Desmond Lee Commits To North Carolina State

Gottfried looks pumped or something - Streeter Lecka

Desmond Lee had been a juco target John Groce was showing interest in.

So I guess we know somebody who won't be using one of those three scholarships we have available.

This doesn't come as a huge surprise. While John Groce and the Illini had shown plenty of interest in Lee in the past, that interest seemed to wane in recent weeks. Whether it was Lee driving it or Illinois I'm not sure, but when Lee was in Raleigh, North Carolina watching the Elite Eight with Mark Gottfried last week it became pretty apparent that we weren't going to be his ultimate destination.
