Leonard has two visits set

After a successful sophomore campaign with Seirra College, DE Josh Leonard (6-3, 275) is ready to get on with his college football career and he'll be taking some visits to some four-year schools very soon.

"I'll be heading to Nevada on (December) 15th and to Hawaii on January 12th," Leonard told JCFootball.com. "Boise State and Wyoming have both offered and I'm getting ready to set up visits there as well.

"Washington, Washington State, Oregon and Oregon State have all been talking to me a lot, but none of them have offered. The first one that offers will get my last visit basically."

As a sophomore, Leonard posted three sacks and 15 tackles, including four tackles for loss. He was named the Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Year and received All-Region and All-American honors as well.

He's a complete defensive end, able to play the run and pass with equal effectiveness.

"I bench 475 and I run a 4.7 forty so I can do both really well I think," Leonard said. "I hold the point well with my strength and I'm probably a better bull-rusher than speed guy, but I can do both of those as well.

"I want schools to know that I can do both and be successful at both."

Leonard said he's looking for a school that has a good combination of academics and football, but he also wants the chance at early playing time.

"It's basically going to be the full package," Leonard said. "I want to have good academics, but football is important to me as well. I need to see how I get along with the coaches, the players and how I like the area as well."

Leonard will graduate in May and will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
