Anders Lee

It's always nice to receive reports from the field. This morning it was an email from Schwalbach, who has been watching some high school football with Toohey lately. It involves a standout Twin Cities high school athlete who was apparently headed for a Division 1 hockey scholarship, but now thinks he might want to play football.

Hey Taps,

Toohey and I went to a first-round playoff game (Edina vs. Mpls Southwest) and I’ve actually seen this Anders Lee kid play three time now. They play the spread at Edina so he puts up some pretty ridiculous numbers, especially running the ball (like 200 yds/game).

He forwarded me this nugget about him. I find it interesting given the current QB situation at UW. I’m not totally sold on the kid throwing the ball but he’s definitely a great athlete. I wonder if Bielema and Eaves can get together to make it work somehow (he’s a damn good hockey player)?

Toohey's original email, from a Star-Trib account of the game:

Lee, who was presumed to have a future in college hockey, appears headed for more football. Before the season he was all but set on playing hockey at Harvard, but football coaches have noticed the kind of autumn he is having. He has been offered scholarships by the Gophers, Northern Illinois, North Dakota State and Minnesota State Mankato, and been in close contact with other schools, Wisconsin among them.

I don't think there's any way a kid can play both Division 1 football and hockey, but it looks like this kid would be worth getting for at least one of them. If I were him, I'd go play hockey at Harvard!

Thanks for the tip guys. If anyone else happens to get first-hand accounts of prospective Badger recruits, by all means send them in.

BTW, that sure is some nice-looking facility Edina has, isn't it?

Here is some interesting info. Eaves introduced Lee to Coach Bielema at Camp Randall during spring work-outs. Lee is currently in the process of sending his entire film to Wisconsin for review. He will pass on hockey to play for a major D-1 football program. Iowa and Minnesota are reportedly in the mix among Big Ten schools.

Here is a passing highlight from last year on Lee.

Thanks for the link. It'll be interesting to track this.

Interesting. I had no idea that he might be that serious about pursuing football. Also interesting the Eaves took him to Bielema.

While I would think Minnesota would have a leg up on him seeing as though they're the hometown school and they run the spread, I would think he would be a decent get for the Badgers.

By what I've read, he's a great student and a strong peer leader. Always nice to have those guys in the program.

The visit to Camp Randall and Coach Bielema was part of the tour of the Campus by Eaves. From what I have heard, Wisconsin would have an edge over Minnesota for football.

With MN having Weber for two more years, the highly touted kid who didn't qualify this year but is rumored to be there next fall (Marqueis Gray) and highly touted Moses Alipate in the class of '09, they would seem to be pretty stocked.
