Every coach needs a first recruit to get the ball rolling. Mike Anderson has his at Arkansas thanks to Dederick Lee.
A high scoring 6-foot-2 shooting guard from Clarksville (Ark.) High, Lee committed to Mike Anderson and his staff during a Saturday visit to Fayetteville.
A four-star prospect from the class of 2013, Lee is an explosive scorer who can create his shot off the dribble. He gets to the rim, is a streaky shooter and is a bit under rated as a playmaker.
Currently ranked #87 nationally in the sophomore class, Lee was joined by an important visitor.
Star freshman Jahlil Okafor of Chicago (Ill.) Whitney Young was on campus for a visit as well. According to sources, Okafor was extended a scholarship offer by Mike Anderson.
