Draft Scout Marqise Lee News
12/03/13 - 2013 ALL-PAC-12 HONORABLE MENTION (COACHES): WR Marqise Lee, Jr.,...Has been selected All-Pac 12 Honorable Mention for the 2013 college football season as voted on by the Pac-12 Head football coaches. - USC football
11/21/13 - 2014 NFL Draft: USC's Lee, Baylor's Norwood breakout on big stage...On their first play from scrimmage of the second half, Lee took a post 27-yards, sharply cutting to avoid one USC defender and dragging three others - including 6-foot-6, 265-pounder Trent Murphy - for the final few yards. After being declared down, the six-foot, 195-pound Lee emerged from the pile of humanity to emphatically pound the turf with the ball and signal "first down" to the delight of the home crowd.
When healthy, Lee is a dominant performer well worth first round consideration. Questions about his slim frame and durability will only increase, however, as Lee was again hobbled late in the game. His toughness, however, won't be questioned as a limping Lee made arguably the play of the game by hauling in a quick slant on 4th and two to extend USC's game-winning drive.
Lee missed two games this season (Arizona, Utah) due to an injury to his left knee and has been limited in several others, leading to pedestrian numbers to this point. Lee entered the showdown with Stanford having caught just 38 passes for 521 yards and two scores. By comparison, Lee had caught 98 passes for 1484 and 13 touchdowns by this time a year ago. To NFL scouts the only thing more enjoyable than watching an established star like Lee return to his playmaking ways is to see a previously unknown player emerge. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
11/21/13 - 2014 NFL Draft: USC's Lee, Baylor's Norwood breakout on big stage...On a day in which Auburn wide receiver Ricardo Louis made arguably the play of the year to preserve the Tigers' undefeated season, wideouts Marqise Lee and Levi Norwood made the night every bit as memorable. Lee told the media that he expected the USC coaching staff to "let me loose a little bit" against Stanford and they certainly did, featuring the junior at wide receiver, punt returner and pairing him with fellow pass-catcher Nelson Agholor as a kick returner.
Lee's six catches for 83 yards certainly isn't as eye-popping as some of the performances he's enjoyed the past two seasons for the Trojans but the athleticism, toughness and timing he showed in USC's 20-17 upset over Stanford won't soon be forgotten by NFL scouts. From the get-go, it was clear that the reigning Biletnkikof Award winner had regained his trademark explosiveness. While Stanford largely contained the Trojans' superstar, Lee showed his vision, agility and burst in returning a punt 20 yards against the Cardinal, as well as the body control and secure hands to haul in a two-point conversion in the first quarter to extend USC's surprising early lead to 14-7. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
11/02/13 - Finally winning at Reser Stadium after a long drought, the USC Trojans lifted interim coach Ed Orgeron to their shoulders in celebration. Southern California defeated Oregon State 31-14 Friday night in Corvallis for the first time since 2004, and in the process became bowl eligible after a rocky start to the season. Javorius Allen ran for 133 yards and three touchdowns and Marqise Lee returned from a knee injury and had five catches for 105 yards and a score for Southern California (6-3, 3-2 Pac-12. ) Cody Kessler threw for 247 yards and a touchdown and Silas Redd ran for 140 yards. It was the third win in four games under Orgeron, who took over when the Trojans dismissed Lane Kiffin on Sept. 29 after opening the season 3-2.
"Great job of coming into a hostile environment and really never letting it affect us as much as it has in the past," said Orgeron, who also took a turn conducting the USC marching band after the victory. "There was a belief in the locker room, at halftime, during the game." Oregon State's Sean Mannion threw for 277 yards and a touchdown, but also threw three uncharacteristic interceptions in the loss, the second straight for the Beavers (6-3, 4-2) after a six-game winning streak. Two of Mannion's interceptions came in the red zone, and Oregon State had a field goal blocked and missed another. "That's too much," coach Mike Riley said of the errors. "You're not going to overcome that." - AP Sports
10/25/13 - USC WR Lee out for Utah game...All-American USC wide receiver Marqise Lee will not play in Saturday's game against Utah because of a left knee injury, ESPN reported Friday. Lee missed much of the second half of last Saturday's loss to Notre Dame after aggravating the injury, which he first sustained in a Sept. 28 game against Arizona State. Lee has 32 catches for 403 yards and one touchdown in six games this season.
USC has injury issues throughout its roster, but particularly at receiver. The Troans are hoping wide receivers Darreus Rogers and De'Von Flournoy can play despite injuries. Wide receiver Nelson Agholor (ribs) is questionable. Walk-on wide receivers Christian Tober, Cody Skene, George Katrib and Robby Kolanz, a former intern in the USC sports information department, may play against Utah. USC also will be without its top three tight ends: Xavier Grimble (ankle), Randall Telfer (knee) and Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick. Running back Justin Davis will miss the rest of the seasons following ankle surgery. - The Sports Xchange
