The senior linebacker was a force for the Panthers on defense, totaling 54 tackles and 10 sacks during the 2015 season.
He also caught four passes for 60 yards and a touchdown on offense.
The Panthers stumbled a bit out of the gates this season, dropping two of their first three games of the year. But they rebounded nicely and fought their way through the 5A playoffs before falling to Valor Christian in the state title game.
Leyva is the latest commit for the class of 2016. He will officially sign his letter of intent on national signing day, Feb. 3.
