Prior to No. 23 USC and No. 22 UCLA taking the Coliseum field on Saturday, the seniors on the Trojan roster will be recognized in what will be their final home game.
It is typically a tradition reserved for seniors, but with NFL level juniors also on the roster, it may be a final home game for them as well.
Maybe not for Marqise Lee, however.
While speaking with reporters following practice on Tuesday, Lee said he has yet to make a decision on whether or not he will forgo his senior season.
The 2012 Biletnikoff winner said he hasn’t given the decision any thought, and has yet to discuss it with his family.
Lee sits in second place behind Robert Woods on the USC all-time receptions list. His production in 2013 has seen a sizable drop off due in part to Lee battling injuries for much of the season, and dropped passes.
After suffering an apparent bone bruise in the Trojan victory over No. 8 Stanford, Lee didn’t make the trip for the Trojans’ game against Colorado.
During his Sunday conference call, interim Coach Ed Orgeron said he was “sure” Lee would play against UCLA.
As it stands, Lee would need 18 receptions to surpass Woods on the receptions list.
Despite the decline in production, it would come as a surprise should Lee not enter the 2014 NFL Draft.
