NC State signs JUCO guard Desmond Lee

Posted April 18, 2013

— NC State has signed New Mexico Junior College guard Desmond Lee, Wolfpack head basketball coach Mark Gottfried announced Thursday. Lee will join the Pack’s 2013 recruiting class and will have two seasons to play for the Wolfpack starting this fall.

“We are really excited to add Desmond,” said Gottfried. “He is a true combo guard who can play off the ball and is very good with the ball in his hands.

“We love how he shoots and he will add an additional three-point shooter for us. He brings high character to our program and it was important to add another upperclassman with the maturity that Desmond possesses.”

The 6-4, 194 pound guard averaged 20.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game for coach James Miller this past season. His scoring average was the fifth-best in the JUCO ranks. Lee helped the program finish the year 27-7 and earned second-team All-American honors on the junior college level.

The native of Norfolk, Va., led New Mexico J.C. to the national tournament in Hutchinson, Kan., where the team lost 88-87 in overtime to the eventual champion Northwest Florida State. Lee had 23 points, 11 rebounds and three assists in his final junior college game.

    You mean like UNC does in writing papers for their football players? Good idea, thanks.

    He is a shooting guard, not a point guard.

    This guy could be ACC POY next year for all y'all know. He could come in and own everyone a la Jeremy Lin style. ;)

    'wussdog'? Really? Is that some sort of insult in Chapel Hill? Or would you know?

    Sounds like a solid pick up. Losing that many players, they need some experience and a shooter.
