Orlando DL Has Canes on List

Finding a top notch defensive tackle is tough in today's game. Today we profile Abre Leggins from Orlando Evans high school.

Player: defensive tackle Abre Leggins

School: Orlando (Fla.) Evans

Size: 6-4 and 270

Speed: he claims to have run a 4.88 recently.

Academics: He claims a 3.1 GPA and has not yet reported a test.

Age: 208 months

Junior Year: While playing next to Iowa-bound Vernon Jackson, Leggins finished the season with 40 tackles, six sacks, and two caused fumbles.

College Choices: "It's Georgia, Miami, FSU, Florida, and Michigan right now," Leggins said.

The skinny: Evans High had one of the best interior defensive lines in the entire state last season. Sometimes it was Jackson hogging up the double teams, while it was Leggins at other times. Built much differently than Jackson, Leggins has the size/speed combo that a lot of college coaches will be looking for. He's a solid student, a good athlete, and will likely dominate from the inside as a senior. He enters the spring evaluation period as one of the top overall prospects in the greater Orlando area.
