by Categorized: Recruiting Tagged: , , Date:

What’s goin on? Just spoke with 6 foot 7, 260-pound tight end Chris Lee of Severna (Md.) Park High. Lee is the Huskies 12th commitment to the Class of 2015. Lee, who visited UConn last month, is believed to have been a top Huskies target at the position. Apparently, the young man has some experience in coming up big at big moments. Peep this clip of Lee on the hardwood… “First, the campus was beautiful, just gorgeous,” Lee said. “The other thing, the coaching staff, their energy is infectious. They’re a great a staff. They know what they’re doing and they want it bad. And finally, I talked to Tyler Davis and Connor Freeborn and they kind of got me hooked on UConn.” Lee hadn’t had any other scholarships offers but was getting calls from Maryland, Navy and Rutgers. “UConn was the only place I visited and I knew it was the place for me,” Lee said Lee spoke highly of the new coaching staff, too, like all the others. “The staff itself is hungry, they want it bad you can just tell,” Lee said. “What Coach [Bob] Diaco does is just infectious, it spreads. He’s an electric… just really energetic, you can just tell he’s a great coach. And I like Coach [Mike] Cummings’ offense. I liked it all.” DC
