On Saturday, 2014 outside linebacker Brandon Lee cut his final list to five schools. The schools in his top five are the Louisville Cardinals, Oregon Ducks, Northwestern Wildcats, California Golden Bears, and Virginia Tech Hokies.
There should be no surprise that Louisville was one of the teams to make Lee’s top five list.
This is because all eleven recruiting experts on the 247 Sports Crystal Ball are predicting that the Indiana native will end up committing to the Cardinals.
One reason why experts are predicting that Lee will commit to Louisville is because the Cardinals are also recruiting his Lawrence Central teammate WR Kenny Jones. In interviews, Lee has said that he and Jones are “like brothers” and want to attend the same college together.
If the two want to play at the next level together, Louisville might be the place. Jones only has four offers right now, and three of them are from Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa State who were cut from Lee’s list.
Brandon Lee is overall a quality prospect from the Class of 2014. At 6’3″, 215 pounds, he has a pretty good frame, but he also matches it with his amazing reactive quickness. He also is athletic and shows good skills in his tackling, pursuit, and lateral movement.
The four-star recruit is currently ranked 5th in the state of Indiana and 31st among outside linebackers by 247Sports.
