His resume is impressive to say the least, having been involved with the placement of over 500 players at the NCAA and CIS level.   Here is a list of current kids from the team who has been placed in an educational institution this past season:

His personal relationships with every current coach at the NCAA and CIS levels is a big reason why they continue to want to deal with him and the players he represents.

Lee has advised many players and parents the "do's and don'ts" as the athletes get older and get ready to make the jump.
