Lee backs away from pledge to UW

Wisconsin received word of its third decommitment in the 2015 class since Paul Chryst's hire early Thursday morning when Brandyn Lee announced that he had elected to reopen his recruitment.
Hey just want to let everyone know that I decided to decommit from the University of Wisconsin. I'm open to any schools right now.— Brandyn Lee (@brandynDlee) January 22, 2015
A 6-foot, 168-pound receiver from West Hills (CA) Chaminade, Lee confirmed the news with, citing the philosophy of the new coaching staff.
"With the new coaches and their philosophy, it was not a good fit for me," Lee said. "Now I am looking to pursue other options. Right now I am open to all schools."
Lee, who committed to the Badgers this summer under former head coach Gary Andersen, spoke to Chryst in late December and seemed confident in his commitment.
"I talked to coach Chryst today and it was great talking to him for the first time," Lee said in a previous interview. "We got off on a great foot and I think the program is going to be better with coach Chryst there right now.
"It was a great conversation. We just talked about how my visit to Wisconsin went and getting the application in. It was really just about getting to know each other and about our families. It was just getting our relationship started."
During his recruitment, Lee also fielded offers from Washington State, Fresno State and Nevada. He has four remaining official visits, though no trips have been scheduled thus far.
With Lee off the board, Wisconsin has just commitment from a receiver (Andrew James) in the current cycle. The new staff has shown recent interest in Freddie Simmons (North Carolina State commit) and Obe Fortune, among others.
