Marcus Lee trims list, UW not included

It’s difficult to know how much Washington invested in its pursuit of Marcus Lee, a consensus four-star prospect as determined by the major recruiting services.
When Nigel Williams-Goss committed to the Huskies, he included Lee among a list of friends he was going to recruit to UW. However, many scouting analysts suggested several other schools had a longer, stronger relationship with the 6-9 center from Antioch, Calif.
His stock soared this summer and today Lee trimmed his list to seven schools: UCLA, California, Kentucky, Kansas, Louisville, Duke, and Indiana.
Jerry Meyer of 247Sports broke the news this morning via twitter.
Washington remains in good shape to secure a strong 2013 class. The Huskies are losing three seniors and with the addition of Williams-Goss should have at least two scholarships assuming the roster remains the same.
Here’s a look at possible UW targets, including rankings from ESPN, Rivals and Scout. In parenthesis are rankings from ESPN’s 100 and Rivals 150 lists.
