What They Are Saying

"He'll play wherever you want. If you want him to score, he'll score. If you tell him just to distribute the ball and not take a single shot, he won't. He's extremely coachable." - Maryville High School Coach Rodney Nelson

"I'll tell him when he's shooting too much. We need him. That's what he does. Lee Humphrey is a very good three-point shooter. Do what you do and do it well. Be aggressive. I have enough confidence in Lee that he'll take good shots and he'll make good decisions." - Florida head coach Billy Donovan
