Lee Happy with Huskers

The Highlands Ranch Colo.) Valor Christian four-star cornerback, Eric Lee, is excited about his future at Nebraska...

Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian cornerback Eric Lee didn't need to wait long to make his decision where he wanted to go.

Lee committed to Nebraska last month, even before the class of 2014 had their Signing Day.

Now his goal for the next year is to help the Huskers' recruiting efforts and continue to put prep football in Colorado on the map.

A two-year starter at cornerback for Valor's past two state champion squads and the top prospect in Colorado in the 2015 class, Lee is one of two players from the state headed to play at Nebraska, joining Avery Anderson, who he teamed up with last weekend at the Pylon 7v7 for Weapon X.

"I enjoyed it a lot," said Lee. "One of the big things is putting Colorado on the map. We're not really known for our football so we're trying to do that. From some of the teams we beat, they asked where we were from and we said Colorado and they were surprised. So that's what we're trying to do."

Lee and Anderson were both wearing Husker gear all weekend and speaking of the Huskers to anyone who would listen.

The four-star said everything about Nebraska felt right to him.

"I felt like an in-state kid there, just from when I lived there," said Lee. "Two of my best friends are there, D.J. Foster, who just signed there and Trey Foster, who's already there. That and the early enrollee process and having a lot of family friends there made it the place."

Lee was also happy to hear the recent news of Bo Pelini's extension with the Huskers.

"I was extremely happy and I know that for me, that was a big concern that he would leave," said Lee. "Vanderbilt and Penn State were two other schools I was considering and their coaches left, so I was fearing that Coach Pelini would leave. So I was relieved when he said he was staying for a long time."

Lee said he plans to graduate early and will likely take his official visit during Valor Christian's bye week in the fall.

For now, he's set to be back in Lincoln next month.

"I'll be there April 12 for the Spring Game," said Lee.
