ARDEN, N.C. — Getting college offers is nearly a daily occurrence for Christ School’s five-star point guard Jalen Lecque. But this one was different.
Lecque, a 6-foot-4 guard from is rated the No. 10 overall player in the 2019 class and No. 2 combo guard by 247Sports, was offered by the Kentucky Wildcats Monday, adding another big name on a long list of top schools vying for the incoming senior.
Kentucky coach John Calipari had visited Christ School during the spring recruiting season, and extended the offer this week.
In addition to Kentucky, Lecque – a Brooklyn native – was recently offered by Indiana and Louisville and also holds offers from Villanova, Kansas, Texas and Florida, among others.
Lecque plays AAU ball with the NY Rens, the same AAU program that produced Kentucky guard Hamidou Diallo.
