After three years in the Bluegrass State, Marcus Lee appears ready to come home.
The Antioch native and former Deer Valley High star announced on May 25 that he is transferring from Kentucky, and according to CBS Sports, Lee visited Cal on Tuesday and is expected to commit to the Golden Bears.
"He's going to Cal. Unless something crazy happens, he's going to Cal," a source told CBS Sports.
Wildcats coach John Calipari said in a release last week that the 6-foot-9 junior wants to transfer to a school out west to be closer to his family. Lee participated in the NBA draft combine but was given an outside chance at being selected. He'll have one season of eligibility remaining and says, "I'm trying to do what's right for me and my family."
After playing sparingly in the first two seasons at Kentucky, Lee saw his minutes per game climb to 21.8 in 2015-16. He averaged 6.4 points and 6.0 rebounds in 36 games this past season.
A five-star recruit coming out of high school in 2013, Lee was rated as the No. 19 overall prospect in the country by Rivals.com. At the time, he picked Kentucky over Cal.
