Xavier Lee has all summer to concentrate on conditioning and honing his skills before adding classes to his workload come fall.

The Daytona Beach Seabreeze product said he is holding off until August to begin classes at Florida State but will be on campus sometime in June or July to partake in conditioning sessions.

"I'm going to get up there sometime. Right now I'm just not sure when," Lee told theterritory.org.

"For now I'm following the book from here and running with the track team.

Lee (4.59 40) competes in the 400 and the 4x100 relay for the Sandcrabs. Chances of making State are good.

"We're not too bad," he laughed.

The talented signal-caller isn't worried about the competition he will encounter in the coming months. Lee, Drew Weatherford and Wyatt Sexton should all factor in the dual for the backup spot behind Chris Rix.

"I play football to compete," he said.

"I didn't walk into the starting job at Seabreeze. Having good competition makes you better."

Confident in his abilities, Lee has a simple plan before heading to Tallahassee.

"Learn the plays. Get faster. Get stronger."

Lee set Florida state high school records for passing completions (549), yards (9,083) and touchdown passes (98) in his four-year career at Seabreeze. His announcement to attend Florida State next season brought a standing ovation from teammates, family and friends at his team's football banquet a few months back.
