5-Star Point Guard Jalen Lecque Announcing College Choice Tuesday

Published

on

5-Star 2019 Point Guard Jalen Lecque (6’4″/190) will be announcing his college choice next Tuesday, October 2nd, according to Rivals’ Corey Evans.

ESPN ranks Lecque as the #22 overall player in the 2019 recruiting class, and the #4 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.

Evans also put in his prediction today, and he believes Lecque will choose NC State.

Practically all of the experts (12 out of 13) over at 247Sports think he will run with the Wolfpack.

That list includes National Analysts:
Evan Daniels
Jerry Meyer
Josh Gershon
Brian Snow

For context, these guys don’t miss. They each have made 80+ crystal ball projections, and Daniels, Gershon, and Snow each have an accuracy rate over 92%.

Basically, if Lecque chooses someone else besides NC State next Tuesday, the best in the business would be shocked.

Lecque has a Final 7 of NC State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Louisville, Oregon, TCU and UCLA, but he has only taken Official Visits to Raleigh and Knoxville, and doesn’t seem to need to take any more to make his decision.

Tuesday could be a HUGE day for NC State head coach Kevin Keatts on the recruiting trail.

Published

ESPN really likes NC State’s 2020 Men’s Basketball recruiting class, which they rank 7th nationally.

They have recently upgraded Wolfpack signees Forward Nick Farrar and Guard Shakeel Moore to 4-Star prospects, which means that ESPN now ranks ALL 5 of NC State’s signees as 4-star prospects now.

As you can see above, according to ESPN’s rankings, NC State has signed the #3, #4, #5, and #6 players in the state of North Carolina.

What you can’t see above is that ESPN also ranks Center Ebenezer Dowuona as a 4-Star prospect, and the #10 player in the state of Georgia.

4-Star C Cliff Omoruyi Includes NC State in Top-8

Published

on

4-Star 2020 Center Cliff Omoruyi (6’11″/235) revealed his Top-8 schools today, and NC State made the cut alongside Memphis, UCONN, Rutgers, Kentucky, Miami, Auburn, and Arizona State.

NC State offered Omoruyi back on June 30th of last year, and he included the Wolfpack in his Top-13 back on September 28th.

247Sports ranks Omoruyi as the #42 overall player in the nation in the 2020 recruiting class, the #8 Center, and the #2 player in the state of New Jersey. Omoruyi plays for Roselle Catholic (Roselle, NJ).

He doesn’t plan on making his decision until April 15th.

Technically speaking, NC State’s class is full, but you have to always be prepared for attrition, especially if Redshirt Junior Forward D.J. Funderburk decides to explore his professional options after 4 years of college.
