"I'm going to Alabama this weekend. I have Mississippi State next weekend. Then, I'm visiting Miami the weekend of the 26th," said Lee, who previously visited Southern Miss.

With the change in coaching staffs at Alabama, Lee wasn't exactly sure when or even if he would visit them. But things changed January 3rd.

"Alabama has really come on strong. That actually started January 3rd, then on the weekend it kind of got stronger," said Lee. "I talked to (Alabama head) Coach (Nick) Saban on the 3rd. Then, he called me back on Sunday, the beginning of the next week. The reason why he called was because they were still looking at all the prospects' highlight tapes and he said I was the only prospect he called that day because he was so amazed with my tape."

Although he's looking forward to the visit, Mississippi State still looks to be the place he will wind up.

"I'm excited about the visit, but I know with every visit I'm going to have a great visit, but right now I'm still 100% solid with Mississippi State," said Lee. "They continue to fight for me and call me."

While Mississippi State continues to fight to keep Lee, Lee's also got a bit of a personal fight going on as well ... with his shoulder rehab. And he's definitely winning that battle.

"My therapist is real proud of me. I'm two weeks ahead of schedule," said Lee, who showed his toughness by playing five complete games with the shoulder injury. "I still go three days a week (to Water Valley). The first thing I do is run on a treadmill to warm up. After that, I head to the weightroom. I'm doing all the upper body work. I should be fine by mid-February or early March according to (therapist) Jennifer."

By then, not only will he have a healthy shoulder, but he'll also know where he's going to be playing his football for the next four seasons. Will it be at his long-time favorite Mississippi State or will another school pull a coup and land this extremely talented youngster?
