2012 Intro: Ricardo Ledo

Ricardo Ledo, a 6-foot-5, 170-pound shooting guard, is building his profile on a national scale. The 2012 wing already has a dozen scholarship offers.

It hasn't taken Ricardo Ledo long to build his name on the national recruiting scene. After some strong showing the past two summers, college coaches are banging down his door.

Offers are on the table from Syracuse, Rhode Island, UMass, BC, Providence, Baylor, Indiana, Virginia, Georgia Tech, Connecticut, Miami and Florida. While Virginia Tech, Kansas and Villanova are also recruiting him.

"Basically it all started last summer in Florida at the Florida Showcase," Ledo told Scout.com. "It all started leading up to Florida last summer. I played good against the best competition."

"To have all of these schools interested has been good," the Barrington (R.I.) St. Andrews standout added. "It's what you imagine when you're a kid to have a bunch of schools wanting you."

Although the process has started early, Ledo isn't diving into it too quickly. He's currently weighing his options and listening to the schools early pitches.

"I like [the process]," Ledo said. "It's going to get to a point where I'm going to have to narrow it down, but I'm still in the process where I'm seeing what schools are out there. I'm no where close to making a decision."

Ledo has spent time on three college campuses already. He's visited Connecticut, Boston College and Providence. According to Ledo, he's especially gotten to know the Friars program well.

"I kind of know my hometown school, Providence, because it's close by and I've been to a couple of games and I've seen their facilities," he said.

Ledo's sophomore season is off to a strong start. He's been forced into a leadership role right away and he's playing a handful of positions.

"One of our other good players went down, so I had to take over the load of the scoring," Ledo said. "I think I'm playing good. I'm running a lot at the point guard. I'm used to scoring, but I'm running that some too."

St. Andrews is currently 6-1 on the season and they'll be tested Wednesday night when they take on Winchendon.
