Tuesday afternoon the 6-foot-3, 165-pound guard out of Mooresville (N.C.) Senior, committed to Alan Major and Charlotte.
"They made me priority from day one and I think it's a good fit for me," Lester told Scout.com.
"I just came back last weekend," he said. "It was good. They showed me around campus and I played with the team a little bit."
Lester played on the summer circuit with the CP3 All-stars. During his junior season he averaged 18 points, five assists and five steals.
Lester becomes Charlotte's first commitment in the 2012 class.
