Marcus Lee has become the 5th member of the #1 basketball recruiting class of 2013 for the Kentucky Wildcats.
Lee announced his decision at Deer Valley High School, California where he averaged 13.9 points and 9.1 blocks per game during the 2011-12 season, as the Wolverines finished 22-9, won the Bay Valley Athletic League and advanced to the North Coast Section Division I championship game.
The 6’9″ 205lb forward is ranked #15 by Rivals.com, #28 by ESPN, #32 by Scout, and #9 by 24/7 Sports.
California was in the final 2 for Marcus Lee.
John Calipari gets another shot blocker that has seemed to fit the prototypical defense the Wildcats have been playing since Anthony Davis created the template to win championships.
How many more will Cal add to this class?
Here is a list of possible additions:
