"The whole environment is great. There are a couple coaches that I already know and I know the coaches like me. I really like coach (Rich) Rodriguez and there are other coaches I know. I know a lot of people there and I really like it a lot."
Lee, a 5-foot-8, 185-pound three-star running back by Rivals.com, said he feels the offense is a perfect fit for him and that is one of the main draws for the Wildcats in his decision-making process.
In his junior season, the Marcos De Niza standout rushed for 722 yards and 12 touchdowns and also caught 23 passes for 405 yards and three scores. Arizona has recruited Lee as an athlete.
West Virginia, Arizona State, Boise State and Ohio were also showing interest throughout his recruitment.
But Arizona had everything Lee wanted and he said a commitment could come at any minute.
"They showed us the weight room, the equipment room and then after that they took us to the practice field," Lee said. "I love the coaches. I love everything.
"That's the perfect offense for me. I would fit in well. They do a lot of passing and running too and I'm more of a versatile running back so it seems like the perfect offense for me."
