Juco Wide Receiver Enjoys Auburn Visit

Junior college wide receiver Quantavius Leslie talks about his official visit to Auburn.

Raymond, Miss.—One of the top junior college wide receivers in the country, LSU commitment Quantavius Leslie took an official visit to Auburn over the weekend to check out the Tigers take on Texas A&M. Checking out the Tiger Walk and the atmosphere surrounding the game, Leslie said everything about the trip went well for him and his family.

"It went pretty good," Leslie said. "I really enjoyed myself down there this weekend. I really got to see a lot. It was a great atmosphere. The fan base is tremendous. They are really dedicated. Even though the season isn't going like they want it they are still dedicated down there.

"It was nice just to get a chance to hang around the players," he added. "They treated me like family. Just hanging around the players and coaches and being treated like family even though I'm not committed, that was nice."

Originally signing with West Virginia out of Callaway High in Lagrange, Ga. before ending up in junior college, the 6-4, 200 Leslie was a frequent visitor to Auburn along with his teammates for passing camps. Longtime friends with Quan Bray and Ricky Parks, he said there are several guys that he knows and got to hang out with over the weekend. He said those relationships are big for him as he continues to look more and more at Auburn.

"It was fun," Leslie said. "I haven't seen those guys in a while. Just to re-unite with them was good. I met Greg (Robinson) for the first time last night and he's a real cool dude. Reuben Foster is a commitment, but I'm pretty cool with him.

"It does a lot for me," he added. "Those guys are telling me to come here. It's a family. I trust them because I have played with them before. We have been close. I feel like I can trust them and they can trust me."

With 22 catches for 450 yards and six touchdowns this season, Leslie is the big play threat that teams are looking for in the SEC to stretch the field vertically. Because of that he said he's still hearing from many different teams, but right now his list remains at two.

"I'm still committed to LSU right now," Leslie said. "I have to talk things over with my dad and see how things go. I'm going to take my official to LSU on Nov. 10. Auburn and LSU are the only two I have set up."
