Deer Valley High School five-star forward Marcus Lee committed to John Calipari and the Kentucky Wildcats over the California Golden Bears.

Deer Valley High School forward Marcus Lee officially committed to the Kentucky Wildcats on Wednesday, after a visit to campus caused him to cancel his visit with the California Golden Bears.

Attending a midnight madness event for the Wildcats and head coach John Calipari, the commitment wasn't surprising with Lee having only the Golden Bears and UK on his list of landing spots.

He joins a recruiting class that is already ranked No. 1 by Rivals, ESPN and Scout. That class includes guards Aaron and Andrew Harrison, twins familiar with Lee who likely helped sway his decision. Forward Derek Willis and wing James Young make up the rest of Kentucky's 2013 class.

Lee, a 6'9, 220-pound big man from Antioch, Calif., is listed as high as No. 18 and as low as No. 38 from the three major recruiting services.

Lee averaged 13.9 points, 13.9 rebounds and 9.1 blocks per game during his junior season.
