It is official, Leslie is a Dawg

Travis Leslie signed with the University of Georgia on Wednesday and him being a Bulldog is now official. UGASports was at Columbia to see the high riser ink with the Dawgs and we caught up with Leslie right after he signed.

Leslie is a 6-foot-4, 185-pound athlete that will likely play the three position, better known as the wing or small forward at UGA. He is known for his athleticism, his leaping ability, and his ability to wow the crowd with his dunks.

The Dawgs do not have a guy like this on campus now, so Leslie was a target for UGA for some time. He, his mother, and his high school coach took an unofficial visit to Athens on March 24 and that is the day he decided UGA was a program he wanted to be a part of.

After leading his high school program to the AAAA State Championship this season, he made his verbal commitment official on April 16, 2008.

We were on the scene and just minutes after he inked with Dennis Felton and the Bulldogs, he talked with UGASports about his decision.

Find out why he chose UGA and more about you will be cheering for in Athens right here.
