A.C. Leonard is One to Watch

Jacksonville (FL) Jean Ribault High School superstar A.C. Leonard will have plenty of options in 2011. Leonard is one of the top athletes in the state of Florida for the class of 2011. He was the talk among Florida recruits during the summer months as he was very impressive regardless of where he lined up at the Florida camp.

A.C. Leonard is a true "bigger" wide receiver type at 6-3 and 220-pounds but maintains the athletic ability of a 5'11 180-pound skill player.

Leonard could project at a number of positions at the next level. Wide receiver or tight end are possible destinations or could he make the move to the defensive side of the ball and play linebacker or defensive end? A true multi-talented player that because of his numerous abilities to play multiple positions will make him one of the most heavily recruited players in the state of Florida for the class of 2011.

Ribault has one of the most balanced offenses in the Jacksonville area. As well as Leonard, Javon Bell is one of the top playmakers on the team. Bell grabs most of the headlines but make no mistake about it Leonard's time will come with national recognition before it's all said and done.

Leonard has early offers from Florida, Central Florida and Florida International.

"I have 17 sacks, 49 tackles, two blocked punts, one blocked extra point, three forced fumbles (one recovery) with three rushing touchdowns and three receiving touchdowns."
