Kentucky transfer F Marcus Lee to visit Cal on Tuesday

-

From one Cal to another, Kentucky transfer forward Marcus Lee is expected visit the California Golden Bears later this week. The rising senior is expected to commit to the team during his visit and sit out the 2016-17 season before playing his final year in 2017.

Lee was one of the many Wildcats to announce transfers going into the 2016 season.

CBS Sports’ Jon Rothstein reported Lee’s visit with the Golden Bears Sunday afternoon.

This might not come as a shock to many fans after the reason for Lee leaving Lexington in the first place. Head coach John Calipari said that the forward, an Antioch (Calif.) Deer Valley native, wanted to leave and be closer to his family for the time being.

“We talked it through together and discussed the team next season, which he said had no bearing on his decision,” Calipari said in a statement. “I also told him he was a semester away from graduating. With that said, he was still adamant that, after the combine experience, a year off and regrouping would be the best thing. As always, I support my players and their decisions.”

Marcus Lee was the top-ranked center in the country in the 2013 recruiting class and has been a big piece for the team the last few years. He averaged 6.4 points and 6.0 rebounds per game last season.
