Dynamo 2019 point guard Jalen Lecque, a serious St. John’s target, might be blowing up a little too much.
Already with offers from the likes of North Carolina and Kansas, Lecque, a 6’4” guard from the Bronx, has heard from St. John’s, including visits before the season. But judging by this weekend’s Holiday Hoopsfest, getting Lecque to campus is going to get harder with each passing game.
Hard to not like Jalen Lecque of the Christ School (NC). He's all kinds of entertaining. Big and powerful and athletic and fast and strong and on and on. I don't have a great feel for the top overall guys yet in 2019 but he's gotta be a 5-star contender.— Justin Young (@JustinDYoung) November 25, 2017
From 247 Sports:
Heading into the Holiday Hoopsgiving event, it was evident that Jalen Lecque was a talented player, but even in a blowout loss, Lecque managed to raise expectations and stand out in an eye-opening type of way. Lecque, who stands 6-foot-4 with an impressive build and long arms, is an explosive athlete, and his leaping ability was on full display in transition and off drives in the half court. Lecque has impressive speed, is quick off his feet and is a very good rebounder for a perimeter player. He still needs to polish up his jump shot and continue to learn the point guard position, but there’s a lot of upside and potential here. In all, Lecque finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds in Christ School’s loss to McEachern.
Christ School (NC) guard Jalen Lecque is a five-star prospect and a NBA level athlete. He has a lot of unique qualities that teams beyond the college level covet. The 6-foot-4 guard from New York has a flair to his game that few have. His first step (going left and right) is as deadly as any guard in the country. The class of 2019 has a couple of studs at the top of the position in Ashton Hagans and Cole Anthony. Lecque is in the same category as those guys.
