3-star Louisiana DB delaying college decision
Three-star Louisiana defensive back Mike Lee was expected to make a splash this week when he announced his college decision.
However, that announcement has been put on hold for the Class of 2017 prospect.
Lee, who named UGA, Texas A&M and Texas Tech as his top three choices last week, will now wait until after National Signing Day (Feb. 3) to make his decision.
The shakeup in the coaching staffs at his top-three schools have led to Lee doing more research into his options.
“(I’m delaying my decision) because all the coaches in my top three had gotten fired,” Lee told SEC Country.
Lee is speaking about former UGA coach Mark Richt now coaching at Miami, with Kirby Smart taking his place. Jeremy Pruitt is now the Alabama defensive coordinator, which has forced Lee to rethink his situation.
Additionally, Kevin Curtis will not return to Texas Tech and Lee has concerns about Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin’s job security.
The 5-foot-9, 170-pound Lee is the No. 17 player in Louisiana and the No. 34 cornerback in the nation.
