Lee was also being recruited by Oklahoma and other top programs. Ultimately, he chose to stay closer to home. He attended Hagerty High School in Oviedo, Fla.
Lee is a potential starter for the Canes in 2023. He started each of the last 3 seasons at center for the Golden Knights. He’s listed at 6-foot-4, 295 pounds.
Jakai Clark has served as Miami’s center for most of the past 2 seasons, but he also experience at guard. It’s possible he will slide to one of those positions if Lee earns the starting nod at center.
Lee has 2 years of eligibility remaining.
