STRENGTHS IN LEEK LEEK'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Leek Leek can cause havoc around the rim with his ability to jump. He is not afraid to battle the bigger bodies around the rim and utilizes his athletic skills to make himself three to four inches bigger.

How to play the game of basketball is beginning to register for Leek, who is just 16 years old. Obviously, he has to learn to use his skills from the mid-range area shooting wise before he is ready to land high major offers.

But all this will take is some hard work. You can't teach a player to jump over the rim.

The level of interest in Leek's skills early on is Syracuse, DePaul, St. John's, Georgetown and Pittsburgh. How he competes this season in a tough schedule set up by OSNA will determine the amount of scholarship offers over the next two seasons.
