His interception off of a Gunnar Holcombe tipped pass provided one of Monday's highlights.
Leggett said that, while he's in new surroundings, the basics of the game remain the same.
"It's what I've been working for all my life, playing on a D-I field," he said. "At the end of the day, we're playing football. There's nothing to be really nervous about."

HOLLIDAY ANNOUNCED after Monday's morning practice that offensive lineman Josue Joseph, tight end Rakim Reed and linebacker T.J. Ross were no longer with the team.
Ross played in 10 games, recording seven tackles and assisting in a tackle for loss with one quarterback hurry. Reed participated in spring drills after arriving from Fork Union Military Academy, but transferred to Division II Walsh University. Another Fork Union tight end, Chris Hall, who was supposed to transfer to Marshall, instead transferred to Virginia Union.
He added that linebacker Kent Turene and defensive back Corey Tindal, both 2012 signees from Atlanta Sports Academy, will arrive when classes start. Holliday knew of no NCAA Clearinghouse issues.
Holliday also said there was no timetable for defensive lineman Ken Smith (undisclosed injury) and defensive back Darryl Roberts (wore a walking boot on his right foot) to return to the practice field.
