Jalen Lecque

Position: PG From: NC State (Commit) Class/YOB: HS
Height: 6’3 Weight: 180 Wingspan: 6’9

Strengths:

  • Elite level athleticism. He absolutely explodes off the ground and has a burst with the ball that is different than other prospects
  • Plus length will give him an advantage as a defender. He is a little immature on that end, but he can make up for some mistakes with his athletic ability
  • Finishes with flare above the rim. He has power and hangtime that allow him to put on some highlight films
  • Vision is there as a playmaker. When he is in transition, he finds open guys

Weaknesses:

  • Has hot-and-cold decision making with the ball. He applies constant pressure getting downhill, but hasn’t mastered how to consistently stay under control
  • Shooting is a work-in-progress. Part of me would like to see him go to NC State and really dive deep into compacting his form
  • Doesn’t display the same constant effort on defense that he does when the ball is in his hands
  • Will he be able to effectively play off the ball? Shooting is below average and he doesn’t move a ton without the ball. He has a combo-guard look, but he is more of a ball-watcher when he isn’t playing point
