Leal earned a five-star rating from 247 Sports. Although openly admitting he preferred to be considered a defensive end, Leal was the second-best defensive tackle in the 2019 recruiting class.

247 Sports ranked him as the second-best player in Texas, the 16th-best player in the nation, and a top-400 player of all time.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance.
  • Challenges inside with quickness and strong hands. A run-and-chase defender who can leave a mark.
  • Can make the impressive chest-to-chest bear hug tackle in the hole due to his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield.
  • Chases, using a long spin move to clear blocks. Low, strong off the line.
  • A coordinated athlete with a lightning-quick first step and natural explosion.
  • As a sophomore, Leal established himself as a game wrecker.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-teaming blocks.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ball carrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
  • Sees the ball well but is stuck on blocks when head-up; does not shed to make plays often enough.
  • Never out of a play, but can get out of control and work himself away from the action.
Scouting Report: Summary
His versatility to play anywhere along the line and athleticism should guarantee he enters the 2022 NFL Draft as a high first-round pick.
