Better Know a Freshman: Devonta Lee
quote:

Listed as an athlete due to his ability to play both wide receiver and safety (or a Jacoby Stevens-esque position at LSU) at the next level, Lee started off as one of the top juniors in the nation before falling down to the 130s. Possibly the uncertainty of his position at the next level caused his drop or the famed Alabama rankings push died as he looked more towards LSU, but Lee stayed as a top-10 athlete in the nation.


quote:

If you had questions about Lee’s versatility, his film showcases him doing a variety of things at an elite level on both sides of the ball. As a safety, Lee does a good job at playing center field in tracking the ball the air, and also shows numerous times his ability to get up to the line and make a tackle or big hit. On offense, there is a deceptive speed to Lee’s game.


quote:

There’s talk that Lee could move to a tight end in this new Joe Brady offense which sort of coincides with my thought process that Lee could be a perfect possession receiver on the inside


Lee has the makings of a physical possession receiver or tight end.

I definitely would like to know more about how he's doing. Feel like I've heard about everyone but Lee.

I see a good career of Lee moving the chains on those third and short passing downs.


The most exciting part of the whole article. I can’t remember the last time “3rd and short” was actually considered a passing down at LSU.

Everyone knows. That is why Bama is on the list of every high school football player in the nation. That is why the imaginary player shot up to a 3-star when he claimed on his fake facebook page that he had received a Bama offer. Rivals even set up a recruiting profile for him and analyzed his game including strengths and weaknesses. The Bama bounce is REAL.

I'm not certain but I think he has been out with an injury and has just recently started practicing.

From Dandy's this morning:
"Wide receivers Devonta Lee and Jaray Jenkins were wearing gold no-contact jerseys."


Devonta:
HEIGHT: 6'1"
WEIGHT: 223lbs.
CLASS: Freshman
CITY/STATE: Fluker, La.
HIGH SCHOOL: Amite HS

Better Know Geography...

quote:

There has always been a battle to reclaim north Louisiana in the name of LSU after Nick Saban and Alabama appeared to build up a stronghold in the area. It took until this year and a stronger emphasis in the area to make a dent up there, successfully getting two from the area in Trey Palmer and Devonta Lee.

Amite is far from North Louisiana.

Also, TR;DV.

They do one a day I think. I post maybe one a week. I think it is just some Joe from this board that does them now.

As long as it's not some Jeaux.

Edited: I doubt our resident Tourist would write anything flattering about a WR.

The sad thing is that this is one of the better ones. The others are even more cringe worthy.

Or safety. Many thought that he would play safety in college regardless of the position he was recruited at.

re: Better Know a Freshman: Devonta Lee
He’s going to outgrow safety

And he’s too short to be a TE
