A&M DT Verbal: Leslie Ray Scouting Report

Midland Lee DT <b>Leslie Ray</b> opted to end the suspense early in favor of Texas A&M. One of the top DTs in the Lone Star Sate, we bring you a scouting report on him now, and more, including how firm his commitment might be.<p>

"(Leslie Ray) committed to A&M early," Midland Lee head coach Randy Quisenberry told Scout.com. "He's 6-2, 6-2.5, 268 pounds and runs a 5.0 forty."

While Ray is in the Maroon/White fold, some wonder how firm that commitment might be, and schools such as Nebraska, Texas and Texas Tech have made their interest known.

For instance, despite his early commitment, Texas wanted Ray to attend one of their Junior Days. And, both Nebraska and Texas Tech continue wooing the Scout.com Texas Top 200 prospect, hoping to convince him to take a closer look at their respective programs.

JR Season Stats: 86 tackles, 12 TFL, 13 sacks.

Accolades: 1st-Team all-district.

Weight room-numbers: 300 Bench, 270 Incline, 360 Squat, 300 Power clean.

Scouting Report (via Coach Quisenberry): "He's been a 2-year starter for us and will be a 3-year starter for us this year. The biggest thing to note is he's so strong. Of course, he's plays basketball, so he can get a lot stronger than he already is, and will. The neatest thing is his athleticism. He was a running back before, so he's really athletic. Last year he played DT and NT for us but this year, we're going to put him on the edge because he's so explosive. He has phenomenal quickness, can dunk a basketball and when he wants, can be unblockable. He recently came in weighing 275 pounds and hasn't lost any speed or quickness."
