Marqise Lee reportedly loved his visit to Oregon last weekend with Gardena (Calif.) Serra teammates George Farmer and Jason Gibson but the four-star athlete still has some visits planned before making a decision.
"One thing I really like is to talk to the coaches face-to-face and I really like (secondary) coach (John) Neal at Oregon, the coach who's recruiting me," Lee said after catching two touchdown passes in a 35-21 victory over West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade Friday night.
"Their offense is great. They don't huddle so they get defenses tired and everything. If I decide to go there I'd be happy to play in it. It was defense at first but now they changed it to athlete. I'll get to decide where I want to play."

This weekend, Lee, one of the nation's top athletes, and Farmer, the top-rated wide receiver by Rivals.com, plan to visit Florida for its game against South Carolina. It's sure to be a boisterous atmosphere since the game will determine the SEC East champion.
"Coach (Brian) White has always been recruiting me, he's been recruiting me tough so therefore I want to respect him and at least give him a visit," Lee said.
"I love Florida. I've seen them play a couple times and I know they have a great program so that's why I'm taking a visit over there."
Lee and Farmer will also visit Miami in early December. There has been talk for some time that they're definitely going to play together in college and both players said it's about an "80 percent chance" that is still happening. A source said it's almost an absolute certainty that Lee and Farmer will pick the same school.
Lee said the duo is trying to make it a trio by getting Gibson, a four-star defensive end, on board as well. Gibson has Oregon, UCLA and Cal as his three favorites.
"We're trying to get Jason in the mix but Jason's not really there yet," Lee said. "We're going to talk to Jason and see if all three of us can go to one place."
Farmer and Lee aren't much looking at the Bruins or Golden Bears though and many expect those two to end up at USC after taking their visits. Lee smiled when asked about the Trojans but was coy in his response on whether he and Farmer would commit to USC.
"We don't know yet," Lee said. "That's one of our choices. If we decide to go there we'll let you know."
