USC Trojans sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee is opening a lot of eyes around the country with his stellar play this season. We can officially add Stanford Cardinal head coach David Shaw to that list.

The 6'1" Lee has had an incredible 2012 campaign. In nine games for the Trojans, he's caught 88 passes for 1286 yards and 12 touchdowns. His Week 9 performance in the Trojans' 39-36 loss to the Arizona Wildcats was one for the record books. Lee caught 16 passes for a Pac-12-record 345 yards, breaking the previous record of 293 yards receiving set by Oregon State's Mike Hass against Boise State in 2004. Those 345 yards were the fifth-best in FBS history.

The Trojans will play host to the Arizona State Sun Devils on Saturday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Kickoff is slated for noon PT and the game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network.
