Lee suited up in the US developmental Spring League in 2021 and previously was a member of the Indoor Football League’s Columbus Lions from 2017 until 2018. The quarterback also dressed for three regular season games with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2016 after signing in July of that season.
After transferring from Georgia Tech to James Madison for his final two years of eligibility, Lee suited up in 21 games and threw for 5,652 yards and 51 touchdowns. He also added 1,640 yards and 17 majors on 292 carries while earning the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Year award.
