One of the biggest questions surrounding NC State basketball heading into next season is whether or not 4-star 2019 signee Jalen Lecque will actually step on campus in Raleigh.
At one point, Lecque was wrestling with whether or not he would reclassify to the 2018 class, but he decided to remain in the 2019 class to become more accustomed to the point guard position.
Lecque ultimately decided to remain in the 2019 class, and enroll as a post-graduate student at Brewster Academy (Wolfeboro, New Hampshire), where he just helped lead them to win a National Prep Championship.
At the end of the 2019 school year, he will technically be 1-year removed from his high school graduation, making him eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft.
Lecque had NBA scouts at his games all year long.
NC State fans are drooling over the idea of A backcourt of Markell Johnson (hopefully he returns) and Jalen Lecque in 2019-20.
While Lecque is likely a one-and-done prospect after one year in Raleigh, I can’t imagine he goes pro this year considering the most recent mock drafts.
