One of the top wide receiver prospects in the class of 2010 is proving his value on the field. Tomball's Jordan Leslie continues to shred opposing defenses. Last week, the 6-foot-3, 200-pound receiver added another five catches for 105 yards and two scores against Spring Westfield to give him eight touchdowns on the season.
"For the season, I have 46 catches for about 800 yards," Leslie said. "I'm having a pretty good season, but what's important is helping the team win and we're trying to get on track."
Leslie's production has attracted early attention from a long list of D-1 schools including LSU, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Missouri, Kansas, Texas, and Texas A&M. The Aggies and Longhorns are the latest to make a strong push for the blue chip receiver.
"I got an e-mail from the A&M coaches last week inviting me to their game, so I went down there with my brother and a friend," Leslie said. "When I got back, I had five letters from them. Texas just invited me to their game with Oklahoma State, so I'm going there this weekend."
While Leslie has been to College Station for the 7-on-7 state tournament, his trip for the Texas A&M – Texas Tech game was his first experience at Kyle Field with the game day atmosphere. What did he think about the crowd?
"The atmosphere is great. Their fans are loud and really into the game," Leslie said. "It was interesting to see that the students stand the whole time to honor the players."
The Aggies came up short in the contest, but Leslie did see some promising aspects of the Texas A&M offense that is attractive for a wide receiver prospect in the future.
"I was very impressed with the quarterback Jerrod Johnson," Leslie said. "They have a pretty good passing game and I liked how they used the receivers. They finished with 260 yards."
Leslie indicated that the Aggies are definitely under consideration, but he was clear to say that it's way too early for him to start narrowing down his lists and naming leaders. With basketball season around the corner, he's not ready to start the recruiting process and wants to focus on the hard court for now.
"It's still too early for anything like that," Leslie said. "I'm just happy that schools are interested in me and I'll sort it all out down the road. I liked my trip to Texas A&M and they will be a school I'll consider when the time comes."
In addition to his scheduled unofficial visit to see the Longhorns this weekend, the Tomball native also says he's planning to visit Baton Rouge to see the LSU Tigers battle Alabama later in the season.
