Lee Knows his Five Officials

Sitting on over 30 scholarship offers with the season fast approaching, Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons wide receiver Trevon Lee knows what schools he wants to visit this fall.

Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons wide receiver Trevon Lee caught Wisconsin's attention early, receiving his offer in March. Since then Lee has totaled 34 scholarship offers. But the three-star recruit is in no rush to make a decision, especially with Lee catching an offer from Oregon in early August.

"I was really excited," Lee told Badger Nation. "Oregon is a big time school. Everybody knows about that school when they watch college football. I was excited, but also proud and humbled by the offer.

"I'm still deciding so I don't have a top list or anything. I'm trying to make the right decision so I'm not going to rush it. I will probably decide after I take my official visits, or when the time feels right for me to do so."

Although, Lee didn't mention a top list, he does already have his five official visits picked out – California, Duke, Stanford, Vanderbilt and most likely Oregon. Lee is visiting California September 12 but is still deciding on the dates for the other four schools.

The 6-1, 175-pound Lee failed to mention Wisconsin in his list of visits but he refuses to rule them out just yet. Lee mentioned wide receivers coach Chris Beatty among the other coaches he makes sure to keep in touch with every couple weeks.

"Wisconsin has been in the Rose Bowl for three years in a row," said Lee. "That shows me just how good the program really is. That team is up and coming. That's what excites me about their program."

Lee's had little time for visits since taking trips to Duke, N.C. State, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, VCU and Wake Forest during the summer.

"I only got to take those six visits around the second week of June," said Lee. "Since then I've been too busy with getting ready for my senior season. I have been researching all the other schools so I can make the right decision when it's time."

Wherever Lee chooses to play, his main focus is on academics. He not only wants to be a top wide receiver, but also wants to study pre-med.

"If I have the opportunity to play at the next level someday then I will take it, but the plan is to study pre-med and go to medical school, or maybe I can do both," laughed Lee.

Rated the No.67 wide receiver in the country by Fox Sports Next, Lee finished last season with 35 receptions, 704 yards and 11 touchdowns.
