Name: C.J. Leslie
Hometown: Raleigh, North Carolina
High School: Word of God Christian Academy
Position: Combo Forward
Considered one of the top prospects in the 2010 class, Leslie put on a show at the 2009 Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions, and it started with a strong showing against LaQuinton Ross, Rodney Hood, Demarco Cox, and Jackson MBA Hoops.
"Some of the athletic plays he makes are just silly," wrote Scout.com National Recruiting Director Dave Telep after watching Leslie in action. "Take the blocked shot he caught with both hands at the rim. The first half of his game Friday night was as elite an effort as we've seen him have.
"He's communicating and demonstrating leadership abilities in his final go round on the circuit. Few play above the rim as much as he does."
Rated a five-star prospect and the No. 12 player in the country by Scout.com, Leslie is an elite run-jump athlete and has really improved his perimeter game and ballhandling.
With continued development, Leslie could mature into a legitimate small forward down the road.
"I've been in the gym four days a week," he stated. "That's how it's going to stay."
