DraftNasty spotlights Jalen Lecque, PG-NC State (VIDEO): 2019 NBA Draft preview

Lecque -a five-star recruit in the 2019 high school class- took a circuitous route to this year’s NBA Draft. Despite being able to have played in college this past season, he played an extra year at Brewster Academy (N.H.) in 2018-19. After committing to play for NC State in 2019-20, he entered the 2019 NBA Draft. His sterling athleticism was on display at the 2019 NBA Combine, when he posted an eye-opening 43 1/2-inch maximum vertical jump.  Lecque decided to stay in this year’s draft as the rare fifth-year high school senior.  We got an up close look at the Manhattan native and his New York Rensaissance AAU squad during the 2018 Nike EBYL Peach Jam.
