Early years

Lee starred in both football and baseball at St. Ignatius College Preparatory in San Francisco. He was a three-year all-league quarterback in high school, but focused much of his time on baseball, limiting his Division I football scholarship offers out of high school. Lee chose Nebraska after also receiving strong recruiting interest from Oklahoma, Fresno State and Mississippi State among others.

College career

Lee played two seasons at the City College of San Francisco. He had a standout 2006 campaign, with more than 3,400 passing yards and 35 touchdowns, while completing 64 percent of his passes. Lee's performance led City College of San Francisco to a 10-2 record and an appearance in the California junior college title game. The City College of San Francisco offense averaged nearly 40 points per game with Lee at QB. Lee was ranked as the nation's top junior college quarterback by Rivals.com, Scout.com and SuperPrep Magazine before choosing to play at Nebraska. He redshirted his first year at Nebraska in 2007. In 2008, he completed one pass for five yards and rushed for 17 yards. In 2009, Lee passed for 2,143 yds, completing 59% of his passes and rushing for 171 yards. He started 12 games for the Cornhuskers in 2009. By season's end, Lee had guided his team to a Holiday Bowl win and a #14 national ranking. In 2010, he began the season as the starter but was eventually beat out by redshirt freshman Taylor Martinez. In his three years at Nebraska, Lee played in 21 games, throwing for 2,250 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Professional career
