TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Running back Kelvin Lee from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland came to Florida State's Jimbo Fisher Football Camp on Monday in hopes of landing his first offer. The 5-foot-9, 185-pound running back worked with Eddie Gran, his prospective position coach, and felt he performed well during the camp session.
"Working with Coach Gran was really good," Lee said. "I like the way he coaches. He is always on you, he is always pushing you. If you mess up, he brings you back and works with you and has you go through it again. When you do it right, he tells you and keeps you up. He is a good running backs coach. He just told me to make sure I take my time running my routes and to make sure when I am doing my walk-through that I am doing everything right and I am crisp. He said to make sure you know what you are doing before you do it."
According to Lee, the Seminoles have consistently expressed interest in him but they haven't talked about the possibility of an offer. Lee said there is a handful of other schools showing regular interest in him.
"I am hearing a lot from South Alabama, Iowa State, JU, UCF, and USF," Lee said.
Lee's visit to Tallahassee marked his first summer trip. He is planning to camp at another in-state institution next weekend.
"I am going to Miami on the 25th," Lee said. "I am hoping to show them something and maybe earn an offer down there."
When Lee eventually has to make a decision on his future college home, he is simply looking for the right fit with his team.
"I want to be able to go in and just have a good bond with my coaches and my teammates," Lee said. "Academics are also always going to be first."
As a junior, Lee accumulated 964 yards and three touchdowns while sharing duties with Tennessee signee Marlin Lane. In Mainland's 14-0 spring game victory over Port Orange (Fla.) Spruce Creek, Lee rushed for 116 yards and had a receiving touchdown.
