JARRETT LEE, QB, 6'3, 200, 4.68, BRENHAM, TEXAS:
Jarrett Lee is one of those quarterbacks that is legendary locally, but statewide and on a national level teams are just now finding out about him. But trust me, he is talented enough that soon everybody will be talking about him.
Lee broke into the starting lineup at Brownwood High operating out of a one-back offense completing 98-of-168 passes for 1,700 yards and 18 touchdowns. Lee also ran some option football finishing with 250 yards and four touchdowns. He then transferred to Brenham as his father, Stephen, took a job on the staff as the wide receiver coach. Last season at Brenham, Lee completed 250-of-350 passes for 3,500 and 40 touchdowns while operating out of a spread offense.
"I guess you can say I matured a lot last year, but I like running the spread better," said Lee. "The spread offense is just more comfortable to me. We spread out and I work out of the pocket. I also run some boots and draws, and we run the lead-option a little bit. We throw a complete passing game and I can throw any pass that I need to. My favorite route to throw is the deep-out or the slant."
Lee can bench 245 pounds, squats 400 and has posted a 31-inch vertical jump. He also starts in hoops averaging six points per game. He has attended combines at Waco (Scout) TCU and Texas A&M, and has been to college camps at Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Houston.
Lee has been offered by Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, TCU, Oklahoma State, Houston, SMU, LSU, Nebraska, Arizona, Kansas State and Kansas to name a few.
"Through the first phase, before coaches could come in to see me, I thought I had it narrowed down," said Lee. "Now that the coaches can come in and see me it has become open again, because I am beginning to see that I have a lot more opportunities out there. I like Nebraska, LSU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Arizona at the moment, but that is a work in progress."
What are Lee's thoughts on Oklahoma?
"I went down to one of their junior days and I got a chance to see their facilities and talk to their coaches," said Lee. "They are supposed to come up and see me next week. I am definitely interested in Oklahoma."
What is Lee looking for in a college program?
"My education is a factor in that I want to see the kind of support group each college will have," said Lee. "Then, of course, I am just looking for the best overall program I can find. Depth chart is a factor, but I don't necessarily have to be the starter right off the bat. I would like to run in a spread offense and out of the shot-gun as much as possible."
Lee has qualified.
