Academics in focus for Leamon
Now, after playing a big part of Woodruff's run to the South Carolina 2A title game, Leamon's full attention is on getting grades and test score right for Clemson.
"I'm just trying to finish it up strong," he told CUTigers.com.
The No. 30 offensive tackle in the class of 2012 keeps in regular touch with Clemson wide receivers coach Jeff Scott, who serves as the primary recruiter for Leamon.
"Coach Scott tells me to stay focused. I'm doing pretty good," Leamon said.
Whether or not he takes the prep route to a school like Hargrave or Fork Union, Leamon still hopes that he's able to make it into Clemson by next fall.
"I haven't sat down and thought of [his prep options]. I'm just trying to get in and am working hard," he said.
The 6-foot-6, 260-pound senior offensive tackle missed the first three Shrine Bowl practices of the week after waiting to see the results of an MRI on his shoulder. It was originally reported that he was sitting because of an illness.
Leamon is now working with fellow commitments Oliver Jones and Patrick Destefano.
"It's just fun being with the other guys that are committed," Leamon said.
