Talented TE waiting for second offer
There is a lot of upside in Crockett, Texas tight end Naquan Lee. The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder has a great frame, soft hands and the ability to play on either side of the ball. Currently, Lee has one offer from Arkansas but the athletic prospect could land more this fall if more coaches are able to see him in his remote location.
This summer, Lee spent his time working out with his team and didn't have the opportunity to compete at camps in front of coaches. That may have limited his offers to this point but Lee is ready for a big season to prove earn more.
"I really don't have the money to go around to camps so I just worked out on my own," Lee said. "I'm trying to make it and play division I football. That was whole summer. This is my last year so I've gotta work hard."
With Arkansas the only school to extend him an offer, Lee is still hearing from a few other programs.
"I got one offer from Arkansas and that's the only one," he said. "I've gotten looked at by a lot more schools but that's the only one so far. I've been hearing from Texas A&M, Arkansas and Alabama. If they give me an offer, I'm willing to take it."
One of the main focuses for Lee this offseason has been his speed. Already with soft hands and a great frame, Lee has been adding to his list of assets.
"The only think I've really been working on is my speed," he said. "I've got everything else it's just my speed. I'm trying to get my speed down a little bit more. I just want to get better every day. That's my goal."
Though he hasn't heard much from them, Texas is the program that Lee would love to get some communication from.
