Lee said, "I got a lot to live up to since he was a legend at Xavier. I have to raise my level to be higher than his."
Lee has high expectations for Lakota East this year. With Princeton's Orlando Williams and Middletown's Allen Roberts graduating and off to Miami University next year, Lee believes it is East's time to dominate the Greater Miami Conference (GMC). He told RedHawk Insider, "Lakota East is going to win the championship this year. That's a guarantee! "
As a sophomore for East this past season, his per game averages were 5.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.1 steals, 1.6 assists, and 2.7 turnovers per game. Lee shot 50.9% from the field, 37.5% from behind the arc, and 41.9% from the line. Despite playing for one of the largest schools in Ohio, Lee was able to start eight games and average 16.7 minutes per game. His season high was 17 points versus Cincinnati Moeller in the Ohio state tournament.
Lee has begun to make some noise with his play over the past year. As a result, some of the top mid-major programs have taken notice, including a school from the MAC.
Lee said, "I have only got two phone calls from Miami-OH and Old Dominion."
Recently Lee attended the Elite Camps at Xavier and Miami. After attending Miami's Elite Camp last month, Lee said about his experience, "It went really well. Miami is probably my first choice right now. I really liked the place. I like the campus. I like the coaches."
Lee described his play as follows:
"I am a guard. I can shoot outside, but I like to drive most of the time. I am supposed to be a point guard, but I play guard/forward for my high school and AAU team. I can dribble the ball and shoot. I pretty much can do it all."
In addition to the 1 and 2, Lee said he can even play the 3 or 4 spots.
Lee said he plays similar to Kevin Durant. Lee explained the resemblance, "I am tall and athletic and can play all the positions. I can shoot and I can drive. I am kind of skinny like him too." Lee added, "I have a lot of ability. I can play all the positions and I would be an asset to any team anywhere in the country."
Lee is not just a basketball player. He is also star football player for Lakota East and may play football in college.
On a personal level, Lee likes "chill" with his teammates who he says are his best friends. He explained, "I chill with them. We go to the pool sometimes, hang out at the movies, and just chill. I just chill a lot. If I am not chilling I am just at home."
