Recruiting of New Albany's Lee picking up steam

Things are starting to add up for New Albany junior Darron Lee.

A second-team all-OCC-Capital Division selection last season, Lee showed his versatility by seeing time at quarterback and wide receiver on offense and in the secondary on defense as the Eagles finished with a 9-3 record.

Lee could be the leading candidate to start at quarterback for New Albany as a senior, but it's definitely up in the air regarding where Lee will end up playing collegiately.

After Boston College came in with the first scholarship offer for Lee in January, Bowling Green, Kent State and Toledo followed suit in the coming weeks.

Then on March 10, Lee picked up offers from Purdue and Illinois. He took a visit to Illinois the same day.

Lee, who is listed on his ScoutingOhio page as 6-3, 205 but is listed on Rivals as 6-1, 187, would seem to be a candidate at quarterback based on his size and speed (4.6 in the 40). What's left to be determined is whether he has the necessary quarterback skills.

Anyone curious to see what he can do on the field can check him out here. While highlight tapes such as these are designed to present the best in an athlete, this one definitely shows his quickness.

Lee attended Ohio State's junior day on Jan. 29 and would reportedly be intrigued by an offer from the Buckeyes, according to this OSU site.
