It seemed a forgone conclusion that Pershing, led by senior guard Keith Appling and a great supporting cast would be challenged only by Southeastern, led by star guard Brandan Kearney and forward Percy Gibson both who have scholarship offers from Michigan State.
But now, with Lee, a 2012 prospect heading moving to Cass, the Technicians become a league power.
Joining Lee at the downtown Detroit school in the shadow of Comerica Park and Ford Field will be Marlin Mason, another transfer from Farmington Hills Harrison.
Mason, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard averaged 10 points and eight rebounds per game. Two other transfers, Markus Franklin, a 5-foot-10 sophomore point guard and 6-foot Mason Cowens both move over from Finney.
They join returning clutch performer Chris George, a 6-foot-1 forward, 6-foot-7 senior forward Lanier Brown, 6-foot-6 Daniel Bellamy and senior forward Ken Bradshaw to give the Technicians a deep, talent pool that will challenge both Pershing and Southeastern from the conference championship.
