5-star 2019 point guard Jalen Lecque (6’4″/190) just included NC State in his Top-7 schools, and word broke yesterday that he has scheduled his 1st official visit to NC State for September 8th and 9th.
NC State will host 2019 five-star Jalen Lecque for an official visit the first week of September (8/9), per source.
Kevin Keatts and staff attended Lecque’s games all summer long, even had full staff a few times.

Considering the fact that you only get 5 official visits, it’s obvious that NC State ranks highly within that Top-7, which also includes Tennessee, Texas Tech, Louisville, Oregon, TCU and UCLA.
In fact, the 71% of the experts (7 votes) over at 247Sports predict that Lecque will land at NC State in their crystal ball.
It’s worth noting who some of the analysts were that have already predicted that Lecque will land in Raleigh.
Brian Snow, a National Basketball Analyst for 247Sports, was one of them. He hasn’t gotten one prediction wrong in 2019 so far. A solid 28 of 28.
Also, 247Sports reporters that cover Louisville, Kentucky and Duke all also picked NC State.
ESPN ranks Lecque as the #11 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class, and the #2 point guard. Lecque was playing for Christ School in Arden, North Carolina, but he recently transferred to Brewster Academy up in New Hampshire for his Senior season.
No one has been recruiting Lecque harder than Kevin Keatts, and it looks like NC State’s taken the lead in his recruitment.
