UK Basketball Recruiting: Wildcats not in good shape for Jalen Lecque

Jalen Lecque not likely to end up at Kentucky, but he may end up in the SEC.

USA Today High School Sports

Five-star point guard Jalen Lecque is still deciding on what class he’ll be in, 2018 or 2019, but either way, he’s apparently unlikely to be in a Kentucky Wildcats uniform.

According to a report from Kentucky Sports Radio’s TJ Walker, Lecque is unlikely to commit to Kentucky, regardless of whether he stays in the 2019 class or moves up to 2018. Lecque may still end up in the SEC playing for the Tennessee Volunteers.

Here’s what Walker said:

He is still deciding whether to stay in 2019 or move to 2018, but it’s unlikely he ends up at UK in either class. 2018 certainly won’t happen for Lecque and UK, but there’s some rumblings that he prefers other schools. I actually think NC State and Tennessee are in really nice spots for Lecque. Lecque would be a fun combo guard to pair with Maxey in 2019, and it’s not impossible, but seems more unlikely.

Kentucky was previously thought to be in a good spot for Lecque. They don’t have any prediction in his crystal ball, but there’s only been two predictions so far. With Kentucky offering him a scholarship in April, the Wildcats seemed to be warming on him.

Lecque is the No. 11 player in his class on the 247 Sports Composite. He currently has 38 offers.
