Jalen Lecque has declared for the 2019 NBA Draft.
The North Carolina State commit, a fifth-year high school player at Brewster Academy (Wolfeboro, N.H.), posted a video on twitter announcing his decision Saturday.
It comes as no surprise, as Lecque had already pulled out of the Jordan Brand Classic to prepare for the draft. But this announcement means the NBA has accepted his eligibility to join the league.
At the beginning of the month, Lecque’s father told ESPN his son had submitted his transcripts to the league. Because Lecque reclassified after his junior year, he is a year removed from his original high school class and will be 19 years old in June.

According to Sports Illustrated, Lecque finished his NCAA requirements for graduation in the 2017-18 school year.
Lecque has not ruled out the possibility of playing at North Carolina State next year, where he is currently committed, according to Sports Illustrated.
