"Blessed to have an offer from Miami," said Michael Lee over the weekend.
Lee is a 2017 cornerback prospect from Landry-Walker High in New Orleans, an area the Hurricanes haven't successfully recruited since pulling Stan Dobard from there a few years ago.
At 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, Lee is coming off a strong sophomore season there. He was rarely thrown against and when he was, it didn't go well for opposing offenses. He shows ideal speed, hips, and pure cover skills on film despite not having ideal size to play the position at a high level.
Cal and Texas Tech were his first two Division 1 offers. Miami offered him over the weekend and then Missouri added its name to the mix shortly after the Canes came through with one.
It'll be hard to tell what Miami's chances will be until they get him on campus for a visit in some form. Typically Louisiana kids are difficult to pull away from LSU, which hasn't offered him yet. The Tigers are recruiting Lee, however.
The Hurricanes have eight commitments in the 2017 class right now but none of them play cornerback. Lee is definitely someone Miami fans will want to keep an eye on moving ahead this summer.
