Yet another DMV area and more specifically Arundel County recruit has committed to a college program. As former South River Wide Receiver Sean Leonard officially announced his commitment this past Tuesday over his social media. Leonard now joins his former QB David Foust, along with other notable recruits out of Arundel such as Austin Slye, John Hardcastle, and Nasir Franklin-Branch to reveal the college program they will join. This article will look to present which school Sean Leonard has elected to join. While depicting the type of player this school is getting by highlighting stats and his skillset.
Sean Leonard at 6’2” 190 lbs. is a long and solid wide receiver that produced consistently during his time with South River High School. Leonard officially announced he committed to The University of Maryland to continue his football career. As the young pass catcher has chosen to join the Big Ten program and remain close to home. It certainly will be exciting to see how his career advances. One thing for sure is that Maryland is getting a decorated and talented asset to add to their program.
Leonard was named by the Baltimore Sun a 1st Team All-Met member. As well as, a 2nd Team All-Met member by the Washington Post last season. He also earned a selection to play for Team Maryland in the Big 33 game last February. Leonard has earned the interest and recognition someone of his talent and production deserve. Which is why it was no shock a program like Maryland offered him a Preferred Walk On Offer.
In terms of his skillset Maryland is getting an impact player with the tools to be a contributor sooner then some may think. Leonard is a long and rangy receiver with good ball skills. He is not a speed burner but runs solid routes and is highly effective in the intermediate passing game. Despite not having great speed Leonard is able to get over the top and make plays deep down field because of how he sets up his opponents. He uses his hands to fight off defenders in tight man coverage. While using his size and length to wall off defenders and position himself to make plays on the ball. Leonard even showed the ability to contribute at corner for South River’s defense. Displaying his versatility and willingness to help his team as a player. Leonard though is a receiver first and as his routes running continues to better, as it did throughout his high school career. Along with continuing to mature physically Maryland will have a great receiving weapon to cultivate going forward.
