University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

Don’t forget about Marcus Lee, folks

In the midst of the Andrew Wiggins/Julius Randle/Aaron Gordon sweepstakes, plus the hoopla of the Harrison Twins picking Kentucky…sometimes a guy like Marcus Lee can fly below the radar. Marcus Lee is one of the members of Kentucky’s 2013 recruiting class. You probably already knew that though. In addition, Marcus Lee is only putting together one of the most impressive high school basketball seasons in the country this season.

Marcus Lee is currently averaging 18 points, 20 rebounds, 6 blocks and 4 assists per game for his Deer Valley High School basketball team. Read that stat line again. Twenty rebounds. That’s impressive no matter how you slice it. The 6’9 PF Lee is ranked as the 18th best player in the 2013 class by Rivals.com.

In case you need to refresh your memory and get in the spirit of the new 2013 year…

    Thanks for this info, Ally. And the best part is that scouts say this kid has tons of upside…

    It shouldn’t be hard to find a number for him. I see him wearing 13,22,55 don’t know if I missed any or not.

    Dunks, blocks, and rebounds. Exactly what the team will need next season with the players we have coming in and this kid gets them in bunches!

    Great post Ally on (at times) the forgotten recruit. This kid has heart along with that wingspan.

    I want to know if he can shoot the mid range jumper. Love the highlight reel but show me a jump shot!

    Great, another boy on the team for next year.

    The lad had a triple double on December 18. 18 points, 10 blocks, and 26 rebounds. Not his best outing in any category, either. I think he’s gonna be a good one.

    why do all you writers keep saying, randle, wiggins, and gordon sweeptakes? do all of you believe dakari johnson is a done deal? i believe he is the top ranked, unsigned center in the country, and i believe we need to let this guy know that we really want him as much as the big three that EVERYONE seems to be talkung about. lets give dakari some love k.s.r. and bbn! come on down big guy!!!!!

    not trying to be mean ally, just want to make sure we let dakari know that we really want him as well, thats all. go big blue!!!!

    Uh no mention of James Young. Possibly a more athletic version of Lamb. Dude can stroke it! He deserves a shout out. Big pick up. Our back court is insane deep next season.

    Lee is going to be a top 15 recruit on all boards and rankings by the end of the season. making the class look even stronger.

    @5 Hopefully he doesn’t wear 22, that would probably mean we didn’t get Wiggins! There should be no fight over 55 if he wants it, although that is the Lebron camp jersey so I doubt he chose that number.

    I have saw numerous Dakari Johnson videos and the guy looks like he couldn’t play dead in a western. I hope we pass on this guy.

    WOW!!!! This kid is very talented and extremely skilled. He’s 6’9″ but his wingspan makes him more like a 7 footer. He can put the ball on the floor with either hand. How is he ranked only 18th!?!!!

    Reminds me of CJ Leslie from NC State.

    @9, so you are saying that all the so called experts in recruiting that have him listed as a 5* center have no idea what they are talking about? and that he couldnt play dead in a western, interesting. maybe you can start your own recruiting service and make money with it, who knows?
