USC Trojans wide receiver Marqise Lee entered the 2013 college football season viewed by many as the top receiver prospect in college football. However, Lee has been plagued by injuries throughout the year and the Trojans offense struggled greatly at the beginning of the season, so his season hasn’t gone as planned.
While his production has been down, that hasn’t taken away from the way scouts view Lee and his ability to transition to the NFL.
Many believe that Lee is a guy who will be able to immediately boost a team’s passing game and give them a valuable weapon on the outside. He is still viewed as a first-round talent in the 2014 NFL Draft, so will he be declaring once the season is over?
Lee isn’t ready to make that decision just yet.
“I’ve been focusing on trying to leave all the outside stuff out,” Lee said. “Just focus on the weekend and actually getting the job done.”
While Lee is saying all of the right things, everyone expects him to bolt Southern California and forgo his final year of eligibility to enter the draft. Whether or not he decides to do that remains to be seen, so we will all have to wait a little longer for an official decision.
