Lenoir Has Local Leader

Mar. 8 -- Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian athlete Deommodore Lenoir is one of the top sophomores in the region and had a strong showing at the recent Pylon 7v7 tournament in Las Vegas...

Deommodore Lenoir is a talented two-way player who focused at corner in Vegas. He looked very good when we watched him and was one of the better corners in the event.

"I still have a lot to work on," Lenoir said. "I like where my speed and strength are, I'm good in press, I think that's my strength right now. I want to work on my off coverage, just being better reading a receiver and fixing the little things."

Here was our evaluation of Lenoir following the tournament:

"Lenoir is a scrappy corner who loves to mix it up. He's a highly competitive kid who despite not having great size right now, he's probably about 5-9, 165, he's physical and tough. He has very good feet and can change direction and stop and start on a dime. He has natural cover skills and will be in the running for top corner in the state when he's a senior."

On the recruiting front, Lenoir is nearing double digit scholarship offers.

"I have offers from Tennessee, Oregon State, Miami, Boston College, UCLA, Boise State and California," Lenoir said. "UCLA was my most recent offer and I like them a lot. It's close to home and my family can see me play and I would like to stay close to home if I can."

"I like a few other schools too though. I like Tennessee, Oregon State and Boise State and I'm going to try and visit all of them. I have two years to go before I can sign anywhere so I'm in no hurry to make a decision. I want to wait until my senior year, take my trips and then I'll make a commitment."
