Now that the early signing period has come and gone, college coaches have turned their attention towards guys they can get in the spring. At last weekend's National Prep Showcase in New Haven, Conn., Damion Lee proved that he's going to be a guy getting lots of looks.
A native of the Washington D.C. area, Lee is a 6-foot-5 wing at Oakdale (Conn.) St. Thomas More. He enters the winter with offers from Northeastern (where he visited), Hofstra and St. Bonaventure while Penn State, Boston College, VCU and Providence have already taken a peak.
"I'm getting recruited as a shooting guard," Lee told Rivals.com. "Coaches, they like my length, my size and my ability to get out on the floor and run. They think that I'm athletic, versatile and that I can do a lot of things."
According to Lee, he's most focused on building up his strength and tightening up his perimeter game. He credits the time he's already spent at St. Thomas More learning under coach Jere Quinn for making him a better player and student.
"It's great, I love it at St. Thomas More," said Lee. "I feel like I'm getting better each day. Getting up for six in the morning workouts, having a coach who is on me to work hard, it's all been good.
For now, Lee is wide open to any school that wants to recruit him and he wants to see who comes in for a look. As the Spring approaches he'll look to set up some visits and make a decision but he's yet to establish a target date.
"There's really no time table for a decision yet," said Lee. "I'm just going to wait it out a bit and see who is interested and then pick three or four that I want to lock in on. Then my mom and I will sit down and talk about it."
