Drexel’s new head coach Zach Spiker has received his first 2016 commitment.
Kurk Lee Jr., a point guard from Baltimore, MD, made his decision to join the Dragons yesterday after receiving an offer from Drexel this past Thursday. Lee’s father is Kurk Lee Sr., who starred at Towson University and went on to play in the NBA. He gives Spiker and his staff much needed help in the backcourt after guards Terrell Allen and Sammy Mojica transferred following the dismissal of head coach Bruiser Flint in March.
Lee’s size (5-foot-8, 140 pounds) may concern some, but despite his physical traits, he filled up the stat sheet this past season for St. Frances Academy. He averaged 16.4 points, 5.8 assists, and 3.6 rebounds, according to The Baltimore Sun. Furthermore, he earned a spot on the All-Metro first team and helped St. Frances win the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference championship.
The three-year high school starter joins Sam Green and Jeremy Peck in Drexel’s 2016 class. Western Kentucky and Maryland Eastern Shore also showed interest in Lee.
