Zach Lee, the 6-foot-4, 200-pound quarterback from McKinney, Texas, finished his junior season with 2,935 yards passing for 33 touchdowns. He also rushed for 260 yards and another 11 scores on the ground.
“I’d say I’m accurate and can throw intermediate and long routes with precision,” Lee said. “I’m more of a drop back passer.
“I’d like to improve my speed and scrambling in the pocket,” he said.
Lee says he now has offers from Alabama, Ole Miss, Texas Tech, Nebraska, LSU, Kansas, Arizona and Arizona State. “I’m trying to keep an open mind,” he said. “I’ll definitely narrow it down by summer.
“I just want to learn as much as I can about everybody,” he said. “I’m gonna have my family help me and we’ll choose the schools which will be the best fit.”
The only junior day that Lee attended was Oklahoma’s, although the Sooners still haven’t offered. “It was a new experience,” he said about their junior day. “I liked seeing the facilities and meeting all the coaches. They seem very nice and very easy to talk to, plus they really know a lot about football. They are very smart. They really know what they are talking about.”
So did the Sooners offer Lee any indication that they might offer? “I’m not sure,” he said. “They definitely seem interested but we didn’t talk about an offer.”
Besides Oklahoma, the only other school that he’s visited is Texas Tech. “They were my first offer last year,” he said of the Red Raiders. “They are about six hours away but that’s not a factor for me. I don’t mind going away or staying close.”
Lee says he’ll be playing baseball this spring and summer and may not be able to attend any camps or visit any other schools. One school he says he’d like to visit is LSU.
“I don’t know much about them except what I see on TV,” Lee said. “They seem to have a good offense too and I like the SEC. It’s a top conference and they play great competition every week. They’ve been really impressive over the last five to six years and always seem to be a top team in the SEC.”
Growing up Lee says he didn’t follow any specific schools and perhaps that’s why he’s still so undecided. “I’m really not sure what I’m looking for,” he said. “I want to be comfortable and really like the coaches I’m playing for. I also want to play for a team that is moving in the right direction and winning.
“I haven’t really been able to do much research on anybody yet,” he said. “I definitely plan to start that because I want to narrow it down a bit this summer.”
Lee says he plans on majoring in either math or engineering and reports a 3.9 core GPA and a 27 ACT.
