At 6-foot-4 275 pounds Gerard Lee is the type of player that could come in and have an immediate impact at USF. The defensive tackle from Scottsdale Arizona says the four main teams pursuing him are Utah, USF, Oregon State, and Auburn.
"I took a visit to Utah last week but USF is still number one on my list."
Lee's visit to Utah was enjoyable and he especially liked the academics and the support that goes along with it. He even said he didn't mind the cold weather.
"The weather in Florida and Utah is very different, but I'll play in any weather. I just might need a bigger jacket in Utah."
Lee says he ranks the visits to Utah and USF about even, but liked the academic support at Utah. He also says his decision is still not made and it looks like it will be down to Utah and USF. However, there is a catch. Lee wants to come in and play immediately, at USF he feels he would, but the Utah coaches told him they are only taking one JUCO defensive tackle. On the visit with Gerard was another JUCO tackle.
"If he commits then that means he has the starting spot and I won't want to go to Utah. They were trying to get us to commit, but I'm not ready. I don't know if the other kid did or not but if he did then Utah is probably out of it for me."
Lee possibly has two more visits. He will definitely visit Oregon State on January 13th and is scheduled to visit Auburn on January 21st. The Auburn visit may be in jeopardy because he's waiting to see if they are going to accept one of his math classes. If they do he will visit, if not he wouldn't be eligible for school there and wouldn't take the visit. If the Auburn visit does fall through he might take a visit to Nebraska, but it all depends on that math class.
