After narrowing his choices to two schools and setting up official visits, there has been a change of plans for Fresno (Calif.) Edison defensive back Brandon Leslie. It now looks like the talented safety will make his college decision before the summer is out.
Nebraska and Georgia Tech have been the heavy leaders for Leslie for the past few months and nothing has changed there.
"Those are my two schools and my decision will be made among one of those two," Leslie said. "There is a lot to like about both of them and it's going to be a really tough decision for me.
"Georgia Tech is in the ACC and that's a great conference for football. I like the coaches there and academically, you can't beat them. I want to major in Engineering and they have one of the top programs in that field of study so there is a ton of pluses.
"With Nebraska, I have a lot of family there and the comfort level I have with them is pretty strong. I'm cousins with Steve Taylor who played quarterback there and he has a lot of great things to say about the school. Even though he's gone, he said he still comes back and visits all the time.
"I'm also cousins with Toney McCray who is coming to Nebraska in the fall to play basketball. My family likes the fact that I'll know people and have a support group already in place if I chose Nebraska. I know I haven't visited either school yet but I feel like I know enough about each school to make a decision without first checking out the place.
"The whole recruiting process has become kind of tired to me and that's why I would like to get it out of the way early now after originally planning to take official visits. It's just kind of hectic and I figure if I get it out of the way, I can just relax and enjoy the my upcoming senior year and not have to worry about recruiting or any other distractions."
Leslie said he's currently on track to graduate early if that is something he decides he wants to do.
"It's up to me but I'll have enough credits to graduate and enroll in time for Spring ball wherever I sign," Leslie said. "It all depends on whether or not I play basketball. If I play basketball, I won't be able to do it but if I don't play basketball, then I'll for sure be graduating in December and will be enroll in the Spring."
