”I actually called their coaches last week after my game and that’s when they offered,” said the 6-foot-4 ½, 282-pound Leota. “I was really excited. They’re recruiting me the hardest.”
Leota stayed busy this summer by attending camps at Georgia Tech, Clemson, NC State, Duke and most recently Tennessee.
”I loved the camp at Tennessee,” he said. “My favorite parts were seeing the stadium and the one-on-one drills with the defensive linemen. I felt like I performed pretty well.
”I had a chance to talk to (offense line) coach (Don) Mahoney. He said I was on his recruiting board and that he wanted me to come back for the game.”
He is looking forward to seeing taking some trips this fall.
”I think I’m going to visit Boston College and NC State,” Leota said. “I’m not sure which other schools I’m going to visit yet.”
