Is Marcus Lee being overlooked?
By Joe Kaiser
Marcus Lee (Antioch, Calif./Deer Valley High) is ranked fifth among Kentucky's stellar six-man 2013 class, No. 30 overall by Recruiting Nation, but there's a growing feeling that he may be even better than his ranking suggests.
Dave Telep wrote earlier this month that Lee was having one of the top "under-the-radar" seasons of all prep players this year, and since then Lee has done nothing to prove otherwise.
The 6-foot-9, 200-pounder out of the Bay Area had a monster game last night, going for 16 points, 27 rebounds, 11 blocks, and 4 assists in a winning effort. It's Lee's rebounding abilities that stand out most right now, and that's probably where he'll make the biggest impact in Lexington next season.
