In his second full recruiting class at NC State, Kevin Keatts has landed the highest-rated recruit of his brief tenure. On Tuesday (Oct. 2), 5-star guard Jalen Lecque committed to NC State.
Taking a page out of Damian Lillard’s playbook, Lecque broke the news on his Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The 6-foot-4 Lecque, who hails from the Bronx (BX!), plays his prep ball for Brewster Academy (New Hampshire). This, of course, is the same school that helped produced former NC State star and current Phoenix Suns forward T.J. Warren.
Brewster to State. Fire connection

Lecque has some roots to the state of North Carolina, though; he previously played at Christ School in Arden, North Carolina.
Fellow ACC rival Louisville was in the running for Lecque, too. Outside of the league: Oregon, UCLA, TCU, Texas Tech and Tennessee were also in the mix.
