In state recruits are always important for the longevity of any program. They can commit early, create excitement in the fan base and the recruiting class, and strengthen the important local relationships. They also can visit the school almost every recruiting weekend and advocate for their future school. On top of all that, they can be really good players. Carson Lee is one of those prospects that checks all of those boxes.
Carson Lee plays for the newly-crowned state champions in Cherry Creek High School. At Cherry Creek, Lee played all along the offensive line, but he will factor in at center for the Colorado Buffaloes. Lee had national offers from all over the country, including Nebraska, but he decided to stay within an hour of home.
Lee against Colorado high school players is just not fair. You put on the tape, he is just breaking people on the turf. Carson Lee is ready-made physically, has the technique necessary, and has plenty of mental edge to bury defensive lines. This is the type of player you need to lean on teams until they quite. He will be on campus in the spring and I expect him to play early.
