2011: Listed as a starter at right cornerback on preseason depth chart. In the spring, he was selected as Eastern’s co-most improved defensive player.

2010: Played in 11 games on special teams and as a backup cornerback. After leading 28-10 at intermission against Portland State (10/30/10), the Eagles turned a blocked punt by Darriell Beaumonte into a recovery for a touchdown by Lee to increase the advantage to 18. Lee finished with a career-high four tackles, a pass broken up and a forced fumble against the Vikings. He helped the Eagle defense rank first nationally in interceptions (total of 26) and turnovers gained (47), and finish sixth nationally in red zone defense, as it allowed just 38 scores in 58 opponent trips inside the Eagle 20-yard line.
