"I'm the rare bird," said Ziemba, from Rogers High School. "I don't have any favorites. I haven't been to enough schools or seen enough places to have any idea of where I would like to go. It's too early."
He has been to campuses like Notre Dame, where he watched the Blue-Gold game, as well as Michigan, Oklahoma (camp) and Alabama (camp). The town of Rogers is about 15 miles north of the University of Arkansas and Ziemba has seen numerous Razorback spring practices. His father, Mike, attended Auburn but didn't play football past high school and has no leaning towards the Tigers.
Lee's parents have asked him to keep an open mind about the recruiting process. Although his college preferences are unknown, his talent is highly-regarded and some of the programs which have already offered include Nebraska, Mississippi, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, USC, Tennessee, LSU, Mississippi State, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Michigan and Auburn.
"I play the game mean," he said. "I have a real mean streak. I also move well and have good feet. I've been taught well and have pretty good technique. I need to become quicker and stronger in my upper body. My technique could always get better too."
Ziemba bench presses 325 pounds, squats 485, power cleans 315 and verticals 28".
He reports a 3.5 core GPA and a 22 ACT.
