OL TJ Leifheit (6-7 300) of Wilmington, NC is piling up the offers. So far, Clemson, USC, North Carolina, NC State, Wake Forest, Tennessee, FSU, California, Texas Tech, Duke, Maryland, and East Carolina have offered. He is also getting attention from Virginia Tech, Virginia, Georgia Tech, Stanford, UCLA, Miami, and Penn State among others.
Leifheit has already taken junior day visits to NC State and Duke and is heading to North Carolina this weekend.
He says the highlight of his Duke visit was the offensive line coach. "I got to meet Coach (Matt) Luke and he was a real good guy," said Leifheit. "They also told me they are one of the top 12 or 13 schools academically in the world and academics are really important to me."
He also liked NC State's o-line coach. "I met Coach (Don) Horton and he was telling me how they had put 11 lineman into the NFL while at Boston College," he said. "That's also really important to me."
