Earlier today ESPN’s Jeff Goodman reported California is the “early front-runner” to land Marcus Lee for Lee’s senior season of basketball in 2017-18. The San Francisco Chronicle has since confirmed through a source close to the Cal program that Cal is “in the mix” for Lee, but maybe not the front-runner.
Goodman’s source is likely close to Lee, not California, so maybe he is hearing positive things on that end, from the family. Either way, it’s clear California is a very possible destination for the former Wildcat.
One tiny issue: Cal does not have any available scholarships to take Lee next season for his sit-out year. Gotta think Cuonzo Martin can figure that one out, though — if he wants him.
Still kind of hard to believe this is really happening. Why, Marcus?
