friday, we go to the state playoffs," said Lee.


LSU offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher stays in touch with the Lonestar product on a regular basis and the two spoke last week.


"I talked with coach Fisher last Wednesday and we just talked about how my season is going and stuff like that," Lee explained. "We talked about hunting, too. He said there are some spots in Louisiana that I'll maybe get to go to."


Some feared that the stiff competition for the quarterback position at LSU may have been a deterrent in the Jarrett Lee sweepstakes but he thinks that will give him an opportunity to learn the offense.


"I think that going in and them having guys like JaMarcus and Matt Flynn already there, I'll probably take a red-shirt and just learn the system," said Lee. "Hopefully if I just keep working hard and learning the system I'll get to be the starter soon."


While Lee had not made it to Baton Rouge for a game this season he has seen some of LSU's games on TV there are things he sees that he likes.


"I like the athletes and skilled receivers they have there," said Lee. "When you just watch JaMarcus and Flynn throw the ball and execute plays, you can just tell that they are being coached well and that coach Fisher is doing a good job of working with them. The scheme they run is wonderful, too."


Although it was hard for him to find fault with the LSU offense, he did look to the run game as an area needing improvement.


"The run game has to be there to help restore some of the balance to the offense," said Lee. "Other than that, I really like what I see."
