2014 Georgia Tech commit C.J. Leggett is looking to do big things on the Flats next season for the Yellow Jackets. The 3|4-star commit out of North Gwinnett High School in Suwanee, Ga., who also spent a year at Chattahoochee High School in Duluth, Ga., has had an impressive high school career. His scholarships offers may not show it, but he can make a huge impact on a football team.
The 5’10” running back received offers from Pittsburgh, UCLA, and of course Georgia Tech, among others. Leggett poses a threat on the ground and through the air with his stats in his senior season proving that statement to be true. Leggett carried the ball 280 times in 2013 for 1,734 yards with a long of 82 yards and scored an outstanding 23 times. In 2013, Leggett also caught 23 balls for 260 yards with a long of 56 and one touchdown.
While at Chattahoochee High, Leggett’s stats weren’t at all even noticeable among top High School players in nation yet alone in the state. In the lone varsity season with CHS, Leggett only carried the ball 55 times for 427 yards with a long of 49 yards and scored just 5 times. In that same season he only caught 6 balls for 124 yards with a long of 47 yards and 1 touchdown, but averaged an amazing 20.67 yards per catch. That type of production per touch (as well as his size) is very similar to what has been seen from Tech’s diminutive star, Robert Godhigh.
Looking over the scouting report of Leggett some say he won’t be all that special, but I promise if you turn out the highlight reel or go and search his name on the internet, you can tell he’s going to be something special. With his breakaway speed and his ability to outrun the defender to the corner, he already looks to be an excellent fit in Paul Johnson‘s offense or any other offensive scheme for that matter.
It’s time to hop on the C.J. Leggett Bandwagon and watch him take this Georgia Tech Football team to another level and help them regain national recognition.
