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...
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
, Boston College
, Boise State
," 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."
