Leslie said earlier this week that he expect to make a decision by the end of the week and that he was “leaning a little bit one way,” according to Star News Online.
“Last year we definitely ended on a good note and we did a lot of things people didn’t think that we’d be able to do,” Leslie said. “That’s definitely good for us and good for me, and it’s definitely going to play a part in my decision.” Leslie was named to the second-team All-ACC this season after averaging 14.6 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game for the Wolfpack.
