Tedrick Lee, a 2026 defensive back, travelled to Louisville last week to see the Cardinals from Homestead, Florida. This was the first chance to see what all the excitement was about when UofL offered a scholarship to the 6-foot-1, 180-pound safety at South Dade High School in December.


While in the Ville, Lee had the opportunity to see the Cardinals in action, speak with the coaches, take a tour of the facilities, and much more. He was impressed by the encounter.

“Lee told Cardinal Authority it was an amazing experience.” “It was a joy to travel up to Kentucky and see their culture; the state boasts breathtaking beauty. The campus was really well-kept and orderly.

Observing the squad engage in various drills and interacting with the coaching staff throughout practice was enlightening for Lee.


“Practice wise, I think they have a type of drive and hunger when they practice,” Lee explained. In addition to being very thorough and disciplined, it was also very intense. The athletes benefited greatly from the instructors’ wealth of experience and understanding. It therefore provided me with an opportunity to grow and develop as well.”


Lee racked up four interceptions, eleven pass breakups, and 57 tackles this season. For the previous two seasons, Lee was chosen for the All-Dade team.

Lee had an early offer from Louisville, and he also received offers from Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M, Florida Atlantic, Nebraska, and Arkansas.
