USC Trojans wide receiver Marqise Lee is wrapping up the 2012 college football season in style. It's no surprise that CBS Sports has him currently ranked 3rd on the Heisman Straw Poll. Collin Klein of Kansas State is currently the frontrunner, with Notre Dame's Manti Te'o second.

Lee is coming off the greatest single game performance ever by a Trojan wide receiver, catching 16 passes for 345 yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort against the Arizona Wildcats. Lee also added 123 yards on his kickoff returns, ending up with 469 all-purpose yards on 20 touches of the football. Lee was named Chris Houston's Heisman Player of the Week for his efforts.

So far this season, Lee has caught 10 passes or more in five games and topped 100 receiving yards in five games. He's had other signature performances. Lee piled up 10 catches for 197 yards in the season opener against Hawaii and returned a kickoff for a touchdown and caught 11 passes for 192 yards against Utah. Nationally, Lee currently is ranked 2nd in receiving yards per game, 3rd in receptions per game, and 4th in all-purpose yards per game.
