B.J. Lee picked up his first college scholarship earlier this month. Since that time four other schools have made their intentions known by offering Lee the chance to play football for their respective programs.

"I just came off of a visit to Tennessee Tech and this weekend I am flying up to SMU," said Lee. "I was supposed to go to JSU, but I didn't go. I am thinking about going to Delta State that last weekend, but I am not sure."

All four schools talking visits with B.J. have offered as well as Nicholls State. One of Lee's favorite schools was the most recent to throw their hat into the ring.

"SMU offered earlier this week, like yesterday," said Lee. "It feels pretty good. I just want to go up there and check things out. I still want to weigh my options, but I feel good about it."

With the Mustangs coming through with an offer, one might expect B.J. to jump at the chance to play in Conference USA. There are still some matters the slashing runner wants to consider.

"I am not sure yet," said Lee. "I don't think you can just plan on making a decision. I think you just get a feel for a certain place. I am not sure if it will be today or tomorrow, but I know it will be before signing day."

Many schools felt Lee was simply too small to play college football. The Ridgeland All-Star ignored his critics and worked hard to prove him wrong. His belief in his dream never wavered.

"I never really doubted myself," said B.J. "Things came through slow. I know a lot of it is just because of my size, but it is what it is. I feel like I am just as much of a player as anyone else on the field. I work really hard and I have just put on about ten pounds of muscle."
