Leggett Waiting on UNC Offer

Travis Leggett participated in North Carolina's camp Saturday with the hopes of earning a UNC scholarship offer.

"I wish I knew exactly [the status of a scholarship offer]," said Leggett. "At the end of the camp, the running back coach [Kenny Browning] was talking to me. He said I'm in the crowd of people that they're not ready to offer yet. That's all I know."

Leggett, a 6-foot 190-pound athlete from Cerro Gordo (N.C.) West Columbus, worked the entire first practice session with the running backs.

"I think I did pretty good," said Leggett. "In the agility drills, I think I did real good. I think I impressed [Browning] during the one-on-one drills."

After lunch, Leggett headed over to DB coach Chuck Pagano and worked out with the defensive backs.

"[Pagano] wanted me to work out with him," said Leggett. "My recruiter [Sam Pittman] told me that they wanted to see me at a different position."

Leggett didn't fair so well at the new position and eventually returned to the running back unit.

"I don't think I did as good as I thought I could," said Leggett. "During one-on-ones, I did two reps and I thought that I did good. But, I didn't feel comfortable there so I just went back to the running back position at the end of the second session."

Leggett will continue to try to earn his first scholarship offer Saturday when he auditions for South Carolina at their camp.

"They want me to work out for them on Saturday, evaluate me and see how well I do and go from there," said Leggett.

Leggett will then camp at Wake Forest on Sunday. He'll also attend NC State's camp on June 19th.

Speaking of NC State, Leggett is still claiming the Wolfpack as his leader.

"Something about the Wolfpack has got me," said Leggett. "I went to their game and I experienced how their actual game is live. Plus, where I live, the majority of my county is Wolfpack fans."

According to Leggett, North Carolina and South Carolina are fighting for second place.

Regardless, he said his favorites list will sustain a shakeup when Leggett receives his first scholarship offer.
