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 the 2010 class, Raleigh (NC) Word of God's C.J. Leslie showcased his considerable talents at this year's Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions.
At 6-foot-8 and 200 pounds, Leslie has the ability to put the ball on the floor, finish at the rim, drill jumpshots, 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 standouts in North Carolina, regardless of class, and a top talent nationally in the 2010 class. Scout.com has rated Leslie a five-star prospect and the No. 13 player in the class of 2010.
In the 2008 Tournament of Champions, Leslie started at power forward for the World Wide Renegades Black. Wearing No. 15, he impacted games on both ends of the floor and was a major reason why his team advanced to the 17-under Select Division Playoffs.
Here's your chance to catch the NC State commitment in action!
