Kentucky has spent a lot of time recruiting in Florida this off-season. One player who has taken notice is Coral Reef High prospect Julian Leslie. Leslie holds a Kentucky offer along with a few others.

Julian Leslie has picked up scholarship offers from Kentucky, Florida Atlantic, Western Michigan and Tulane. He's also hearing from Western Kentucky, Florida International, Cincinnati, South Florida and UCF.

"I talk with Florida International the most," said Leslie.

But Leslie is still very high on Kentucky and plans to visit Kentucky this summer.

"Kentucky is on the top of my list," he said.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound defensive end is obviously going to have to get stronger for the next level, but what does he bring to the table right now?

"I consider my quickness and speed as my strengths," he said. "I am trying to improve my hips, technique, coverage, speed and strength," he said.

Leslie is not only a solid defensive end, but he also plays tight end and, surprisingly, he punts the ball. As a punter, Leslie averages 38 yards per kick.
