NC State Commit Jalen Lecque Talks Possibility of Going Straight to NBA

Published

on

NC State 2019 Basketball Commit Jalen Lecque has been down in the Bahamas with his Brewster Academy prep squad, and 7 NBA teams were down there scouting him and some of the other talent on display.

Lecque caught up with ESPN, and gave his perspective on the possibility of skipping college at NC State altogether, and going straight to the NBA.

“I could be a freshman on a college campus right now,” Lecque told ESPN. “I am eligible for the [2019] draft. I’m a fifth-year senior, but I’m also eligible for the draft because of my grades.”

“I am interested in everything because the NBA is my goal at the end of the day,” he said. “I want to be a great college player, but my end goal is to help my family. I want to be a concrete Round 1 player if I do make that decision. If I’m guaranteed a Round 1 position, then you never know. I could see myself doing it if I am in a good position at the end of the year. A college education is so important and making that jump is really hard, so I really gotta think about that, but if I’m Round 1, then that’s different.”

“We’re taking it real slow,” he said. “At the end of the year, I will have an answer for it. But I love NC State and NC State is a great place and I am looking forward to it.” (ESPN)

This isn’t a new revelation that this is a possibility, but the first time Lecque has spoken on it since his commitment to NC State.

Check out these highlights of Lecque and the rest of his Brewster crew down in the Bahamas.

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

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.
