After big bowl game, Marqise Lee says he’s undecided on the draft

USC wide receiver Marqise Lee looked NFL-ready in leading the Trojans to a bowl victory over Fresno State on Saturday, but he says he has not made any decisions.

Lee said after the game that he’ll make his decision about the 2014 NFL draft within the next two weeks.

It makes sense for Lee to take some time to consider his options, but it seems highly unlikely that he’d return to school. Lee has first-round talent, and he probably would have been chosen in the first round of this year’s draft if not for the NFL rule requiring players to be three years out of high school before they can enter the draft. Lee wasn’t eligible for the 2013 NFL draft, but expect his name to be called in 2014.

Lee caught seven passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns as USC finished its season with a 45-20 win.
