Jabo lands at Temple

Dillon running back and 2011 WPDE Zoneman winner Jabo Lee has enrolled at Temple University, according to multiple media reports. Lee may be redshirted for his freshman year in Philadelphia as he continues to improve on an ACL injury that hampered much of his senior season with the Wildcats.
Lee gave an early verbal commitment to East Carolina, but made a late switch to the Tennessee Volunteers just days before National Signing Day. Recruited by running backs coach Jay Graham, Lee and the Volunteers parted ways last week. Graham left the Vols for Florida State shortly after Signing Day. Lee was a late academic qualifier which played a role in him never arriving on the Knoxville campus.
Lee's high school coach, Jackie Hayes, was upset with the way Tennessee handled the situation. He told the GoVolsXtra.com that he felt the Vols left Jabo hung out to dry. "Don't you think it would be better if the head coach or running backs coach called me up and said, 'We've got a problem here?' ", Hayes said in the article. "There wouldn't be no use for (Tennessee recruiters) to come back to Dillon". You can read the entire article from GoVolsXtra HERE. Butch Jones is in his first season as head coach at Tenneseee.
The Wildcats have produced three current South Carolina Gamecocks - offensive linemen Bryce King and DJ Park along with wide receiver Kwinton Smith and rising sophomore quarterback Avery McCall has already picked up numerous Division I offers including Tennessee.
