* Big-time athlete
* Highlight-reel dunker
* Great rebounder for his size
* Doesn’t have prototypical two-guard size
* Needs to become more consistent with his perimeter shot
Leslie is all in after originally saying he was only testing the waters and then deciding to sign with an agent. He's undersized for an NBA two guard, but his athleticism has impressed scouts and he's going to get drafted. Whether it's late in the first round or early in the second depends on individual workouts. There's no doubt that Leslie has the athletic ability to play in the NBA.
Leslie was voted second-team All-SEC by the league's coaches. He finished second on his team in scoring and rebounding. Was voted the best dunker in college basketball by a panel of voters on ESPN's College Gameday.
16.4 ppg, 7.6 rpg, 1.4 apg, 2.5 tpg, 1.6 bpg, 1.1 spg, 31.2 mpg, .481 FG, .311 3PT, .689 FT
In 2009-10, the year Leslie emerged as a player in coach Mark Fox's first season, he surpassed his previous year's scoring total in just 13 games and established career highs in six major statistics.
Reminds me of:
What Insiders Say:
Georgia coach Mark Fox
"Travis is a pretty difficult match-up for people. We've worked very hard on his shooting, to the point he's become a much better shooter than people realize. He was very coachable, and he welcomed our style of play and excelled in it."
What Outsiders Say:
South Carolina coach Darrin Horn
"He's an athletic freak, a guy that is capable athletically of just about anything."
