Three-star receiver down to three
You won't find many more versatile backs than Parris Lee out of Neptune Beach (Fla.) Fletcher. It is only fitting that Lee's list of three finalists for where he will play football is just as diverse as his skill set. As National Signing Day approaches, Lee has one more visit left before a decision.
"Right now I'm in a contest between Georgia State, Bethune-Cookman and Western Michigan," Lee said. "I narrowed it down to those three. I took a visit to Georgia State last weekend and I've already been to Western Michigan and I'm setting up a visit to Bethune-Cookman this weekend."
Though different, each school presents some opportunities that appeal to Lee and each school he has visited has impressed him in its own way.
"I loved Atlanta, I loved being in Atlanta," he said of the Georgia State visit. "I also loved being in Kalamazoo. It was cold up there so me being from Florida it was something to get used to but I think I can get used to it.
"I feel like Georgia State, I can be the man there. They start their program there in 2010 and I can say I was the first. At Western Michigan, I feel like I can be an x-factor there too. Bethune-Cookman is local and they play great competition."
Though Lee knows he is down to those three programs, he doesn't yet know who he will decide on and neither will any of the public until National Signing Day.
"Me and my folks discussed that we're going to decide on the 2nd (of February) exactly what we're going to do and then the world will know on the 4th."
As a senior, Lee helped his team to a perfect regular season record while compiling 700 yards receiving and 850 yards rushing out of his slot receiver position.
