Mississippi DE Names Top Two

The secret is out on Lafayette (Oxford, MS) defensive lineman, Markeno Lee. The 6'5, 260 pound defensive stalwart managed to fly beneath the radar for much of his high school career, however after recording 78 tackles and 14 sacks in his junior season, college coaches are beginning to take notice.

As a result, Markeno Lee has accumulated quite an impressive list of offers this summer.

"Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and South Carolina have offered me."

Lee, who bench presses nearly 350 pounds, already claims two favorites for his services.

"Alabama and South Carolina are my favorites."

The dominant lineman was asked to describe what he liked about each of the two schools atop his list.

Alabama -"I like Coach (Sparky) Woods. I think he's a good coach."

South Carolina -"I just like the atmosphere up there."

Despite Lee narrowing his list, Gamecock and Crimson Tide fans should not expect a decision from him anytime soon.

"I'm planning on taking my official visits, and I think I'll make one (a decision) by the end of the school year."

The Magnolia State star finished by stating two goals that he would like to accomplish in his upcoming senior season.

"I want to get about fifteen sacks this season and try to make it to state."
