Tavis Lee Commits To West Virginia
Lee (6-3, 225 lbs., Martinsburg HS/Martinsburg, W. Va.) has been a hard-charging defensive end in high school, but the Mountaineers envision him as an outside linebacker.

Lee helped the Bulldogs to a Class AAA state championship last year with a 14-0 record and the Eastern Panhandle powerhouse is again undefeated (11-0) heading into the quarterfinal round of the state playoffs.
Last year Lee led a Martinsburg defense that allowed just 7.6 points a game by recording a team-high 114 tackles, 24 tackles for loss and 11 sacks in 14 games. Through the regular season this year, Lee again is guiding a dynamic Bulldog defense that is allowing just 8.9 points a game. He was credited with 50 tackles and 5.5 sacks in the regular season.
Lee is the second in-state product to commit to WVU, joining Fairmont Senior defensive end Dante Stills. West Virginia has two other linebackers who are part of this class – Josh Chandler from McKinley High in Canton, Ohio, and Charlie Benton from Butler (Kansas) Community College.
