RaiderPower.com caught up with the talented athlete to find out how recruiting is going and what his summer plans are.

"I have six offers for football: Houston, Arizona, UTEP, Lousisana Tech, Buffalo, and Tulsa. I also have on basketball scholarship offer from Texas State."

All of the schools that have offered are looking at Leslie as a receiver, and programs around the Big 12, a conference that boasts some of the best receivers in the country, are showing interest as well.

"I'm also hearing from OSU, Texas Tech, OU, UCLA, Rice… just a lot of different schools."

As for Texas Tech, Jordan attended a Junior Day in Lubbock last year, which is what sparked the school's interest in the talented wideout.

"Coach Simmons is my recruiting coordinator for Texas Tech. I'm not hearing from them as much as I was. For a long time, they said they really liked me, and I felt like they were close to offering me a scholarship, so I'm just waiting right now.

"I think they were impressed with my size and hands, and I really like how much they pass and just how they give you a lot of opportunities to catch the ball."

For now, Leslie is staying busy playing basketball and being patient on the recruiting front.

"At this point, I don't really have a top five or anything now. I'm open to everyone. I'm going to try to take some visits this summer to narrow things down, but I don't have anything set up yet. I'm play AAU basketball too, so it's pretty hard to find time to take visits. I'm trying to plan everything out right now."
