Lee ready to see Nebraska, again

It's a whole new set of circumstances for Gerard Lee. Lee out of high school was one of the premier DTs in the nation. He took trips everywhere including one to Nebraska. Now he finds himself at Scottsdale (Ariz.) C.C. and being recruited by some of the same teams.

Gerard Lee from Scottsdale (Ariz.) C.C. took in a trip to Oregon State this weekend. The 6-foot-3 and 280 pound defensive tackle will be back on the road next weekend to see Lincoln, Nebr.

"I'm going to Nebraska next week," Lee said. "The visit is going good with Oregon State. I am going to take all of my trips and then I will know which school I am going to go to."

Nebraska came in on Lee late, but they are not the only ones. Everyone is coming in on Lee late, but since his name has popped back up again on the recruiting radar he is becoming a very popular man very late in the game.

"I got offered by Nebraska about three weeks ago. The late offer doesn't bother me. My name didn't get out until late. A lot of people are just offering me. Minnesota just offered me too a couple of weeks ago."

Lee knows a little about Nebraska. Coach John Blake has been recruiting him, but Lee already knows a little bit about what to expect when it comes to taking an official to Nebraska.

"Coach Blake came down to my mom's house in Houston about two weeks ago. Out of high school they recruited me and I took an official visit then too. I signed with Oklahoma out of high school. I was from George Washington Carver in New Orleans. I graduated in 2003."

"When I left the school that I attended out of high school I just went to Grambling to get into a school. Then after I left there after a semester a friend of mine told me about Scottsdale."

Lee hasn't been through the process in the straightest of lines. It's been a lot of work in fact. Lee just knows that when the ride ends in a division one school it will all be worth it. "It's been a ride, but it's all going to pay off. I just need to get back into it and show people what I got."
