"Well, he's a guy that we really expected to be a big factor for us this year," Swinney said. "He's just kind of turned the corner as far as how he prepares himself in the off-season, his practice habits, his mentality. He's just a mature guy. He's a junior now and he's grown up. He's always had the ability and the talent, but just kind of a work-in progress. Got hurt last year. But really proud of him. He is a really good football player and he's a match-up problem and a guy that, like I said, we expected to have a really good season and so far, so good."

Leggett has 13 receptions for 145 yards and four touchdowns this season. In contrast, he had 14 receptions for 161 yards and a touchdown for the entire 2014 season.
