Lee Humphrey, a 6-3, 175 pound combo guard from Maryville (TN) High School became the third prospect for the 2003-04 season to give Billy Donovan's Florida Gators a verbal commitment. He was also considering Purdue, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Auburn, Richmond, South Carolina, Tennessee, UNC-Wilmington and Appalachian State.
Humphrey averaged 21.3 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 3.6 steals last season. He carries a 4.1 GPA and scored 27 on the ACT.
Gainesville Sun's Dylan Tomlinson reported that Florida assistants saw Humphrey practice in January. Maryville High School coach Rodney Nelson told Tomlinson, "They were there about an hour and Lee didn't miss a shot. He knew they were there and I don't know if I've ever seen him play so well."
Humphrey plays with the Tennessee Travelers and is scheduled for this week's AAU Super Showcase in Lake Buena Vista, FL.
