Notre Dame is steadily building its list of visitors for next month’s Junior Day and it appears that Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence Central junior outside linebacker Brandon Lee - one of the top instate prospects in the class of 2014 - could be on hand for the event.
Brandon Lee could be one of the top instate recruits on hand for Notre Dame's Junior Day on March 23rd.
“I’m pretty sure I’m going to be going to that on March 23rd,” the 6-3, 215-pound recruit said. “I’m going to give [Notre Dame defensive line] coach [Mike] Elston a call here soon now that Signing Day is over.
“I really liked [Notre Dame] when I went to go workout for them last summer. They have a really good program there and they play as a team. The coaching staff there is really good, too. The academic side of things there is what interests me the most. Right now I’m just kind of waiting to see what happens with them.”
The four-star prospect, who has offers from Ball State, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisville, N.C. State and Purdue, camped in South Bend last summer, and hopes that after this visit he will be leaving with an offer.
“If they offered me then that would be pretty big,” Lee said. “I wouldn’t necessarily throw them out in front of everybody right away and want to commit or anything, though. I still have to do a lot more research on schools.”
The Hoosier State standout feels that Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State and Northwestern could be close to offering.
“Michigan told me they wanted me to workout in front of [Wolverines defensive coordinator] coach [Greg] Mattison,” Lee said. “I haven’t had the chance to schedule everything, but I could possibly get up there this summer, too.
“I don’t have any favorites or a top list right now. I’m just sitting back and letting it all come in right now. I want to see if anything picks up this summer.”
Lee recorded 90 tackles, forced three fumbles, picked off two passes and scored four touchdowns on defense during a junior campaign that ended with a state title.
He is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 21 junior outside linebacker in the country and the No. 2 player in Indiana for the class of 2014.
