Early years

Leslie attended Tomball High School in Tomball, Texas, where he was a three-year varsity letterwinner for coach Tommy Kaiser. He switched from quarterback to wide receiver for his sophomore year and responded by tallying 54 receptions for 770 yards and five touchdowns, earning All-Region Newcomer of the Year. He made 54 catches for 1,014 yards (18.9 avg.) with 10 TDs his junior season while also adding five punt returns for 49 yards (9.8 avg.) and seven kickoff returns for 186 yards (26.6 avg.). As a senior, he compiled 55 catches for 742 yards (13.5 avg.) with nine touchdowns, and also had eight punt returns for 113 yards (14.1 avg.) and seven kickoff returns for 132 yards (18.9 avg.). He was also a three-time Academic All-District pick and also made the Academic All-State team.[1]

Also a standout in basketball and track & field, Leslie was a multiple All-District choice in basketball and a runner-up finisher in the high jump at the 2009 regional meet with a leap of 2.03 meters (6 feet, 8 inches).[2] He also had personal-best leaps of 6.47 meters (21 feet, 2.25 inches) in the long jump[3] and 13.37 meters (43 feet, 10.5 inches) in the triple jump.[4]

In his freshman year, Leslie befriended Jimmy Butler (who now plays for the Chicago Bulls). They played together on the basketball team. Since Butler was homeless at the time, Leslie's family allowed Butler to live with them.
