He obviously has some speed and he has nice size too at 6-foot-1 1/2 and 174 pounds.
Slayton is ready to showcase his talents this fall and to start pulling in scholarship offers.
"Getting that first offer has crossed my mind a few times," Slayton said. "I have thought about recruiting a little, but not too much yet. I want to have a big season, get the offers, and just stay humble. I am working hard this summer and working towards getting that first offer."
If there is one school Slayton feels could be close to pulling the trigger, it would be the Vanderbilt Commodores.
He spent time in Nashville over the summer and he got a good feel for Vanderbilt and vice versa.
"I really like the coaching staff at Vanderbilt. They really talked with me a lot and Coach [Charles] Bankins (Tight ends/Special teams) is very nice and he was fun to talk to. He is my recruiting coach and I think we will be talking a lot.
"I worked out at wide receiver and cornerback there and I know they are very interested in me. The coaches told me that I could have an offer with a good performance this fall."
Another SEC school that Slayton camped at over the summer is Auburn. He has family ties to the University and the state it is located in.
"I went to camp at Auburn in July and I think I did pretty good. I worked at wide receiver and I caught a few balls against top defensive backs. I think it was a good camp experience overall for me.
"I have a lot of family in Alabama and a lot of them are big Auburn fans, so it was good to see the campus, facilities, and stadium. My cousin Darrel Crawford played for Auburn (1988-1991), so I have that connection, and I know a good bit about the program."
When it comes down to it, if he has the right options in recruiting, he would like to play somewhere close to his current home in Norcross, Ga.
"I really like the south. I am not a real fan of cold weather, so I would prefer to play in the south, but I will see what kind of offers I get before worrying too much about that. I like the weather down here, the football is great, and it would be my close to stay somewhere around here."
The junior will play both wide receiver and cornerback this fall at Greater Atlanta Christian and he could be recruited to play those positions or as an athlete by schools that see his junior film.
He will play either side of the ball, but he has a position preference.
"I like playing wide receiver the best," he said. "I grew up as a quarterback, so I like having the ball in my hands. I like having the opportunity to make plays, so I would prefer playing wide receiver in college if I have that choice. I can play cornerback too, so I would discuss it if a school came to me about it, but I really like offense."
As a sophomore, Slayton had four touchdowns and four interceptions.
