Lee Seeking Terps Offer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Thomas Stone (Waldorf, Md.) cornerback Trey Lee holds an Army offer but said the Terps are one of the teams in touch with him.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- Thomas Stone (Waldorf, Md.) cornerback Juwuan Briscoe is a prime-time recruit committed to Clemson, but evidently the Southern Maryland school has another defensive back who is quite a player as well. Cornerback Trey Lee, a 5-foot-10, 185-pounder, just holds one offer from Army and has several other regional programs keeping tabs on him.

"The Army offer was definitely big for me. It's a very interesting option and something I'll have to look more into," said Lee, who was just at Maryland's camp June 1. "It's a big commitment to go to a school like Army, so it's something I'll have to talk over with my family and go from there. It's hard to say no to it; I'm thinking about it a lot and all the benefits of it.

"But I also am very close to some other offers. Old Dominion is very close, and Richmond said they'll offer as well. I was in touch with Temple, but they haven't said anything in awhile."

While the aforementioned programs are of the lower Division I and I-AA variety, there is one FBS school that reached out not too long ago. Lee said Maryland assistant Mike Locksley stopped by Stone during the evaluation period and recently he came in contact with UMD defensive coordinator Brian Stewart.

"Coach Locksley just started talking to me on Facebook a little bit, and he did come by my school. I haven't really gotten a chance to get to know him yet, but he wanted me to come to camp and show what I could do," Lee said.

Lee said he ran well at the camp and showed out during drills. He's hoping it was enough to draw a closer look from the Maryland staff.

"I was really happy with my performance," he said. "I talked to Coach Stewart on the phone two or three weeks before and he ... didn't remember me [at the camp], but after I introduced myself he told me that he had noticed me. He told me to keep in touch and he sounded like he was impressed. He told me to hit him up on Twitter and send him my film and all that.

"But I'm thinking [the Maryland staff] is going to have to evaluate senior film before they talk about an offer. I'm not sure exactly where I stand with them."

And if the Terps eventually offered later during the process?

"If Maryland were to offer I'd probably commit, honestly," Lee said. "I've been up there a few times and I really like the school. I know they had some struggles, but I think I can really help them, and I feel like I can fit into their defensive backfield.

"I have a lockdown mentality, and if you watch my film you can see I can definitely hit, so I think I can fit in there. I bring an edge to the defense. Unfortunately nobody throws in my conference, so you can't see my coverage too much, but that's why I'm going to these camps to prove that I can cover."

Lee also plans to attend camps at Pitt and Rutgers. There are others on the radar as well, and it's likely Lee will visit multiple campuses this summer.

Unless he secures a camp offer from an FBS program, Lee will probably wait until his senior film is evaluated before coming to any kind of decision. He said he is open to checking out any school that shows serious interest or does indeed extend a scholarship.
