NC State’s Kevin Keatts Watches Moore & Lecque on Day 1 of Peach Jam

Published

on

The Dead period is over, and as soon as Evaluation Period opened yesterday at 5pm, NC State’s Kevin Keatts was front and center to watch 5-Star prospects Wendell Moore and Jalen Lecque down at the Peach Jam in North Augusta, SC according to Jonas Pope IV of the News & Observer.

“If it’s a forgone conclusion that Concord’s Wendell Moore, Jr. is Duke or Carolina bound, somebody forgot to tell N.C. State head coach Kevin Keatts.

Keatts and two of his assistant coaches were constants on court six, where Moore and his CP3 teammates kicked off day one of the EYBL Peach Jam with a win.

Moore has North Carolina, N.C. State, Duke, Wake Forest and South Carolina in his top five.

As soon as the game tipped off, Keatts, James Johnson and Takayo Siddle were in their seats, front row to watch Moore, who helped lead Cox Mills to back-to-back NCHSAA 3A basketball titles. On the NIKE circuit this summer, Moore has averaged 17.7 points per game and 6.5 rebounds. Prior to the Peach Jam event Moore was named All-EYBL First Team.

Moments later, Duke assistant coach Chris Carrawell made his way into the gymnasium, but Keatts held ground letting Moore know he was the first to lay eyes on the five-star prospect.

Keatts stuck around to watch Jalen Lecque and the New York Renaissance play in the second game of the day. Lecque, who played last season at the Christ School in Arden, is the No. 1 player in North Carolina, drawing interest from N.C. State and North Carolina. However, there are rumors that Lecque could return to his native New York for his senior season or transfer to IMG Academy in Florida. No matter where he plays, the same college coaches, Keatts included, will make the trip to see him play.“ (N&O)
