Reserve (La.) East St. John wide receiver Louis Lee is one of many talented prospects on the squad this year. He already has two offers and one major SEC power has been showing lots of interest as of late.
"I have offers from Illinois and Louisiana-Lafayette," Lee said. "Alabama has been showing me a lot of interest lately. They have been sending me handwritten letters and stuff all the time. West Virginia has been showing a lot of interest lately too."
The 5-foot-10, 165-pound Lee attended the NIKE camp in Athens where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.67 seconds, the shuttle in 4.37 seconds and posted a 29-inch vertical jump.
"Right now my top five would be Alabama, West Virginia, Illinois, Tennessee and Ole Miss," Lee said. "Alabama and Illinois are probably my top two. Alabama is close to home and it's a good program. Illinois has been on my for a while and coach Zaunbrecher came down in the spring and I saw him and then he called and we talked a long time."
As a junior Lee caught 60 passes for 1,156 yards and eight touchdowns. He caught all of his passes last season from five star quarterback and LSU signee Ryan Perrilloux.
"I don't mind going to a program where I can help them build their program," Lee said. "I like the schools that are on the way up. Playing time is not a big deal to me, I don't mind red-shirting at all. I do want to play wide receiver which is where most schools are recruiting me."
Lee, like most prospects from East St. John, plans to ride out the process and does not intend on making an early decision.
"I want to take some official visits first," Lee said. "I guess there is always a chance I could commit early, but if I were to commit early I would still want to take my visits and check everything out."
