Lee is very tight with fellow Nebraska commitment Avery Anderson. Anderson and Lee committed to Nebraska on junior day back in February -- with Anderson flipping from Arizona State -- giving Nebraska a pair of top-shelf defensive backs in the class.
While Lee is from Highlands Ranch (Colo.) Valor Christian and Anderson is from Colorado Springs (Colo.) Pine Creek the two are still close enough geographically to see each other on occasion. The two will be meeting with Coach Warren in just about an hour.
"Eric and I are literally like brothers," Anderson said. "We have both met with Coach Warren before and we have also done it individually."
Anderson says that there are definitely some things that are on his mind that he would like to get some answers to. But, most of all, he says that it will just be good to get some time with Coach.
"I am really excited to see Coach. I am trying to figure out what is going on right now. I just want to see what everyone is thinking."
Both Anderson and Lee are set to enroll at Nebraska in January. They have also signed their financial paperwork with the university -- which is still non-binding -- which gives them some "special privileges" as verbal commitments like seeing the playbook and the ability to text.
"I have no idea about those rules if the head coach is fired," Anderson said. "We really just stopped that when that happened because we didn't want to get in trouble or get the school in trouble. We have been messaging over social media still though."

Lee and Anderson met with Warren for nearly an hour and got a chance to ask a lot of questions to the current Nebraska secondary coach.
"There wasn't a lot when it came to specifics he could tells us," Lee told Big Red Report's Bryan Munson. "He didn't have a timetable on a decision. He couldn't tell us who the next coach might be, the meeting wasn't really about that."
Lee did indicated to Big Red Report based off his conversation, he is expecting an announcement of a new coach by next Monday, but did admit that was purely speculation."Oh yes sir, that's still the plan," when asked if he was planning on enrolling next month. "We are still planning on going to Lincoln, filling out all the paperwork we need to, and being Cornhuskers."
We also asked Lee if Warren was able to shed light into his ability to hit the road recruiting, while other assistant coaches stayed home.
"We were really focused on the topics that were affecting us and not his job tonight," said Lee. "He told us that he hoped he was going to be on the next staff, but wasn't for sure. He didn't know once again who the next coach was going to be and didn't know if that next coach would bring an entire staff with him. He said all that stuff is still a mystery."
Big Red Report will continue to monitor the situation regarding Lee and Avery, who obviously as early enrollees are getting down to crunch time.
