Illinois Football Recruiting: Toledo Offers Elijah Lee

2014 outside linebacker/weak-side defensive end Elijah Lee received an offer from the Toledo Rockets on February 11th.

The Rockets are the first team to extend an offer towards him. However, it is projected that he is heavily interested in the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Illinois Fighting Illini.

Lee is a 6’3″, 210 pound linebacker from Blue Springs, Missouri. He is currently a junior at Blue Springs High School.

The Blue Springs Wildcats won the state championship of the Class 6 Missouri State Playoffs. They defeated Howell High School, 42-3.

As a junior in 2012, Lee recorded 72 tackles, 33.5 tackles for loss, 15.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 5th in the state of Missouri and 27th among outside linebackers by 247Sports.

Lee is scheduled to attend the Junior Days at Kansas (February 16th) and Missouri (March 2nd).
