Marcus Lee Recruiting: Top 2013 Forward Takes Unofficial Visit to UCLA

UCLA had one of the top big men in the Class of 2013 on campus last Saturday as Marcus Lee took an unofficial visit to the university.

The 6'9" forward out of Antioch, Calif., visited along with 2014 guards Jordan McLaughlin and Parker Jackson-Cartright, Adam Zagoria reported.

The four-star recruit is ranked 33 nationally and has already received offers from a multitude of schools other than UCLA, including Cal, Duke, Indiana and Kansas. Lee still has official visits scheduled for Louisville and Kentucky. Kentucky has yet to offer Lee a scholarship.

Lee most resembles Anthony Davis as a long and lean center who specializes in shot blocking, rebounding and a surprising quickness. He averaged 13.9 points and 13.9 rebounds a game for Deer Valley High School as a junior last year.

"Pauley Pavilion is going to be amazing," Brian Lee, Marcus's brother, told SNY.tv. "The team looks like they are ready to do some damage this year. Everyone in the program was great to us, from the coaches to the players to the team managers. The academic counselor was really helpful. There's nothing bad you can say about it."
