RECRUITING SERVICE ASSESSMENTS

“Leal is known as an extremely high-motor player who is a good shooter, and a solid athlete.  At around 6-foot-5 and 200 pounds, Leal is a physical wing who has defensive potential, and also should be a very good shooter in college, though at this current time his shot can be a little bit inconsistent.”

— Brian Snow, 247Sports

“Leal is a confident shooter that knocks it down from long range at a high percentage.  He will need to develop a quicker release at the college level.  Leal surprises you with just how good of an athlete he is, he runs the floor well, and he plays with passion.  Leal can score at all three levels but will need to improve his handle to create space at the next level.  All the makings of a highly valuable four-year program/culture guy.”

— Mike Schumann, The Daily Hoosier

QUOTABLE

On receiving an Indiana offer:

“It was definitely special for me and my family,” Leal said. “We were really grateful to finally hear those words and everything.”

— Indianapolis Star

“I like that IU has given me a chance to play for my hometown school and favorite childhood program, it’s a historic program with a great fan base. There’s a lot to like about the staff as well.”

— Zags Blog
