Lee will make his final decision from a group of 5 which consists of Louisville, Arizona, Maryland, Gonzaga and Marquette. He has already scheduled a visit to Arizona on April 17-19, and will then head to U of L for an April 19-21 visit.
Scout.com asked Lee what he likes about each of the five schools on his list, and here's what he had to say about Louisville: "Playing in arguably best conference in the ACC.

Lee was do-it-all star at Drexel last season, averaging 21.4 ppg for the Dragons. He was named first team All-Colonial Athletic Association, and was also a first team selection to the conferences's All-Defensive team and All-Academic team. He has been labeled by ESPN.com as the No. 1 fifth-year transfer in the country.
