Indy 2-star DT Lee finds new home
Two-star defensive tackle William Lee (Indianapolis/Arsenal Tech) didn't stay on the market long.
Lee, who originally committed to Ball State in June, decommitted from the Cardinals this week and is already on board with another Mid-American Conference program, Northern Illinois, according to multiple reports.
Western Illinois also offered the 6-foot, 275-pound senior. Cincinnati, Indiana and Louisville showed interest earlier in the process.
ESPN believes Lee "will provide alignment versatility along the defensive line, playing in the interior or outside at end ... If he can add bulk and maintain his quickness, he could be a productive mid-major prospect."
Before his junior year, Lee registered a combine-verified 5.17 40-yard dash, 4.78 20-yard shuttle and 30.6-inch vertical.
The Huskies have 14 pledges.
