"I had surgery (Wednesday) to repair two ligaments in my shoulder that were torn," said the still tired-sounding youngster. "It was done by lazer scope and lasted from about 10:30 to 2:15."

Lee expects to be as good as new in a few months.

"I'm going to have to wear a brace, which is really a sling, for a month then rehab for three months," said Lee. "I''m still in the hospital, but I will get out Friday."

It appears the injured shoulder and subsequent surgery has had no effect on his recruitment.

"(Mississippi State assistant) Coach (J.B.) Grimes called me this morning a little after 8 to talk to me," said the Mississippi State commitment.

MSU has also set up the first in-home visit with Lee.

"Coach Grimes and (MSU head) Coach (Sylvester) Croom will be visiting me on November 26th," said Lee.

Although still a solid commitment to MSU, Lee, due to his mother's wishes, will officially visit several schools in addition to MSU.

"I know for sure that I'm going to Mississippi State, but my mother wants me to visit other schools," said Lee, who receives weekly calls from all the schools that he's considering visiting or scheduled visits with. "I'm visiting Alabama on December 1st, Tennessee on January 12th, Mississippi State on January 19th and South Carolina on January 26th. There is a competition between Miami and Southern Miss for the final visit."
