Ray Lee Talks Michigan State Visit

It will likely be at least another year before Dearborn Heights Robichaud sophomore guard Ray Lee gets a Michigan State offer, but judging by the love he continually receives from the Spartans family, he will receive one.

EAST LANSING - It will likely be at least another year before Dearborn Heights Robichaud sophomore guard Ray Lee gets a Michigan State offer, but judging by the love he continually receives from the Spartans family, he will receive one.

Lee was part of an elite group of basketball players, mostly for the class of 2011, who visited Michigan State for the MSU vs. Montana State game.

"That was a fun visit," said Lee. "Everything was nice, the food was good, all the players were real open and stuff."

Lee talked about the players who visited along with him. "Well, there was Brandan Kearney, Percy Gibson, Patrick Lucas-Perry, Tommie McCune and Trey Zeigler and that's about it."

Lee said the players really just got a chance to talk to each other, interact and talk about the recruiting process while vibing with the coaching staff.

"We got a chance to shoot a little and I played a little two-man game with Brandan but basically, it was a (chance to kick it around and get to know each other) and meet and talk to the coaches. They're good coaches, they're real nice and very open with you," he said.

"It was more like a little party."

Lee talked about the love he received from the Spartan fans also as he took the walk from the Breslin over to Spartan Stadium.

"It was close, other visits I've been on the walk was kind of long. The Spartan players got a lot of love from the fans, the recruits, you start to come in and you hear "go green" and the fans really want you there. It feels good to get the recognition from being a basketball player, it makes you feel special."

Lee says he likes Michigan State, but he will wait until his senior season, two years away, before he makes any decision.

What's next for this talented sophomore?

"I'm going to make it up to Michigan this weekend and I'm looking forward to getting to Syracuse and Florida."

Lee clearly is a priority for the class of 2012, and while that's a ways away, the love for him is clearly evident from the MSU staff.
