BATON ROUGE - A day after being selected in the first round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, LSU signee Zach Lee arrived on campus and enrolled in school for the summer session.
LSU head coach Les Miles said Lee is scheduled to attend class on Wednesday. Lee is slated to begin LSU's summer conditioning program on Wednesday as well.
"Zach wants to come to LSU, get a degree and play football and baseball for the Tigers," Miles said. "I met with Zach and his parents today and I think that they are looking at LSU as a great opportunity both academically and athletically.
"Zach is an outstanding student and he's excited about the college experience."
Lee, a quarterback, was selected with the 28th overall pick by the Dodgers on Monday night. Lee recently finished a high school baseball season that saw him win 11 games with a 2.15 ERA and 90 strikeouts.
As a senior on the football field, Lee passed for 2,565 yards and 31 touchdowns for McKinney High School. He also added nine rushing touchdowns in 2009.
