Marcus Lee could be returning to Rupp Arena.
It’s been just over six hours, yet five schools have already reached out to Lee. Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Baylor, Kansas and Gonzaga have reached out to Lee, according to Jeff Rabjohns of Rivals. He wouldn’t be eligible to play for Kansas next fall, but it would be interesting to see if he made the trip with the team to Rupp Arena.
Considering Lee wants to be closer to home, Gonzaga is the only early school that makes geographical sense. The other former Cat to make the move to Spokane, Kyle Wiltjer, did alright for himself, earning WCC Tournament MVP and All-American Honorable Mention honors in his final season.
Lee leaves UK as a contradiction. He’s the career leader in field goal percentage (66.04%) and last in career free throw percentage (38.83%).
