Lee working through the summer

Nebraska commit Eric Lee missed getting to Lincoln for Big Red Weekend. In fairness, the four-star cornerback has been busy trying to have everything in order to enroll in January.

Nebraska had two Big Red Weekend events in June, but Eric Lee did not attend. He's been to Lincoln for every other possible opportunity -- literally -- but he's bee a little busy through the summer months.

"I am doing summer school," Lee said. "It's so I can graduate early. It's going good. I have a 99% in the class. The ACT went well the weekend of Big Red Weekend. I think that I did well."

Lee took part in a recent camp/combine in the hopes that it would help him get some All-American recognition. Given the fact that he camp away with the MVP award there is a very good chance that he did just that.

"I did the Football University and people thought that my performance would help my chances for the U.S. Army All-American Game.

"I was the defensive back MVP. Avery Anderson was there with me and they say that we were No. 1 and 2 and it could have gone either way."

Lee says that his high school has some summer workouts, but right now they are shut down. They will start back up after the 4th and will get into pads during the month of July.

"I am just focusing on my high school workouts. We just started our two week dead period and we get back to work on July 7th.

"Our fall camp starts in August. When we come back in July though we will start working out in pads for two weeks and then we will have two weeks off."

Both Lee and Avery Anderson have been talking with Nebraska recently beyond the 'What's new?' conversations. The talk now is about the process of getting everything ready to go from high school to college in January.

"Coach Charlton Warren and I spoke the other day with Avery. We talked about enrolling early, the process to get it all done and just about what's going on in our personal lives."

Lee has been focused on building a strong class by communicating with the other commits. He's also been reaching out to recruits who are holding Nebraska offers over social media. It sounds like Nebraska want to add another body in the 2015 class for the secondary.

"Coach Warren said that they have an extra spot in the class now because someone left the team," Lee said. "It sounds like they might be going after another guy in the secondary still."
