Q&A: Damien Leonard

One of the best scorers in the 2011 class is Damien Leonard. Leonard has been playing great ball so far this summer and has seen his recruitment pick up. DeaconSports caught up with Leonard for a short Q&A session.

DeaconSports: How do you feel you played in Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago?
Damien Leonard: "Well, playing in Cincinnati earlier in the week took a lot out of me. I think I played hard and tried to help the team as much as I could."

DeaconSports: What separates you from other great shooting guards in 2011?
Damien Leonard: "I would say my ability to pass the ball. I try to get all of my teammates involved first and then do my thing."

DeaconSports: I know you have a ton of offers. What are a few that come to mind at this point?
Damien Leonard: "Kentucky, Wake Forest, Clemson, Memphis, Georgia Tech, Villanova, Texas, and Florida."

DeaconSports: What are your thoughts on Wake?
Damien Leonard: "I'm wide open right now but I really like Wake. They put a lot of players in the NBA. I am getting to know the coaches at Wake very well."

DeaconSports: Any plans to visit Wake this summer?
Damien Leonard: "Coach LaRue and I have been talking about that. I would like to visit there sometime in August. That will be my first visit to Wake."

Note: Damien Leonard is one of the best players in the 2011 class. He has the ability to get his shot off on anyone. He takes and makes very difficult shots yet is a team player. Leonard will remain a priority for the Wake Forest coaching staff in the 2011 class.
