Darius Leonard, Campbell's second-leading scorer, will graduate Saturday and play his final season of college basketball at another school. Wake Forest has shown interest in Leonard, who plans to visit Drexel this week and travel early next week to Marquette, which is coached by former Duke assistant Steve Wojciechowski. Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, Miami and East Carolina are among the other programs that have reached out. The 6-foot-9, 225-pound Leonard made his biggest impact on the offensive end for Campbell, averaging 10.2 points and 4.9 rebounds while shooting 35-for-92 (38.0 percent) from 3-point range as a redshirt junior. He started 30 of 32 games, but averaged only 4.7 points over the final seven contests, including a Big South tournament opener in which he played a season-low 12 minutes off the bench. "We appreciate his contributions to the program," Campbell coach Kevin McGeehan said. "He's graduating Saturday, and we wish him luck in his future endeavors." Leonard, who is from Raleigh, began his college career at Kent State. He played one season with the Golden Flashes, sat out the 2011-12 season at Campbell, and averaged 5.6 points in 2012-13, when he didn't attempt a 3-pointer.
