2003 Media Guide: Maurice “Moe” Lee is a reserve wide receiver with outstanding quickness and speed … appeared briefly in the Kent State and San Jose State games last year, but did not have any receptions … talented athlete who plays on the special teams … has seen action in eight games as a Buckeye.

2002 Season: Moved back to wide receiver after a year at cornerback.

2002 Media Guide: Moves back to wide receiver this year after a year at cornerback … talented athlete with outstanding speed and quickness … has been compared to former OSU standout
Terry Glenn in terms of talent, but up to this point has not shown the consistency the coaching staff is looking for … has the athletic ability to make a name for himself on the special teams and will get every chance to do just that in the fall … sat out two seasons because of academics, so last year was an adjustment for him.

2001 Season: Reserve cornerback and member of the special teams … saw brief action in six games and had one tackle (against Akron) … came to Ohio State as a wide receiver, but was moved to cornerback in the spring.

2001 Media Guide: Mo Lee is one of the more interesting stories of spring ball … started out the spring at wide receiver but then flip-flopped with cornerback Bam Childress two-thirds of the way through spring practice and made an immediate impact at cornerback (as Childress did at receiver) … very much in contention for a starting spot on the right side … coaches like his competitive attitude, quick feet, quickness and cover ability … seems to have an instinctive knack for coverage and could be a diamond in the rough … sat out the past two seasons, but showed no signs of the layoff in the spring.

2000 Season: Did not play due to academic problems.

2000 Media Guide: Did not play last year because of academic deficiencies but is eligible to play this fall … coaches are anxious to see him in action … a high school quarterback, he will be a wide receiver for OSU … exciting athlete with tremendous quickness and cat-quick moves … will get a long, hard look in the fall … had 1,600 all-purpose yards as a senior, rushing for 500 yards, throwing for 750 and accounting for another 460 in receiving yardage … had even better numbers as a junior, accounting for 2,200 all-purpose yards, including 1,030 rushing … ranked as the No. 1 athlete in the state by the Ohio Football Recruiting News … the son of Diane Lee and Kenny White.

1999 Media Guide: High school option quarterback who was recruited as a wide receiver … had 500 passing yards and 750 rushing yards as a senior and caught 18 passes for an additional 426 yards … had over 2,200 all-purpose yards as a junior, including 1,030 rushing yards … No. 9 rated player in the Midwest by the Detroit Free Press … Ranked as the No. 1 “athlete” in the state by The Ohio Football Recruiting News entering his senior year … No. 15 prospect in the state by Bill Kurelic … The son of Diane Lee and Kenny White.
