''They caught my attention as a kid,'' Leonard told Allen Wallace of TheInsiders.com. ''I liked watching them play against Washington.''
''Like any prep player, I like the big-time schools, and that's why I like Tennessee,'' he said. ''They have a name and are established. I'm going there to check them out for the spring game on April 17 and see if I like it.''
Leonard, who doubles as a tight end, finished his junior season with 23 catches for 525 yards and 10 TDs. Defensively, he had 90 tackles.
A two-time all-league pick, Leonard boasts a 325-pound bench press and a 550 squat. Clearly, he has the power to produce at the big-time level.
''I can read linemen well and I'm pretty strong,'' he said. ''I play well sideline-to-sideline. I need to work on my overall speed and quickness. I want to improve my footwork and getting off blocks better.''
Leonard is a B student who will take the SAT on May 1.
