Marqise Lee is looking to make his Las Vegas Bowl appearance once that NFL scouts won’t soon forget and he made an NFL style catch late in the game against Fresno State. Lee is the top rated wide receiver in this year’s draft class so it’s not like he’s making or breaking his status in the Las Vegas Bowl. Still, Lee would like to prove he’s with the highest pick possible for himself and his late catch against the Bulldogs defiantly helps.

In the NFL, it’s all about catching the gal and keeping your feet in bounds. Lee did that along the sidelines as he not only secured a great catch but had the presence of mind to keep his feet from going out of bounds. Not only that, he was able to regain his balance and pick up something else NFL scouts like — yards after the catch.

USC has had a disappointing season and as a result, so has Lee. He’s made the most of it though and the Trojans made the most of their Las Vegas Bowl appearance as well with a 45-20 win. Lee’s catch was one of the many highlights and it’s proof that the young man is in for a great NFL career.
