BYU Basketball has extended a scholarship offer to 4-star recruit Kolby Lee, a senior out of Rocky Mountain High School in Meridian, Idaho. Lee, listed as a 6’ 9”, 260 lb Center, sat out the first 10 games of the 2015-16 season with a stress fracture in his foot, but went on to average 14.8 points per game, 8.9 rebounds, and 1 block. He holds current offers from nine other Division I schools, including Utah State, Boise State, and WCC foe Portland.
Last month, Lee participated in the National Basketball Players Association Top 100 High School Basketball Camp held at the University of Virginia. The camp instructs the top high school players in the country both on the court and off, with classes on character and life skills in addition to their time in the gym.

Lee’s Rocky Mountain team lost its first round game to eventual runner-up Madison in the Idaho 5A State Tournament, but won the Consolation prize, finishing with a 19-7 record. Kolby received Second Team All-State honor as a Junior, and is expected to be an anchor for his Rocky Mountain team as a Senior. A member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Lee will graduate in 2017.
