Marcus Lee expected to announce through UK

marcuslee happy

Marcus Lee and Isaiah Briscoe have until midnight tonight to announce whether or not they’re staying in the NBA Draft or returning to school. If you’re looking for clues as to what Lee will do, our old pal Jeff Goodman has one. According to Goodman, the only media member to be in contact with Lee through this process, it looks like Lee will make his announcement today through UK. So, read into that what you will.

If I had to guess, I’d say that means he’s more likely to come back, but who knows. I really hope that’s the case.

    I actually feel the opposite. That since he is announcing through UK that means he is leaving. Not really sure why…I guess we wait and see!

      I agree with you, and I think it is because should he leave, and he announces it before the press, he would have to field a lot of questions. There are not a lot of good answers to give when it comes to leaving college early and not exceptionally skilled. That said, I don’t think another year here will help him if he wants to be an NBA player. If he is not interested in furthering his education for a good career after basketball, then perhaps he should go on and play foreign ball.

      there was a rumor that 6 uk football players failed a drug test. but it was apparently completely made up. of course that didn’t stop louisville fans parading around twitter all day as if it were true and calling us hypocrites for making fun of second chance U

      Not a Louisville fan, but for anyone to make up a rumor about UK football….UK Football..means they have way too much time on their hands. I would not be surprised if this was true. Matty Bangs isnt going to dig up anything, remember its not another school

      Not a UofL fan? You kind of gave yourself away with “Matty Bangs”

    I’m not sure if I’d rather see him go or stay. You never know if he is going to make an athletic play but you do know he is going to be out of position on D and foul someone. We could certainly use the depth though and it will allow Bam to play more at the 4 where he should crush it…

      Lee is always most useful when he can come off the bench and provide a lift. He’s an energy guy who is inconsistent at times and a bad matchup at times, but when we are not forced to have him in the game every minute he’s not in foul trouble, like last year, he can be very useful and very effective.

    I hope he comes back to help give experience and leadership to the team and finish his degree. With his draft stock situation, that degree may come in pretty handy in the near future.

      I think he’ll come back – just not with us…

    Goodman attached himself to Lee because it was a way to attach himself to UK so he could troll. Reason being is because Lee was always seen as late second round at best to undrafted and this way Goodman could weasel his way into UK media.
