When glancing over Utah's 2010 Spring Prospectus released Friday, there was a pleasant surpirse for Ute fans.
Listed on the roster and on Utah's 2010 recruiting class, it appears the Utes landed another receiver for their already stacked class, Martavious Lee.
Lee is a 3-star WR from Polomar Community College in Southern California, but is originally from Miami, Florida. He held offers from LSU, Arizona, Mississippi, Missouri, South Florida and Southern Mississippi. He was ranked at No. 21 in Rivals Top 50 community college prospects in 2009.
He gave LSU a verbal commitment in May of 2009. LSU wanted him to graduate in December to join the team for the spring semester to play spring football, but according to the team site, he wouldn't be able to join until Feb. 3 because he needed to finish the spring semester for his Associates Degree.
Lee was honored as Polomar's team MVP in 2009. He was an unanimous selection to the All-Southern Conference first team. He was an All-American honorable mention selection by J.C. Grid Wire and was a selection to the All-California Region III First Team.
What stands out on film is that Lee is fast. Real fast. According to the school, Lee runs a 4.4 forty. He is an explosive receiver with the athleticism to make big plays. He's a deep threat with his ability to beat corners using his speed. He also has decent size standing 6'1' and weighing 185 lbs.
Expect Lee to make an immediate impact for Utah. The Utes have holes at WR due to graduation that they must fill. Lee appears to have the talent to push guys like Luke Matthews and DeVonte Christopher for a starting WR spot. He still has a red-shirt year available, so that may be an option as well.
There is no word yet on why he is at Utah who, according to recruiting services, didn't even recruit him. He has not joined the team yet and will join in the fall.
