Justin Leon, a 6’8 forward out of Shawnee CC, has committed to Florida. Leon was one the top available prospect in the 2015 JUCO class.
Leon, a Conway, AR native, is an active and skilled forward who has the ability to face up in the mid and high post and attack off the dribble. He also hits the glass well on both ends and can score the ball around the rim in the low post. Leon handles the ball well for his size and also has the ability to stretch the floor and attack off the dribble in transition. He averaged 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds while shooting 56% from the field.
Leon announced via Twitter last week that he was considering Florida, Indiana, Arkansas, Louisiana Tech and Kansas St before committing to Florida yesterday. Leon obviously has a solid relationship with the new Florida staff because they recruited him and signed him at Louisiana Tech. This seems to be the main reason that he chose Florida over others without taking any visits.
