After standing out at the UCLA pro day, Lee Pitts the cornerback with great bloodlines landed at the Chargers local day.
Lee Pitts (5’11” 200lb Defensive Back) is from Oaks Christian High School in Westlake, CA. He recently graduated from the University of Sioux Falls with his MBA, and had a very solid pro day at UCLA. He was the only D2 prospect at the UCLA pro day in front of all 32 NFL teams.
Pitts has great bloodlines.
Lee Pitts is the third generation in his family to play college football. His grandfather, Elijah Pitts, was the starting running back for Vince Lombardi’s Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl I. After his playing career, Elijah went on to coach four Super Bowls for the Buffalo Bills. Elijah went to an all-black college, Philander Smith, when he was drafted into the NFL.
Ron Pitts, Lee’s father, was one of the country’s top football prospects coming out high school. He decided to attend UCLA and started in two Rose Bowls and a Fiesta Bowl under Coach Terry Donahue. He was drafted to the Buffalo Bills and later played for Green Bay where he became a second-generation Packer.
Lee is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his grandfather and father, but understands he has to prove his worth. He is definitely a small schooler to keep an eye on! Check out his Senior Year film below!
