Versatile athlete Vad Lee out of Durham (N.C.) Hillside took four visits over spring break. The 6-foot-2, 193-pounder traversed around the state and plans to head out on more visits soon.
"I went to Duke earlier this week and just talked to Coach Cutcliffe and the quarterback coach," he said. "That was cool. I got to go to his office and he showed me passing clips and what they do and how they operate. It was real cool to be one-on-one being that he has done great things with quarterbacks in the past. The quarterback coach talked to me basically about life in general which was good, instead of just football. It was new and something different."
On Thursday, Lee headed over to Raleigh to stop through NC State.
"I got to watch them practice and it was pretty cool," he said. "I liked their practice and I love the offense they run. I liked the coaching staff a lot; Coach O'Brien is pretty laid back. I have a pretty good relationship with the offensive coordinator and I think it would be an easy transition in the offense."
On Friday, Lee headed over to Greenville for a stop through East Carolina.
"It was pretty good," he said. "We got to watch practice a little bit and I went with a couple of my teammates. I walked around the campus and saw the facilities. Their practice is pretty intense.
"The staff there is pretty cool, they are like a family type of atmosphere. Coach McNeil is pretty laid back and he talked to me a bit."
Recently one of Vad's teammates, Treshawn Council committed. How does that impact him?
"That's pretty big," he said. "I do it for my teammates. I'm definitely looking at East Carolina and Treshawn is pushing it hard. He's pretty excited and was decked out in all his gear."
Rounding out the week of visits was a stop by North Carolina's spring game on Saturday.
"I had a blast at North Carolina," he said. "There wasn't anything new, but I talked to Greg Little who graduated from my school. He and I are close. I talked to the whole staff and it was fun."
Lee is looking at a trip one of the next two weekends to Georgia Tech either for a junior day on the 17th or the spring game on the 24th.
A few more trips are on the horizon.
"I have an Elite 11 at Ohio State and I think I'm going to take an unofficial there. They've sent a little bit of mail," he said. "I'm also going to Virginia Tech for the Nike Camp on May 8th and I'll probably stay the day after and visit the campus a bit. Maryland has been keeping in contact too and I'm going to try to go there over the summer sometime."
Do any teams lead at this point in time?
"Georgia Tech and North Carolina are recruiting me the hardest, but I really don't have any clear leader right now. East Carolina is coming up though, I love my teammates and they have offered a couple already. I am anxious to see Georgia Tech, but I'm not sure about the offense."
