At 6’9″, T.J. Leaf helps give Foothills Christian one of the biggest front courts in all of San Diego County. Only in his sophomore season, Leaf is already highly touted and has been recruited, and offered, by some of college basketball’s elite programs. Rivals.com has Leaf listed as the No. 26 player in the class of 2016 and had this to say about him in February of 2013:
We couldn’t help but be impressed by the skill level and competitive fire of Leaf when we saw him at the Tarkanian Classic in late December. A combo forward who likes to face defenders up, Leaf can shoot the ball and is an outstanding passer out of the low or high post. He is a high-volume rebounder with great instincts and is willing to play with an edge. He’s looking like a high-major prospect.
