Indianapolis LB hopes to visit MSU
One of the top prospects in the state of Indian for the class of 2014 will be outside linebacker Brandon Lee of Lawrence Central High School. SpartanMag.com was able to speak with this highly sought after player and got the latest details on his recruitment.
One of the positions that the Michigan State staff is very focused on for the class of 2014 is linebacker. The graduation of Denicos Allen and Max Bullough after 2013 will open up significant playing time and Head Coach Mark Dantonio wants a stable of prospects ready to come in a keep the level of play at an elite level. Lee is one of a few select Midwestern prospects that the Spartans re focused on. We spoke with him about his recruitment.
"Things are going well, I have offers from Indiana, Purdue, Iowa, Kentucky and Ball State," he stated. "As far as Michigan State goes, I have spoken with Coach Warner on the phone and he invited me up to see them play Boise State, but I was unable to make it because I had a game. I have watched them on TV every year, they are a good team and they are well coached."
With a solid list of scholarships already on the table, Lee will certainly be one of the higher ranked prospects in the Midwest for the class of 2014. Lee will have a solid shot at being a 4-star recruit and a rivals top 250 prospect. We asked him about what he is looking for in a school and his time frame is as far as making a college decision
"Location, academics, school tradition and if the school fits me are the most important things," Lee said." I am thinking I would like to make my decision before next season, but a lot will depend on how the recruiting process goes. I am not in a hurry right now."
Lee is a player that many schools will be looking to have on campus this fall and winter. He will certainly get his share of invites to games and junior days. Michigan State will likely hope to have him in East Lansing in 2 weeks when the Spartans host the Fighting Irish.
Lawrence Central High School is traditionally one of the better programs in Indian and that is once again the case this year. We asked the 6-foot-3m 210 pound Lee about this season so far and what his strengths are as a football player.
"So far the season is going well, we are 3-0," he said. "My strengths are my athleticism, ability to play in space, my football and IQ and my acceleration. I am always working to improve my speed."
SpartanMag.com will be sure to keep in contact with Lee in the comings weeks. The linebacker play at Michigan State right now is as good as anywhere in the nation and that is an attractive selling point to recruits who are looking challenge themselves and compete for a Big Ten championship.
