East Bay big man Marcus Lee is likely to commit to the Kentucky Wildcats over the California Golden Bears when he makes his decision at his school tomorrow.

The California Golden Bears will probably lose out on one of their prized local targets for their 2013 basketball recruiting class. Marcus Lee was apparently wowed by his visit to Kentucky, has cancelled his visit to Cal this weekend, and is all set to make a decision Wednesday. It would be a huge surprise if the choice wasn't the Wildcats.

The Antioch power forward is considered a consensus top 30 recruit by all the major recruiting services and is also a big man. Lee made a visit to Kentucky this weekend for their midnight madness and it apparently left a big enough impression on him to rush ahead with a quick decision to go Big Blue.

Cal has already landed three great targets this class in combo guard Sam Singer, shooting guard Jordan Matthews, and the big prize in local Vallejo small forward Jabari Bird. Cal will likely now target Torren Jones as their primary big man target, or maybe even try and make a huge surprise and grab Aaron Gordon instead.
