"Syracuse is the leader for Leslie right now," according to Head Football Coach Russ Cellan. "He visited there in December and has two former teammates that play on the team in starting LB Jerry Mackey and walk-on Rotimi Paul. He is close with those two and really felt comfortable there." The only problem with Jackman right now is he has not qualified yet. "Leslie has to take the SAT over again and is taking it the next time it is available."
The new coaching change at Syracuse
hasn't made him re-think liking Syracuse. "The
new coach at Syracuse has not changed anything, Leslie
still likes Syracuse and if he qualifies that is where
he will probably end up." Jackman has not heard from
Syracuse since the coaching change but Coach Cellan
expects to hear something from them in the next few
days. Besides Syracuse, Leslie has offers from
Michigan State, Rutgers, Connecticut, and Kansas State.
