Donovan Lee is skilled, athletic and fast and that's why some major programs are already showing serious interest in the West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade prospect.
Even though Lee was behind four-star Nebraska signee Terrell Newby this past season, numerous coaches have reached out recently, including UCLA, Oregon, Nebraska and Colorado to inquire about the 5-foot-8, 162-pound recruit.
Lee, who wore Oregon socks at the 4th Quarter Sports Elite 7on7 Tournament last weekend, said the Ducks have talked to him recently and he's excited about all the interest.

Whether it's at running back, slot receiver or cornerback, Lee makes an impact on the field and he could see his recruitment take off soon.
"I'm just getting a lot of mail," Lee said. "Oregon's running backs coach came out to talk to me the other day. They just said they were interested but there isn't a lot they can say at this point because it's still early.
"I'm probably going to focus more on offense this year because Terrell is leaving and that leaves a gap in our offense but it's wherever the team needs me. It's pretty fun. I love offense but I'm all right on defense, too."
West Hills Chaminade runs an up-tempo attack that puts up big numbers. Newby rushed for 2,305 yards and 45 touchdowns in his senior season but Lee had his opportunities, too, and finished with 652 yards and 12 touchdowns on 76 attempts.
Lee also caught two touchdown passes and finished with 52 tackles and six interceptions at cornerback. The West Hills Chaminade recruit is productive all over the field and he's excited about playing in that up-tempo offense next season.
"That's the way coach (Ed) Croson likes to run things," Lee said. "Our practices are fast-paced and we really like that.
"The position really depends on the school. Most of the schools are for defense right now but they're talking about athlete as well."
