In mid-April, Tristan Leigh (2021 OT 6-5 255) held four college scholarship offers. He picked up a couple more, then a flood of offers came.
Just days into May, Tristan now holds a dozen offers.
Visits to Wake Forest and Virginia Tech in the first weekend of April yielded offers. Other schools jumped on board as well.
Leigh commented on an offer from the UNC Tar Heels:
“I’m really excited about (the offer from UNC), they have a program that has a bright future with a great coaching staff and community,” Tristan said. “I’m starting to build a relationship with the coach now, coach Searels has been recruiting me.”
Since the UNC offer a week ago, offers have come in from Michigan, Maryland and East Carolina. That brings his total to 12.
“It’s exciting, and I’m very humbled to experience this process,” he said.
The full offer list is impressive. Prior to competing at the recruit757/Sparta Science Showcase at Redskins Park in March, Leigh had offers from UVA and Purdue.
Visits and an increased profile have paid off. His list of a dozen schools includes Pitt, Louisville, Rutgers, Wake Forest, Virginia Tech, Penn State, Michigan, Maryland and East Carolina.
We’re betting that many more offers are coming his way.
