N.C. State commit Jalen Lecque signed his National Letter of Intent on Tuesday night, his father told ZAGSBLOG.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Lecque said last weekend at the National Prep Showcase that he was leaning towards signing this week. The NCAA early signing period ends Wednesday (today). Lecque committed to N.C. State last month.
“We signed yesterday and we’re in,” Derrick Lecque said by phone. “I was just waiting this morning for confirmation.”

Lecque could declare for the 2019 NBA Draft because he’s a year removed from his graduating class and will turn 19 in 2019. He’s currently projected as the No. 25 pick in 2019 per ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. Representatives from 16 NBA teams watched Lecque and his Brewster Academy team go 0-2 at the National Prep Showcase at Albertus Magnus College.
