Tuesday, HBU Head Men's Basketball Coach Ron Cottrell announced the addition of Darius Lee to a National Letter of Intent to join the Huskies' basketball team.
"We cap this year's recruiting class with the addition of another true winner both on and off the court," Cottrell said. "Darius Lee is a highly accomplished player, who earned First-Team NJCAA All-America and Conference and Region Player of the Year awards, while leading his SUNY Sullivan team to a pandemic-shortened season record of 28-2."
Lee, 6'6", 230-pound wing from Harlem, NY, played two seasons at SUNY Sullivan and prepped at St. Raymond High School for Boys.
