SacFalcFan Posted April 16, 2008 Share Posted April 16, 2008 They both signed their letters today. Here is the article on Leslie: Columbia basketballer Leslie signs with GeorgiaEagles star makes it official, opening spring signing periodBy DERRICK MAHONEThe Atlanta Journal-ConstitutionPublished on: 04/16/08An upgraded practice facility and a late run in the SEC tournament was all Travis Leslie needed to convince him that Georgia was a perfect fit.Leslie, the AJC Class AAAA basketball player of the year from Columbia High, officially signed with the Bulldogs on Wednesday to open the spring signing period that lasts until mid-May."I like the staff at Georgia," said Leslie, who led Columbia to the state title last month. "I think with the recruiting class coming in that we have a shot at keeping it going. I hate losing. It is up to the players to make sure Georgia stays on top."The 6-foot-4 Leslie averaged 21 points and eight rebounds to help the Eagles win their second title in three years. He said Georgia freshman center Jeremy Price played a big part in him choosing the Bulldogs over Clemson."Jeremy was my host when I went on my visit a few weeks ago," Leslie said. "He treated me real well."Leslie's mother, Virginia, said she was impressed when she met Bulldogs coach Dennis Felton and likes his disciplinary style. She compared Felton to Columbia coach Phil McCrary."I'm very pleased with Travis' decision," Virginia Leslie said. "I stay on him at home and coach McCrary was real tough, and that is what he needs. There will not be any goofing around because he knows I will not, and coach [Felton] will not, stand for it."Leslie's teammate, Kenny Mitchell, signed with Charleston Southern during the ceremony in the school's media center.http://www.ajc.com/highschool/content/spor...eslie_0416.html Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
