Name: C.J. Leslie
Hometown: Raleigh, North Carolina
High School: Word of God Christian Academy
Position: Power Forward
Notes: Considered one of the top prospects in North Carolina's loaded 2010 class, Raleigh Word of God's C.J. Leslie showcased his considerable talents at this year's Carolina Challenge.
At 6-foot-8 and 200 pounds, Leslie has the ability to put the ball on the floor, finish at the rim, drill jump shots, create for his teammates from the wing, and be a presence in the paint.
As he continues to mature on the court and expand his game, Leslie could eventually project as a small forward, but for now he has the makings of a talented face-up power forward.
An early verbal to NC State, the Wolfpack has landed one of the top players in North Carolina... regardless of class.
Here's your chance to catch the NC State commitment in action!
Carolina Challenge Scouting Report: Among the highlights of the day was Leslie's baseline drive that led to a nasty one-handed slam. To go with the dunk, the 6-foot-8 forward showed great ball skills and an ability to attack the rim off the bounce. He also managed to hit a few mid-range jumpers. One move we were particularly impressed with was when he split a double team at the top of the key and dished off an assist to an open teammate." -- Scout.com Recruiting Analyst Evan Daniels
