Drexel wing Damion Lee has become a hot commodity on the recruiting trail since he decided to become a graduate transfer this offseason.

A 6-foot-6 wing, Lee was the CAA’s leading scorer this past season, averaging 21.4 points before breaking his right hand in February. The Baltimore native took to Twitter to announce his final five on Sunday.

According to a report from Evan Daniels of Scout.com, Lee already has some official visits set to Arizona (April 17-19) and Louisville (19-21). Gonzaga will also come and see Lee on April 22nd.

In addition to being a strong scorer, Lee averaged 6.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.5 steals per game while shooting 43 percent from the field and 38 percent from 3-point range. As a graduate transfer, Lee is eligible to play in 2015-16 and will be a major boost to whichever program he chooses.

After winning six straight games to rebound from a slow start to conference play, Drexel has lost three straight games with the most recent being an 83-73 overtime loss at Northeastern on Saturday. And what makes matters even worse for head coach Bruiser Flint is the fact that he also lost his leading scorer in that game.

Damion Lee, who missed most of last season with a torn ACL, suffered a broken right hand in Saturday’s defeat. The news was announced by the school Sunday afternoon. Lee, who’s averaging 21.4 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game, plays just over 38 minutes per game for the Dragons.

Against Northeastern, Lee played all 45 minutes and tallied 30 points and grabbed five rebounds.

Lee is an incredibly important player for a team that in conference games is ranked ninth (out of ten teams) in scoring offense and dead last in field goal percentage. Without Lee, Drexel’s hopes of getting hot in next month’s conference tournament take a significant hit.

Report: Wake Forest transfer finds a new spot in the CAA

Wake Forest transfer Miles Overton has found a new home, as the sophmore guard will be heading to Drexel. The news of Overton’s transfer was first reported by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

The 6-foot-4 Overton is the son of former NBA veteran Doug Overton. During his sophomore season with the Demon Deacons, the younger Overton averaged 5.1 points and 1.7 rebounds per game.

In the CAA, Overton should be able to make more of an impact than he did playing in the ACC. He was only playing 12.7 minutes a game at Wake Forest and shooting 32 percent from the field.

Due to NCAA transfer regulations, Overton will sit out the rest of the 2014-15 season and likely be eligible after the first semester.
