Leslie Holding Off Until Spring

With the first signing period rapidly approaching, a number of prospects are coming to decisions. Travis Leslie, on the other hand, appears to be waiting until the spring to make his decision.

It looks like one of the best athletes in high school basketball will wait out the recruiting process a little longer. Travis Leslie, of Columbia (Ga.) High, will likely put off his decision until the spring.

"Right now he's just kind of uncertain," Georgia Stars program director Norm Parker said. "I really don't see anything happening until a little closer to the second signing period."

At this point the 6-foot-5, 185-pound wing, who is ranked as the No. 22 small forward in the 2008 class, is getting interest from a variety of schools.

"Penn State has asked him to visit," Parker said. "North Carolina, he said they have not come at him hard yet. He's not real sure on there intentions. Florida State likes him. Clemson has talked to him a little bit and Oklahoma is still there."

LSU is another school that is involved, according to Parker. The next step for Leslie is to start hashing out some visit plans. Penn State, who just recently got involved, is among the schools vying hard for a visit.

"He is going to take some visits and kind of get a feel for some of these schools. Even with him signing late, he maybe not use all of his visits. He doesn't want to use them up and then someone came at him late."

Leslie, a four star prospect on Scout.com, doesn't have any specific dates set up for his official visits.
