Lee Getting Closer to Decision

The summer AAU season didn't go as well as swingman Tre Lee would have liked after switching programs in hopes of getting more exposure and garnering more scholarship offers.

"It was less than what I expected," Lee said on Monday. "Playing on the Boo Williams team, I didn't play as much. Some people knew about me, but I didn't get much exposure."

Back in January, the 6-foot-3, 195-pound shooting guard from Bethel High School in Hampton Roads, Va., said he had offers from Saint Louis and Old Dominion and interest from several Colonial Athletic Association and Atlantic 10 Conference schools. But that has changed.

"Right now it's just looking like Saint Louis," Lee said. "I've got a couple new schools on deck, but I haven't kept in contact with them."

Lee also mentioned American University, Richmond and UC-Davis as schools that were recruiting him. He said he's going to try to take visits to SLU, Richmond and UC-Davis.

The Virginia native's recruitment with Saint Louis has become a little more complicated since Lee attended SLU's Elite Camp back in June. His connection to the school was that one of his assistant coaches at Bethel High School was an assistant at Wright State under former head coach Paul Biancardi, who was an assistant at SLU.

Biancardi has since left to take a job with ESPN, and Lee hasn't had much contact with the Billikens or SLU head coach Rick Majerus.

"The times I saw coach Majerus, I couldn't really speak to him," Lee said of seeing the Billikens coach this summer on the AAU circuit. "I talked to him at the Elite Camp."

That leaves Lee kind of in wait-and-see mode, trying to figure out his next move and planning his college destination. Plenty of schools know about the talented swingman, but he's got to take some looks at some campuses and figure everything out in the next few months.

"I'm going to try to make a decision," Lee said. "I should know after my fifth visit. I'm not going to waste any time. I should know by the first signing day."
