Nebraska defensive back recruit Eric Lee has been showing his versatility this season with Valor Christian High School (Highlands Ranch, Colorado), the top-ranked team in Colorado's largest class.
Lee, an outstanding player on the defensive side of the ball, has been a threat at running and catching the ball, and now throwing.
Lee found his quarterback Ben Waters wide-open for a 22-yard touchdown on a double reverse as Valor Christian defeated Overland 35-10 on Friday.
Valor Christian has won 26 straight games against in-state schools and 50 of its past 51.
